    Hi,

    I recently added buddypress to my wordpress site hosted at http://www.indigenoushealth.org/ I was experimenting with various buddypress themes and tried uploading maximus Now I get a white screen or a fatal error on the screen...

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare bp_dtheme_ajax_querystring() (previously declared in /home/indigen2/public_html/wp/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/ajax.php:20) in /home/indigen2/public_html/wp/wp-content/themes/maximus-buddypress/_inc/ajax.php on line 63

    ...and I cant get access to the admin page to change the theme back.

    Really need some help! Thanks

    Si

    Try renaming the wp-content/themes/maximus-buddypress folder via FTP.

    Thanks, but I'm not really following (new to wordpress) - what should I rename it to?

    Doesn't really matter. Try maximus-buddypress-old

    No joy. Not sure whats going on really. Now I seem to get just a white blank page rather than the fatal error message. Anyone any other suggestions anyone?

    Try renaming the wp-content/plugins/buddypress folder to deactivate the plugin temporarily and get you back into your site. Again, it doesn't matter what you call the folder for now.
