    What theme was it?

    I assume you've opened an element but not closed it :)

    Can you download Point theme again and just replace the index.php file with the original (via FTP)?

    Were you editing the code of index.php?

    Can you paste the index.php here so we can take a look?

    It isn't letting me view the Editor page now b/c this hotel's internet thinks it's inappropriate content now. UGH. I un activated and reactivated the them. If I delete it and reinstall do you think it would work?

    Download a fresh copy of the theme's folder, extract the index.php file and upload it to wp-content/themes/point using FTP (or whatever file management application your host provides).

    Never done that before, is that the same as exporting all my content?

    No. It has nothing to do with your content - which is stored in your database and not in your theme.

    I wouldn't recommend deleting and reinstalling the the entire theme, in case other edits have been made to it. Even when you replace the index.php with the original copy, keep a backup of your broken version. There might be other amendments someone else did when it was first set up...?

    Use FTP, like Filezilla. Do you have the FTP details?

    Otherwise, try using a different brower to get passed that "unsuitable content" thing :)
