After making a lot of little changes to the current custom theme [zeeBizzCard] I'm using, I want to reset it back to it's original style. Being new to WP, I didn't make a backup of the default theme and can not find a quick and easy method of reseting the theme.

Have I missed something, or is there no "reset" options for downloaded themes?

Why not simply download it again? – Johannes Pille Jun 10 '12 at 20:45

If you look into the file includes/admin/theme-admin.php you’ll see that the theme’s options are stored in 'themezee_options'. You can either delete these options per database manager or per a plugin.

If you aren’t familiar with database operations, copy the following code into a PHP file, install it as plugin and activate it once. Then deactivate it immediately.

 * Plugin Name: Reset zeeBizzCard options

register_activation_hook( __FILE__, 'reset_zeebizzcard_options' );

function reset_zeebizzcard_options()
    delete_option( 'themezee_options' );

Your easiest option to 'reset the theme' would be to select another theme in the admin section then delete the zeebizz theme and download it again.

Will that delete the saved options? I am not familiar with this specific theme. – toscho Jun 11 '12 at 9:45
