    "This theme is released under creative commons licence, all links in the footer should remain intact"

    This is what you will see if you go to http://www.resortbailout.info/

    My Website- http://www.resortbailout.info
    My Theme - Top of the World
    WorPress Version- I am not sure, I believe its recent?

    I will begin by saying I have very little experience when it comes to writing script and building website, The problem I am having right now is my Website is down, it cant be accessed even from the admin end. The reason this has happened is because I changed the footer of my website. I wanted the links redirect my viewers back to my original website,my facebook, and my twitter. After doing this I quickly found this was a very very big mistake. Once i did that, I went to see if it worked however I was unable to even access the website I got the message you can read at the top stating I disobeyed the creative licence. Again the theme I am using is Top of the world. And my Blog is located at http://www.resortbailout.info

    Please help me.... This is the blog to my business, and its killing me right now... worked exceptionally hard on this blog, and I will lose weeks of works. I will never do this again, I didn't realize this would happen and now that I know I wont do this again. I tried downloading the theme script and copying and pasting the original footer into what I had done from my buddies ftp, and it didn't fix this. Do you know how to fix this, could you be able to fix this problem?

    what it looks like to me is that there were links setup in the thtme that had ot remain intact and if you deleted them or changed them it would cause this theme to "deactivate" so to speak... govpatel has the best idea here.

    Normally, you shouldn't lose a page or posts BUT that theme is doing EVIL and vicious things. You really want to lose that theme now and go with something else.

    If they intentionally sabotage your website for editing a file, what other bad things do you think they are doing? Treat that theme like a bad infection and lose it fast.
