Thanks to an incompetent developer on People Per Hour my site is broken.
I paid to have the plugins updated and ended up having to update the Wordpress Jetpack plugin myself. I lost my Jetpack sidebar after an update which he could not fix because. It probably needs to be disconnected and reconnected (according to support at Jetpack).
However in an attempt to trouble shoot, I switched themes to see if the sidebar would reappear in another theme. It didn't. The problem is instead of just viewing other themes I activated one instead, but when I tried to go back to the current theme (I clicked on "activate the original theme"), this current theme is now broken. Now I have odd menus down the left side of the home page, the blog link (in the main menu) goes to a page that gives a fatal exception warning and I have giant oversized orange rss images and lots of other css issues.
From previous experience I am optimistic that it is a fairly straightforward issue and won't requite lots of reworking of css and changing image sizes etc.
