Support » Fixing WordPress » Edited theme "functions" now WP Admin won't load (or site)

  • bbq797


    I was trying to edit the theme “function” page by adding a bit of code, it didn’t work, so I deleted it. I must have deleted to much or something I shouldn’t have, b/c now it won’t load and my wp/admin page won’t load either.

    If this is a self-hosted WP install, and you have access to the server, you can upload a backed up (or new) version of functions.php to your theme folder to overwrite the broken one.

    At this point, you won’t be able to edit the file through the wordpress admin.

    Try switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme’s folder in wp-content/themes and adding “-old” to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.
