Lost Organic rankings after website redesign

The site is 2 years old, has a PR of 2 and was ranking well for a range of keywords/phrases.  The new website was developed based on the wordpress. The site has had a new design which went live on the 25.10.09 
It is since then we have lost ALL of our good rankings, but we are still listed because we can be found by searching for our domain name.  Although the meta tags etc have changed, uploaded sitemap, domain confirmation with www and without but situation ramain,so I really am puzzled by this sudden fall.  Can anyone please advise.

I will suggest that you wait for sometime to see your site's ranking come back again. If you change the design or meta tags of a site, then the site may [or may not] drop in SERPs. It depends on site's overall ranking. If a site has strong overall ranking [some good backlinks point to that site and has strong PR], then making changes in the site may not result in ranking drop.

I think you should wait for sometime. The ranking may come back anytime.
