    Website: dipunchurface.com <<if you go to it, you'll see what I'm talking about

    I was following a tutorial and was toying with the functions.php page. I guess I messed up somewhere, because the site completely broke. I think I know what I did wrong, the problem is, it won't let me go back in and fix it. I can't even access the admin panel in wordpress.

    Help?

    If its in functions you can ftp to site includes/functions.php and repair it there. Download and save it first. Then upload repaired file.

    Try:
    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    I've never used the FTP before, but I will try these things. Thanks!

    the same thing happened to me the other day as i was editing the functions.php. i freaked! i was able to get back in by uploading a clean functions.php file from the "original theme" using ftp.

    its easy to use ftp and there are tons of great tutorials on how to do it on youtube. filezilla is a great ftp client.

    good luck
