[SOLVED] Missing all my Atahualpa Theme Options
Somehow I'm now missing my Atahualpa theme options - basically everything that allows me to define sidebars, widgets, plugins, etc.
Is this a typical problem? I can't seem to locate it in the forum...
I only have the following headers:

The whole section for ATO is missing.

What version of Atahualpa, WP, and PHP?
Was it working?
What did you change

Thanks for the quick response.
My version of wordpress is 2.8.2.
I'm not sure how to figure out the other two.
Last week I had a friend help me load a Contact 7 form. Could it have happened then?
All I've done since is add some pages and photos.

First off don't panic, The Atahualpa options are stored in teh WordPress database.

To make sure I understand, in the WordPress dashboard under APPEARANCES you should see:
Add New Theme
Atahualpa Theme Options

Are you saying the APPEARANCES section is gone? If so, then Yes I think something they did may has caused this problem and they may have messed up the WordPress code itself.

1) backup your database - If you don't know how to use phpMyAdmin you can use the plugin db-manager
2) since the last thing done was the contact form-7 use an FTP program to access the site and go to wp-contents/plugins and first copy the contact form 7 folder to your local machine, then delete it from the server. This will remove it and now try th ebackend again

if that doesn't fix it, then you may need to overlay a new copy of the wordpress code, but take it one step at a time so....GO BACKUP YOUR DATABASE RIGHT NOW.

Do you have some free time to help me with this? I'm free much of today. I have some other questions I could ask you as well. I have your terms in a private message somewhere but can't figure out how to send you a private message from here. Thanks! ole AT oleaustin.com

It turns out that Ole has logged in as a non administrator, so some sections of the Wordprss backend were not visable. Once she logged in as an admin, ther were there!
