  • Here is a login window with errors. I have doubts that it will be successful, but if you do get into the dashboard, maybe you can undo the edit you made.

    Hi ClaytonJames,

    I cannot log in to get to the dashboard.

    I thought probably. Where did you add the button? In a post, or in a text widget, or on a page?

    <img src=”URL OF YOUR BADGE“>

    <textarea rows=”3″ cols=”15″ class=”tiny” name=”1″><img width=”125″ alt=”YOUR BLOG NAME” src=”URL OF YOUR BADGE” height=”125″/></textarea>

    I took this from someone on a forum I belong to, I added my information,


    I added it in the text widget

    You may need to correct this from your database. No matter what else you do, make sure you have a complete backup of your database before making ANY manual edits. The results can be catastrophic. I don’t say that to scare you, just to inform you. I recommend you do some research first, but I believe this is the route you must take. Go to your database. Select wp_options. Select option_name, and view the data. There may be three or four hundred rows of data, but you may only see 35 or 40 at a time. Do a search for rows where the “option_name” contains the word “widget“. Singular, and without quotation marks. The next view should be an obvious accounting of your widgets. You want to look for widget_text or similar. If there is more than one, read the data in the row until you find plain text that resembles the code you entered in the widget that caused the problem. Select that row, and chose “delete selected row“. If you are positively sure that the widget is the cause of the problem, it should be gone. What you have done boils down to deleting the widget. Again, editing a database is not for the un-prepared. Get a second opinion if you want. There may be another way, but I am not aware of it. Go slowly, and double check everything before committing yourself to that delete button. I have done my best to give clear and accurate steps.

    Good luck and best wishes.
