    To see how a few things were done in the theme preview I thought I’d import the dummy data. It did import the various pages, etc. – but it also complete wiped out all the theme & styling updates I’d made. Seriously?? Is there a way to get these back?? That option says nothing about erasing all theme updates.

    Hi,

    when importing dummy data you overwrite all your theme settings by the new ones imported. Sadly, there’s no going back after this. Usually people import dummy content before they start off. Your other database info should still be there though.

    Thanks for the quick reply Chris. It didn’t look like there was any recovery option but thought I’d ask anyway. I do think it would be a good idea to put a warning of some kind that importing the dummy data (which says only pages, post, etc.) that doing so will overwrite any theme updates, style changes, etc. that have been made. Had I known that, I would have made note of the various changes I’d made, such as color changes, CSS, etc. so I could reapply them.

    I do want to say that in spite of this, I am extremely impressed with the theme & its flexibility, as well as the fantastic support that you are providing. I’m really glad that I decided to purchase Abundance.
