I am having some difficulties when changing theme in wordpress from the default twenty twelve theme to another.
When I view my blog entires I see that they have become messed up. The font is different, and the alignment of photos is very different than before, making the blog post unreadable.
I have gotten in touch with the maker of the new theme (photocrati) and he had a look at it and said there's no easy fix. I'll just have to go through each post, one by one and fix them. This will require a lot of time, but I would do it if I thought it was the best solution.
The problem is that after modifying a couple of them, so that they render correctly on the new theme, I noticed that they don't stay that way, if I change to another theme within the new package that I got. There are 15 in total (from photocrati). They are all quite similar, they just have subtle changes.
I'd be very grateful if anyone could tell me if it is normal or not to have such issues when changing theme?
I would love to know what precautions should I take when inserting images and formatting text as I write the post? in order to avoid these issues.
Also, as an aside. I have been playing around with a new theme instead which I really like called Lensa. I would love to use it, but I cannot get my blog posts to render neither of the homepage or the blog page I created. I have set it up in Settings->Reading to render on the blog page, but the posts won't appear. If I set it for them to appear on the home page, it still does not work. I have spent a few hours trying to figure it out long with some googling, but no luck so far.
Incidently, I also have the same issue with the blog post formatting with the lensa theme, just as with the photorati theme.
My website is www.thestrayphotographer.com At the time of writing I have the default 2012 theme from wordpress activated, but I suppose I'll be chopping and changing as I try to sort these issues out.
I'd be really very greatful for any advice.
