    I accidentally added the wrong code to my theme editor and now my webpage is black and so is the whole dashboard! I mean just a white, blank webpage! It won't let me change it back and I literally can't do anything.... Help me! Is there a way to restart it or something???

    Using FTP - change the name on your specific theme's folder and WP will then switch to the default theme and you should be able to login again:

    Log onto your FTP and open your css files under your theme folder and delete whatever custom css it is that you added.

    This happened to me the other day. It happened right after I attempted to make a change with JetPack.

    I logged onto my FTP and deleted Jetpack out of my plug-ins folder...wahlaah! the site came back.

    I've never seen anything quite like it before. I'm pretty sure JetPack isn't your issue here - it's probably as simple as a "display:none" line you never closed.
