    Hi, I was editing the html code and I must've made a massive blunder because my site has now disappeared. I'm not even sure what I changed. It is a blank page if you visit it jfgtoons.com
    I have no idea how to undo what I did as I can't even log on to the admin page. I need desperate help with this. Thanks.

    You will need to go into your site thru FTP or the hosts admin panel (usually C-Panel). You then need to navigate to ??\wp-content\themes.
    Rename your comicpress folder to comicpress-bad. This will make WordPress use the default theme (I hope you didn't remove it).
    Let us know if that works.

    I can't get into the editor. If I try it says "the requested theme does not exist". Even if I could, I am not sure what I would change to revert the site to the way it was. What is it recommended that I do?

    Okay now the site is displaying the default WordPress theme (as you may have already noticed) but I cannot get comicpress 4.0 back on.

    Re-install the theme. Leave the old directory named comicpress-bad.
    You will lose any customization you may have already made but you still have the files as reference for re-applying them.

    Also, whenever you modify PHP files you should be using a child theme.

    Okay, I just deleted the old comicpress and downloaded it anew and reinstalled it and everything is back to normal. Thanks for the initial suggestion :]
