    Themes overlapping (Please help)

    I have a website that I just started.

    I started exploring the site and found themes online and added them.

    I noticed that once I changed the theme, some part of the old them would still be on there and no the site, is full of different themes and looks horrible.

    How can I fix this? How this this happen? and How can I prevent this from happening again, PLEASE HELP!!!

    Just so we can see the code, what's your site? A picture doesn't tell us all that much...the answer is in the code.

    Actually, no...what I want is the URL for the site. Normally, we have rules against link dropping, but this isn't link dropping in this case because it's necessary to solve a problem.

    You probably don't want to know what I think, but I'll tell you anyway.

    This is exactly the reason I never,ever work with "themes" under any circumstances. The second you try to do anything custom to them, they break, and it's very difficult to get them back the way they were unless you work on them the way a surgeon would. Otherwise, things get totally destroyed.

    What I would suggest, and I'll tell you upfront that it's going to suck, is to rebuild this from scratch. If you need to use one theme, use one theme, but don't mix two together. There is absolutely no way to get this mess untangled otherwise. You'll spend days trying to figure out what broke where in this case.

    TheGame is right - combining code from two themes from (probably) different sources, and most likely different authors, will get you into trouble.

    If all you did was to load the themes from your dashboard, then go into your site via FTP and remove all but the default theme. See if that works.

    As a last resort, save your database delete the site, and do a clean install.
