    This has happened twice to me. I renamed the theme in style.css and the entire theme reset itself and created an arbitrary theme style (green, really?). All the data in the theme was lost–ie, colors, customized functionality, etc.

    I changed the name back to choices and everything was restored. Interesting. Maybe this will help someone in the future.


    Hi Burnt Pixel,

    WordPress uses the name set in style.css to create the themes options entry and everything associated with that theme. So yes, when you change the name there it will think its an entirely new theme.
