  1. Can I change my WordPress theme even though I've already created content. I have about 10 blog posts already …..will the blog posts be deleted if i change my WP theme?

  2. Thank you, that was helpful. However, I think you should be more specific that not EVERYBODY has to upload the theme from their own computer (although correct me if I am wrong there) because I was able to do it without downloading or uploading anything myself and I think for many people that is the case if they were just thinking of using a theme that they are not buying outside of WordPresss (I would recommend taking 5 seconds more to explain that — make it a very "for Dummies" guide)

  3. Can you tell me how to undo / delete a background border on WP 2016? Being a newby at this, I put on an image this morning, not knowing what I was doing, and it messed up the solid pixel border that I should have around my website. As of right now, it looks like a 2015 version with it just being clear…but it would look much better with a solid pixel border like it should have.
