It’s through nothing I did and other than contact my webhost I’m at a loss as to how to fix it.
So here’s hoping Dreamhost can figure it out before I go crazy from the bland derivativeness and do something to break it further.
UPDATE (2:32 p.m.): Well, my original theme is back. Yay. Somehow, unbeknownst to myself nor my webhosters it got deactivated so after much fretting, I clicked the “activate” link and everything seems back to how it once was. I hope.
