BROKEN WORDPRESS – Theme won’t revert to default theme – BLANK SCREEN
Ok, I tried to use a theme Blue Danube child theme for the Options theme. Well anyways it gave me a blank screen so I deleted the Blue Danube child theme and then the Options theme from the directory which I used to be able to do with 2.6 and it would just revert my WordPress back to the default WP theme. Well.. that did not work this time and now my blog is completely blank. I remember something like this happened to me before and I found here in the forums instructions on how to edit one of the WordPress .php files to manually reset the theme.
I can’t find those instructions now and I’m locked out of my blog. I have a backup in .sql format but I tried to use it in phpadmin and it said it was too big? I can’t get into my admin panel in my blog to do anything so I’m lost and I don’t know what to do. I’ve worked really hard on my website so this is really a tragedy for me. I’d even be willing to export it into another installation or whatever I just need to do something.
I was able to click the back button and I can see that it says “The active theme is broken. Reverting to the default theme”. I tried to click on another theme thumbnail and click activate this theme but that didn’t work either. I gave up and went to sleep. I woke up and my son had closed my browser so now i can’t even click back and view anything on my wordpress admin screen. I’m screwed.
Please help someone..I know there is a WordPress master out there somewhere who can help me.
You can contact me at mygeekheart on gtalk or email@example.com or just reply to this.
I’m using the latest version of WordPress.
My blog is installed on a sub directory Divageekdesigns.com/blog/ I don’t know if that even matters.
Thank you so much,
