    Hello everyone,

    Been busy with a great Wordpress Thesis Skin (Marketers Delight), but when i played with the CSS, i completely f*cked it up, and i can't reset it anymore.

    I deleted Thesis in complete, but when i wanted to set it back, also my skin was back.
    Where does WordPress store this?

    I want to completely remove my Thesis skin and upload it again.

    Hope somebody can help me,
    Thanks!

    If you're using cache plugin, don;t forget to delete your cached file.

    Deactivate the thesis theme, and then delete the theme file completely from Appearance --> themes
    if you also want to delete the Thesis core framework file, find the thesis directory (should be named as "thesis") under your root or wp-content directory and then delete it, you can log in to your FTP / cPanel file manager to do so.
    and the re-upload your thesis framework n theme

    @ Echizen: Thanks for your response :) I tried that, but didn't work. When i upload, it automatically restores the info. I don't use a cache plugin. It's so weird.

    @ innozemec: Also thanks for your response. I tried looking in the mysql, but i see a list of all my WP sites and none of them has a 'good' name, if you know what i mean (example: wp_02). Also MySQL is very new to me, so maybe i'm looking somewhere wrong, but can't find anything though.

    when it restores back automatically, then for sure it reads the settings from the mysql database..

    it seems you use multisite, right? Then you need to find the ID of your blog, then find the mysql table: wp_ID_options
    and there run a query like: SELECT * from wp_ID_options where option_name like '%thesis%'

    Well, i really don't use multisite. I have something around 20 domains with Wordpress installed on, but these are completely different sites.
    Do you know how i can find the id of my blog?

    Edit: I have the ID, but can't find wp_ID_options.

    when you are not using multisite, then go to the proper database for you blog and look in the "wp_options" table
    if you don't know the exact database for your blog, look in the wp-config.php file

    I have found it, and i deleted the "wp_thesis_backup". But when i do, it comes back straight i'm uploading the theme. And then when i activated, the skin i'm using is activated. It's weird.

    Edit: Yes! Got it! Deleted the files in the databases! Thanks!

    In mysql, it's usually the following: your_table_prefix_here_thesis_backups
