    I have a theme that has not been updated in two years. I need to replace it. Don't I have to choose a theme with the SAME number of columns for the CONTENT to transfer? I don't see any reference to this particular issue in any of the tutorials on line. My site is

    http://www.practicalphilosophy.net

    3 column "State of Mind" theme.

    I am attracted to the RUSTIC theme, but it only has two columns. I can't imagine that I can install this theme without a lot of work.

    Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you.

    You don’t need to choose a theme with the same layout. You current theme has 2 sidebars and 1 content column. You can change to a 2 column theme (1 content, 1 sidebar) without any issues, however you may need to set up the items your sidebar again.

    You can also use the theme preview function in WordPress to see how your site will look with the new theme before switching.

    Thank you! I'll try that. I had a hunch that would be the answer.
