Update 29 Oct 2012: Thesis 2.0.1 includes a more extensive skin manager (located via the Manager tab in the Skin Editor), which allows you to backup skin states and reset a skin to its default settings, so you shouldn’t need the below instructions. They should still work if you follow them though.
Hey, so you’ve just installed Thesis 2.0 and you’re trying to figure out what is going on and completely messed up the classic skin? You’re not alone!
This is my recommendation for resetting the classic skin to its default. DIYthemes might release an official method soon, but until then, this should work if your skin files are still in tact.
- Switch to the Thesis Blank skin
- find custom.php in wp-content/thesis/skins/thesis-blank/ (you will need FTP, or your host’s file editor for this) and insert the following code:
delete_option( 'thesis_classic_css_custom' ); delete_option( 'thesis_classic_css' ); delete_option( 'thesis_classic_vars' ); delete_option( 'thesis_classic_snippets' ); delete_option( 'thesis_classic_packages' ); delete_option( 'thesis_classic_templates' ); delete_option( 'thesis_classic_boxes' ); update_option( 'thesis_raw_css','' );
- Reload your home page (it should be blank unless you’ve played with adding HTML to the blank skin)
- Reactivate the Thesis Classic skin
- Save and Compile CSS in the skin editor
- Delete the code from step 2.
This deletes the classic skin related data from the database, so that when you reactivate the Classic Skin it loads its defaults back into the database.
