Okay, I have a couple of non-weaver themes idownloaded to my dashboard. I want to test drive them. So far I have not activated them until I here I can do this.
If I activate one of them and try a test page or two will this affect the Weaver site when I return to it. I just want to check them out. .Actually
they look yummy and make my site look boring. Then again I got a link showing a slide show as to what others have done with Weaver II.
I just want to make sure that when I return to Weaver, my pages and set up will still exist. I believe it just creates another site (edit:I meant folders) on my hosting network.
Please tell me it is so. I know that this is a Wordpress forum question but their support is non-existent.
I am hoping I can do this and then revert back to the Weaver program and find it still working.
I did back all my data up, both from your file manager and my own dashboard.

Upon activating a theme, your existing content will not be modified other than activating the theme itself. You may certainly activate the theme without any adverse effects.

Thank you, the support here is great. Same with the weaver site people. I may try this, but another option being a new domain.I guess I am spooked after dealing with a quirky site problem which I just fixed by MYSELF!!!! -- sadly it might have been one of three changes I made. One includes deleting some plug ins and removing one widget.
Follow up! In this vein the wordpress upgrade made some working things quirky. I would ask this question (and no - I cannot even log in or get a new id with wordpress forums) -- after the install it was suggested that I download another ???option pack to make it work better, only to add that this plug in has not been verified to work in this version. ???. Anybody have any experience with this wordpress upgrade accessory download?

Unfortunately, I have not heard any reports of usage of Weaver recently. I recommend making a backup of your site first, then attempting the additional download.
