    I attempted to change the text color in the css code and it seems that my columns are gone.I am using the celestial aura theme and my site is http://littlehandprints.net. I have also tried to go in and delete the celestial aura theme and reinstall it, but when I went to wp-content/themes I did not see any file that said celestial aura and I can not find it anywhere. Does anyone have the default code to celestial aura or have any advice on how to fix my site? Thanks!

    You somehow dumped a bunch of code in the top part of your stylesheet. There's a link at the bottom of your page that goes to the theme's site; get a fresh copy and upload it.

    Something has been accidentally moved around while editing the style sheet. It has to start with
    Theme Name: Celestial Aura
    and the other info by the author, while it starts with .pinglist and other declarations that were originally at the end of the sheet. When I moved those down, the colums appeared again.

    The theme folder must be there, I was able to view the stylesheet. If this is the only thing you tried to edit, you only need to upload a fresh copy of style.css

    Odd that you can't see the celestial-aura folder, in the themes directory. Try to switch back to the default theme for troubleshooting.

    @songdogtech - sorry for the double, I didn't realize it had been answered already, while I was looking for the problem :-)

    Thank you both...I got rid of the code at the top of the style sheet and put it in its proper place now it is back to normal. If I were to upload a fresh copy of style.css, how would i do that?

    @buddha: that's fine; "help collisions" happen a lot around here.....

    @littlehandprints: if the blog looks/works OK now, no need to get a new copy of the stylesheet. If you find you need to later on, download a copy of the theme with ftp to your PC and then upload just style.css to wp-content/themes/celestial-aura/
