Blank page when changing themees

  • I recently created my blog: http://blog.sniperholix.com/ and everything was going find until I was trying out the themes and when changed to one, dashboard just went to a blank page as well as my blog. I have since been unable login or view my blog, I only get the same blank page when I type the URL. How do i get back my blog? Can I reset it?….I don’t mind as I had only now begun customizing it.

    Use FTP to delete the theme that caused the blank page, and then as long as you have the default WP theme installed, you should be able to log back in.

    Tried but it did not work. I am getting the login screen but can’t login and when I request my password sent to email I get this error: “The e-mail could not be sent.Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function…”

    You can start over, and unless you deleted your database, all your content is still there, if you had much, as you say. Searching in the forums for other people who have been locked out and had trouble with changing the password by email shows that some reinstall WP. So that’s an option: reupload WP and start over. Just watch out for the theme that bonked in the first place.


    It seems that your hosting service provider has blocked the mail() function due to server security but you can reset password from database. For that refer this article:


    For the email reset the password you can use these plugins:


    For that theme level issue, disable all the plugins and enable it ony by one to find out the culprit.

    He can’t even login to install a new plugin, much less send email from WP from a new plugin.

    Changing the password via PHPMyAdmin method is possible; PHPMyAdmin might already be installed by your host. The emergency reset script on that link above is also possible; I’ve never used it.
