I am now ready to upgrade my site as above. If I run the WP export to an XML file, then update the theme, then re-import the XML file, will this bring my site back to its original state (now updated)? I have not done major changes – using the quickstart I have just added my own content to the various pages, added pics, map, contact info – that sort of thing.
I want to have the blog feature which came out in 1.0.4, but don’t want to have to re-build all of my content. Any help is appreciated – I don’t see an instruction set anywhere, hence the post.

Hello Joel !
To update DW Page version 1.0.5, You can download the theme.zip package, paste into your folder theme. you will not lose all the content of your site.
If you don’t want to lose all changes that you customized, before updating the latest version, please mark and copy all files that you edited, then implement to update the version 1.0.5. After finishing, you add all codes that you customized in the old files to your updated theme.
Hope this helps !

I followed your instructions and the entire site has been changed – I only used the WP interface to build it, did not customize any files other than a logo (which I can figure out) but everything seems to be gone, so not so easy as you suggest, it would seem. The content is all in the WP-ADMIN screens, but the entire site has changed, will have to rebuild from the ground up, unfortunately – I did do a backup but that is not restoring properly either with the new theme
