Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Atahualpa theme not displaying

When I checked the website this morning, www.wes-wilson.com, I noticed that my Atahualpa theme is not displaying. I've checked in wp-admin and it is still set to use the Atahualpa theme. I've checked in IE7, Firefox, and on multiple computers. I was working on the site quite a bit last night, but all was well when i finally called it quits. Is this something with the theme or should I be checking with my service provider?

I appreciate the help, sorry if it's a silly question.

I figured out what was wrong. I'll post it here in case it's helpful to anyone else at some point.

First of all, I wasn't very clear in my question. My Atahualpa theme was not displaying, instead it was showing the boring default theme. I did some googling (hard core research, y'know) and found that others have had this problem in Wordpress 2.7. All you need to do is go into admin and manually select some other theme (seems counter-productive, doesn't it?). Then go back and select the theme you want. That fixed me up good as new.

I found my answers

Well, this morning I noticed that it did it again. The website reset to the default theme. A search on Wordpress.org support turned up this thread on the subject: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/77582?replies=23

I'll continue my search for an answer. If anyone has any insights, I would appreciate hearing them.

According to that thread it might be related to the hosting setup. Someone suggested to rename the default theme's directory from "default" to something else, and rename your theme to "default", i.e. "atahualpa" to "default"

Thanks Flynn. I read that recommendation to rename the theme folders in the thread but wasn't sure if it was a wise idea or not. Since you also point to this as a possible solution, I suppose I'll give it a shot. If it breaks, all I have to do is rename the folders in any case. So it's manageable.

Thanks for the help!
