Many of us have considered it.
Adding a fresh look to a membership site by installing a new theme.
But changing themes can sometimes lead to unexpected results. New design elements may alter the preferred page layout or the font on the site may seem to change on its own.
What was thought to be a two minute task can turn into an afternoon of trouble shooting.
What are the differences between the original theme and the new theme that are causing the problems?
Of course, there could be other settings or plugins at play as well. Different themes react to these different settings and plugins… differently.
