    Hi All,

    N00b question here - I just got notice that the theme I am using has a newer version. If I install the newer one I will have to reset all my widgets and such?

    Thanks!

    Actually this isn't a Noob question, it depends on the theme, since the theme is just upgrading to a newer version, im sure the Developers, developed the upgraded theme so that it will not mess with widgets & widget names. but in any case, if you were to instal a different theme the widgets would be in different areas, and have different content in them... based on their names...

    cool - most of the widgets im referring to are text fields that i filled in w/ html (sign up box for a newsletter, our organizations mailing address, etc)...best to copy these into a text field and then re-enter after upgrade?
