[resolved] Broken Theme (5 posts)

    I just upgraded to 3.4 and it broke my theme (Back My Book). I can see the main page, but when I try to login to WP Admin I get an error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Custom_Image_Header in /wp-admin/custom-header.php on line 16

    I have the default themes like 2010 and 2011 installed and I've been keeping them updated. Is there a way to change the theme by editing a file somewhere so I can bypass this error to get back into my wordpress? Or is the entire site hosed and does it need to be reinstalled after the offending theme is deleted?

    Using FTP with FileZilla or other FTP tool, or your host provided file manager, rename the theme folder to old-theme...make sure an unedited WP default theme is also in 'wp-content/themes' folder prior to loading site (review using a .maintenance file during manual updates)

    I have the same issue and did a rollback. I have sent the author an email but he is not answering.

    This explanation does not show how to use Back my Book
