When I first started using Kuler, I didn't get that I needed
to put descriptive words in the tags field. So, after seeing many
themes with tag words and realizing that the tags are searchable
(duh), I decided to go back to some of my older themes and add tags
to them and resave them. Since doing that, I have had some of my
themes disappear from their ranking status. The download count and
rating seems to still be associated with the theme, but the theme
is no longer ranked. I was wondering, what might cause this, and is
there any way it can be fixed?
Adding tags to your themes should be fine, and they will
maintain their "kuler qualities" such as ratings, etc. What
probably happened is when you added tags you hit Save and made them
private, instead of Publish to keep them public. I suggest going
back in and re-Publishing them.
However, I advise against changing colors, even the order of
the same colors, if you don't want to have the theme considered a
new one and "reset."
