In wordpress, I must reinstall a corrected theme. It is the same theme, just corrections were made. The new download is ready to load.

Wordpress tells me I already have the theme.

How is this done?

Hi Chiefcliff,

Great question on removing and reinstalling a theme in WordPress. From your WordPress dashboard, go to Appearance > Themes so you can manage your themes. Find the theme you wish to remove, click the "Delete" link and click the OK button when the pop up appears telling you that you are about to delete the theme. Now you can reinstall your theme.

Please let us know if you have any questions or need any additional assistance.
