I’m @hollie on micro.blog, and I just started using my site again. I explored plug-ins first thing, and found the Arabica theme, and hit “install”. And now there seems to be no way to get the default theme back.
I can’t uninstall it, there’s no uninstall button like the other apps.
If I go to Design, it seems to be telling me there is no custom design while simultaneously showing the Arabica theme, so I’m not sure what to do with that.
If I select “Edit custom themes,” there is nothing there to edit.
Sidenote: I’ve noticed that virtually everyone doing a micro.blog seems to be a tech professional in some capacity - I am emphatically not. I coded HTML in the mid-90s but then moved on to other things, mostly involving yarn and paint. Being adjacent to my software engineer husband isn’t useful here; he works on very different things, so all of this is Greek to me. Like I don’t know what a Hugo engine is, or what a blogging engine is, and I don’t know most of the terms I see in the Help section.
But I really love the format of the micro.blog and I’ve been reading about Indie Web stuff and think it’s super cool, so I’d like to learn. But please forgive the inevitably incredibly dumb questions.
So I saw a help file that seemed to suggest (I don’t know what it was really saying) that I could create a new design and that would somehow make the default one come back? I could have been misreading. Like I said: Greek. So I tried doing that, I created a new theme, named it, and chose that in my Design page. But the design is still Arabica.
I really want Arabica to go away. Next steps?
