Unmitigated Disaster

funnycartoon19Yesterday when I was checking out a theme for a new blog, What’s left of my life, I did a trial run here.

Didn’t look right, so I changed back to this theme…

Guess what?


I just discovered it.

All my widgets had disappeared.

So, I panicked, and had a glass of chocolate, then came back and checked the inactive widgets on a whim.

Phew! Relief, most of the widgets had been parked there.

I have just spent the last hour putting them back in place. They’re not all in the right places yet, I’ll do some tweeking later.

As near as I can figure it, I lost two completely.

So I got off lightly.

I’ll return you to the regular programme, new post coming up in 45 minutes.

  1. I did a similar thing the last time I changed my theme. Glad you didn’t lose them all.



    • >Lois, I consider that I got off lightly. I had even checked the theme on my testit blog before I fiddled, so it wasn’t like I was being an old fool and rushing blindly ahead. Putting the widgets back was time consuming, the appearance/widgets is a horror of a design, where you have to go to the bottom of the page and painstakingly drag the widgets up to the top. It had to be designed by the Amish, no techology allowed. 🙂
