    Hi, I uploaded the Lunated theme to see what it would look like. Now I can't log in anymore to edit my blog. I'm a newby so I'm sorry for being so dumb.

    FTP into your site and delete the wp-content/themes/lunated theme folder.

    Thanks. I removed the theme folder using Plesk. Now all I'm getting when I open the blog is a white screen!

    To have a theme show, you must a least have one theme installed. Did you delete WP classic and default themes ? If not, login to your admin, go to appearance and select one of these themes. How are you accessing the admin pages ?

    The problem is: I don't know how to access the admin pages! I started the blog with the default theme and added some content. Then I tried the Lunated theme and did some more editing. No problem while I was still logged in as admin.
    Later when I started the blog again (thethunderbirds.nl) it showed up alright in the browser. However, I couldn't find a login button or anything like that and I had no idea how to log in as admin. So I posted here.
    Then I followed esmi's suggestion, but now I don't see anything at all, just a white page...

    If your URL is different from wordpress directory

    http://yourURLr.com/WPdirectory/wp-admin

    If you URL is the same as WordPress directory

    http://yourURL.com/wp-admin

    I am no acquainted with Lunated theme, but it probable does not have a Login link. Which is fine as long as you know how to access your login page. 99% sure you can put your Lunated theme back in themes.
