Themes don't change

I have a free account and I'm just experimeting with weebly for the first time though I created my account a few months ago. Anyway, when I choose a theme when I first create my site, it shows no problems. However, when I try and change to a different theme, it doesn't change and stays with my original choice not matter what alternate theme I choose. Does anyone know why I can't change themes? Thanks.

Re: Themes don't change

Hello Boatman! Sorry for the stress. It looks like you're using Unite there now, but you should be able to change themes normally. Is there a particular one you're looking to place on the site? We can give it a try here as well.

Re: Themes don't change

I contacted Weebly support and Jeremey clarified the matter. Evidently, when changing themes, the new themes pictures that's displayed doesn't show on one's site which I find counter intuitive (and so do many others who reported this "issue" which isn't an issue just how the site works. Anyway, issue is resolved.

Re: Themes don't change

Sorry to dig this issue back up, but I'm having the same problem. I can't even preview a theme, it just reloads the first theme I had picked. This is really frustrating since I just paid upfront for 2 years and have spent 45 minutes trying different browers, etc. to resolve this.

Re: Themes don't change

Sorry to hear that, @laurenlundy. Can you try doing this:

 

1. Log into your Weebly account, but don't open the site in the editor

2. In another browser tab, visit this page: http://www.weebly.com/themes

3. Click on the theme you want and click the button to use it

4. You should be presented with an option to pick a site to use it with

5. Choose your site

 

This is a different flow for changing themes, so it might work better for you.
