[resolved] Amended function.php and now cannot access WP-Admin (4 posts)

    Hello,

    I tried adding a piece of additional code to function.php - from http://pinakibisi.wordpress.com/2013/06/29/woo-commrece-remove-tab-from-product-page/.

    The code didnt deliver the results I was anticipating, so I subsequently deleted it.

    I cannot now access WP-admin, I just get a blank white screen. A Little searching online shows that I have most likely corrupted function.php somehow, but most recommendations are to use FTP to fix.

    I've installed FileZilla, but it wont connect. Do I have to have enabled FTP on the WP-admin settings first, before I can FTP to the server?

    Is there any other way to fix this access issue to WP-admin?

    Please help!!!

    Thanks

    It has to connect, unless you don't have proper credentials.
    Have you discussed this with your hosting provider?

    FTP client is independent of the WP-admin

    Thanks Tara. :)

    I enabled FTP via my hosting company and followed instructions to configure it.

    I've removed the errant bit of code and reloaded the theme and I'm back in again! Yay!
