Overwriting Theme

My theme is presently running very slowly. In advance of this solution - I have switched off all the plugins and the problem still occurs. If I wanted to reinstall the Them - is it OK to simply overwrite the existing theme? Or should I carry out a clean install?

    I’m contemplating doing the same. I’m running directory press with WP and have already downloaded and installed the patch files but am having problems with a white screen of death whenever someone tries to create a new listing.

    My only concern is overwriting the existing listings, posts, pages and images.

    If I download the latest version – (my DP admin is not showing an update as being available, but this is later than what I have installed now) and then upload it won’t it overwrite the existing thumbs folder containing all of the images?

    Yes it will, save the thumbs folder. Listings, posts, pages will be ok.

    But you should back-up everything just in case 😯
