If I get a new theme, will I have to re-do all of my settings?

    Will all of my widgets/pages disappear? Am I going to have to spend all night doing it all over again?

    The blog I need help with is sarahtylerdeen.wordpress.com.

    In some cases, the widgets will not appear in the sidebar when you switch themes, but they are saved and put into the “inactive” widget area down below the “available widgets” area at appearance > widgets, so it is just a matter of dragging them back up and into the sidebar(s) and arranging them as needed.

    One thing I always recommend for any custom widgets (text widgets) is to copy out all the code from those widgets and save them in a plain text file on your computer. That way if something were to happen, you have a copy of everything.
