Support » Fixing WordPress » Change theme manually

  • Hello
    I am running an old version of WordPress (2.5) and recently bought a theme I wanted to use. I knew I had to upgrade the wordpress to 2.9.2 before doing it, but I accidently chose the new theme when I thought I was going to edit it after having logged on. Now I keep getting this error and can’t do anything:
    Fatal error: Class bm_widget_popularposts: Cannot inherit from undefined class wp_widget in /wp-content/themes/mimbopro/scripts/bm_widgetClasses.php on line 5

    Is there any way manually I can change the theme back to the previous by editing any files on my server?

  • Hi,

    You can either remove the problamatic theme from wordpress theme folder by FTP to your blog or change theme directly from the database…

    – Open phpMyAdmin, go to your wp database. Open wp_options table. Search for three option_name – template, stylesheet, and current_theme.

    See the option_value fields from the search result. The option_value will be your theme name. Change option_value of the search result to ‘classic’ OR ‘default’. Classic and default are the default wordpress themes present at the time of wp installation.

    Thanks,

    Shane G.
