A different theme reversion problem
Okay, it’s time to solve this problem once and for all. It’s been happening for a few months now. Multiple upgrades have not solved it. I have not encountered any other instances of the problem in the forum. My problem is that every few weeks my theme keeps reverting to the default theme (actually the theme that comes with WordPress called “classic”). Now, the thing that makes this different than the many other similar posts in this forum is that WordPress is not switching my theme from a custom theme back to the default theme. I have edited and customized the default theme file and my code has been wiped out and the code for the default theme prevails. That’s right, the actual files are being modified. Could it be a malicious act? I tend to doubt it because not many people read my blog (although I do get lots of spam comments) and none of the content has been tampered with. If so, shouldn’t WordPress be secure enough to prevent such a thing? Or could there be a file on which I have set permissions incorrectly? Is there any other explanation to how a file on my secure server is being replaced periodically? This is getting very frustrating and may result in switching to a different blog platform…
