    Hello ...

    I'm pretty new to WordPress and have done something horrible to my site and really need some help. I installed one of those plug-ins that allow you to modify style with a single click. It created a child theme for that page, but the next time I tried to load the page I had modified, I got this message:

    Warning: require_once(/home/jmm7574/public_html/wp-content/themes/cheerapp-version-2/theme-options/options-framework.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/jmm7574/public_html/wp-content/themes/cheerapp/functions.php on line 17
    
    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/jmm7574/public_html/wp-content/themes/cheerapp-version-2/theme-options/options-framework.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/jmm7574/public_html/wp-content/themes/cheerapp/functions.php on line 17

    It seemed as if it was trying to go to this "Cheerapp version 2" that didn't exist. So, under themes, this one-click plugin had created a new theme called "Cheerapp version 2". In hopes of getting everything on the same page, I activated it and now I'm getting the same error whenever I try to open any page, including the wp-admin page.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    You can delete the theme directory using ftp from /wp-content/themes so WordPress goes back to the default theme. And then start fixing the problem afterwards.

    OK, did that. Thank you.

    Where should I go from there? How can I change my theme back to the way it was before this second version was created?
