how do i switch themes and start completely over?

  • Answered

i'm new to wordpress.

i've been fiddling with a theme i purchased several months ago. i've made lots of custom changes to CSS, etc. I've since come to want a different theme.

i installed the new theme and it looks wrong. it seems to my WP uneducated mind that my previous customization is interefering.

how can i get rid of all the customization and start from scratch? i'm ok if i lose all of my previous pages and posts. it won't take long to recreate the content in the new theme. but i want to eliminate everything that could be interfering.

please tell me how i can basically start from scratch, then install the new theme and start customizing that them and creating content.

Hello, Thank you for your question about starting over in WordPress. The easiest way to restart your site completely is to re-install WordPress with Softaculous, and make sure you have the "Overwrite" box checked. Let us know if you have any problems! Best, Christopher M.
