[Resolved] Cannot access my wp-admin panel or my website (HTTP 500)

  • Ok so I’m a beginner and still trying to figure some things out. Since yesterday I have been unable to access my wp-admin panel or my website. I get an error: HTTP 500.

    [ Code moderated. For more than 10 lines of code please use pastebin.com instead. ]

    I recently tried to change some code in my raindrops/functions.php to remove this information from my site: “This entry was posted in xxxxxx Bookmarks the permalink” Info from a previous form suggested I follow these steps:
    comment out this function:
    When I updated I couldn’t access my page anymore. Please help ASAP!

    I also need to know how to remove this information from my site:

    Thank you!

    I recently tried to change some code in my raindrops/functions.php

    To get your WordPress back, undo what you’ve done. The easiest way to do that is to simply delete the themes/raindrops directory. This will lose your changes but that not a bad thing right now. 😉

    To delete that one directory, use FTP or whatever file management tools your host has provided you. Make sure you only delete the one raindrops directory.

    That should switch you to the Twenty Eleven theme and you should be able to get back into your blog.

    If you want to work on the Raindrops theme, do not edit the theme files like that. Instead download a fresh copy and work on a child theme instead.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/raindrops

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    You can make your edits to the child theme and (hopefully) not get locked out again.

    As the the sidebar items, once you place your own widgets, the default ones will go away.

    PS. Once you’re done, upgrade to 3.3.2 when you get the chance. Security related upgrades should always be performed.

    Thanks Jan. So that’s what I’ll do when I long into my admin panel. But the first problem is, I can’t even long into my admin panel. When I type in http://www.infohubgh.com/wp-admin into the url to access the admin panel, I get a HTTP 500 Internal Service Error message. So I can’t even enter my username and password to begin with. The error occurs when I try to view the actual site (www.infohubgh.com).

    Any thoughts on what to do?

    Yes, I know, that’s what happens with a HTTP 500 error. Which is why I wrote:

    To delete that one directory, use FTP or whatever file management tools your host has provided you. Make sure you only delete the one raindrops directory.

    As you know and made clear, your WordPress dashboard is inaccessible. So you have to use FTP or whatever file management tools your host has provided you.

    That’s done outside of WordPress, just using basic file management on your host. If you can use FTP, if not contact your host and ask them how you can delete that one raindrops directory.

    Not the WordPress admin area but your Internet Service Providers Control Panel!

    If it was only the functions.php file you changed, then as Jan has said FTP or Wesite > Control Panel > File Manager >

    Just upload and replace the functions.php file from a fresh theme download, you should not need to delete the folder, unless the code changes were in more than the single file.

    Create and use a child theme, also look at setting up a second or local WordPres for changes and testing.

    I also need to know how to remove this information from my site:

    This is just the defaults for the widget area, just add a widget to the sidebar Appearance > Widgets and they will dissappear!

    Thank you both for clarifying! I had to download core FTP so I could do that. Learned a lot because I didn’t realize how useful it was.
    And thanks, David, for pointing out the issue with the widgets.

    One other question though. Under each post I make it shows on the website which category the post was made to, the tags and “Bookmark the permalink. For example:
    This entry was posted in Arts and Culture, Family Events and tagged Afua Sutherlands Childrens Park, circus, Il Florilegio, tigo. Bookmark the permalink. Edit

    Is there any way to get rid of that?

    Rather than editing code just hide the element in the style.css at the end add this:

    .entry-utility .entry-meta {
       display: none;
    }

    HTH

    David

    Thanks for the help David. Didn’t work though so any other thoughts would be appreciated.

    This is tested and works!

    To hide it sitewide on the search, category, archive and single pages

    .entry-meta {
       display: none;
    }

    To hide it just on on the single page view, but still show it in the lists.

    .single .entry-meta {
       display: none;
    }

    Please mark this as resoved if this works, and start a new topic for any other questions.

    Thanks a lot David. It worked!
