    I had someone upload a new theme for my site http://www.ilovethislook.com
    Now I am trying to access my site thru http://www.ilovethislook.com/wp-admin
    when I do this i get to the "dashboard" but it has none of my posts, plugins, widgets ect. I don't know if my site was hacked,or he didn't copy something correctly? I spoke to my hosting domains just for you, who said this was an issue to take up with wordpress. Please HElp!!

    Try:
    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme's folder in 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 have no idea how to do either of the above. I'm in my hosting FTP file i see the different themes but am a little hesitant to "do something wrong" so I haven't renamed the files... any other suggestions?

    No one suggested that you try renaming files. Just that you rename some folders.

    No - rename your current theme's folder by adding "-old" to the end of the folder name

    i did. I went to themes then rename and chose "the style" then added "-old" to the end of it and hit "OK" nothing changed on the site or the admin panel.

    No! If you have access to Appearance -> Themes, just switch to the Twenty Eleven theme.

    Then you have to change the name of the current theme's folder using FTP.
