    Help - I did something I shouldn't have done...
    My site is based on Pilot Fish. Not knowing bettter I edited the style.css, home.php, footer and others to adapt the site to my needs.
    So I created a child theme -quite easily done - and lost some of my changes to the header and sidebar-home.php. Then deleted the child theme and ->big mess.
    Question: if I re-activate the Pilot Fish theme from the dash board, will it install the very original of Pilot Fish as per the developer and lose all my changes or will it reactivate the version with my changes?

    my site http://www.petrafritzmann-hypnobirthing.de/

    Can anyone help?

    If you deleted the child theme, that should not have affected the parent theme - and you should be able to reactivate it. Reactivating it won't install a new copy of it, so your changes should be there.

    :))))) deleting the child theme and reactivating the original worked!
    Now I only need to solve my other thread about adding a logo to the header and I am happy.
