[resolved] Why does my blog keep reverting back to default theme? (3 posts)

    I have tried different themes, uploaded them in wp-content/themes and activated them as instructed. They work for a short period of time and then revert back to the default theme. This usually happens at least once a day. Any ideas??

    This is usually a sign of a flaky server. When the active theme is not found or not accessible by WordPress, it switches back to the default theme. Any number of server problems can cause that to happen.

    Short answer: Put your theme in the default folder. Then it can't revert to anything but itself.
