    Yesterday I made some changes (apparently bad ones) to a WP blog at

    http://totallykimleigh.com/news
    and now I can't get to

    http://totallykimleigh.com/news/wp-admin
    and

    http://totallykimleigh.com/news/wp-login
    doesn't do anything. It looks like I somehow assigned a Category to be the main page. Unsure and don't know what to do. Can anyone help?

    I am unsure of the version but it was created well over a year ago.

  2. First, don't use <li> outside of the <ul> tags :)

    What did you change?

    OK.

    Thanks for following up.

    I used a theme interface to "not show the Home" page in the main menu. And I think I may have tried to assign the default (new "home") page to a category (#4 maybe) in the section where you can change the Reading Settings section (I think). It was in an older version of WP and I don't think that area exists anymore...

  4. Yeah, the home URL looks like it was changed.

    http://totallykimleigh.com/news/wp-login.php looks horrible, but it may get you in.

    That does not get me in. Thanks though.

  6. Well. Dang. I would TRY, since this is a theme error, deleting the theme folder. In wp-content/themes/ you should have a folder for this theme as well as /twentyeleven/ LEAVE twentyeleven alone. Delete the theme folder you're using. That should force WP to switch back to the default theme.
