A few years back, I purchased a premium WordPress theme called Arcane thinking I would be able to use it perpetually. It still says in fine print on the bottom right “Never Expires”.
A few hours ago, I tried out some of the free themes offered here on WordPress believing I could always go back to my old theme in case I don’t like any of them. But when I started looking for my old premium theme, I couldn’t locate it.
After an hour of searching I finally found out why: the theme had been retired.
I’ve posted on this blog with the old theme just last month and everything functioned fine. I wish there had been a warning sign that popped up saying I won’t be able to use my retired theme after I change it to a new one. Or even an email! I would have read that email.
I’ve no choice now than to work with a smaller free theme selection here on WordPress. Admittedly, I tried signing up to blogger again but their themes haven’t changed in the decade since I last used it!
Nevermind. I’ll tough it up with this one.
