Can't Log In to WP Admin Backend (4 posts)

    Hey Guys!
    So...a couple days ago I asked a question on here about how to add a sidebar to my magazino theme (since the theme lacks a side bar completely). I was so excited because I actually was able to follow the instructions a user gave me about how to add one. That discussion is here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-add-a-sidebar-4?replies=3#post-3980752

    Now...I have realized that I cannot log in to my admin panel anymore. I usually go here: http://www.photoshopthispic.com/wp-admin/index.php

    Now it is just a blank page. I cleared my cache but that isn't the issue. I could go in to FTP and re-upload my theme files to revert back to how it was before I added the sidebar but is there something else I am missing that I could do without having to revert to that? (Because I really like my side bar ;)

    I am thinking perhaps there is a new directory I have to start going to to access it or something simple like that...if not, I will have to revert to my theme from before I edited it.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    To rule out any theme-specific issue, check if you can login using the default theme:
    - try switching to the unedited default Twenty Twelve theme for a moment using the WP dashboard. If you don't have access to your admin area, you can switch to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using via FTP or SFTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    I am trying to understand your instructions but don't quite get it. I renamed my current theme (magazino) to magazino-old (is that what you wanted me to do?) Now I am not seeing anything. I changed it in my FTP as I do not have access to my dashboard/admin/backend area.

    I caved in and reverted back to my theme before the edits. Now I am sidebarless :'(. Any way I can figure out what went wrong with my theme after I added the sidebar?
