  • reupload the functions.php to the magazine basic theme and start again.

    go in via your hosting cpanel and find the file and just reuplaod/overwrite the one you edited.

    if you’re going to make significant changes to any file in a theme make a child theme and edit the files there.

    Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate it. I did that right away and nothing happened. What should I do next? is it possible to reinstall the theme without losing the content? i dont mind losing the layout I have done so far. again thank you

    you should be able to delete the theme and reinstall it pretty easily. not sure if you’ll be able to upload it via your sever file mager or if you’ll need an ftp client program thingy. depends on the size of the unzipped folder that contains the theme…

    try it and see what happens 🙂

    It just magazine basic theme, I have filezilla. is the best thing to delete the current magazine basic and download the new one and drag it into wp-content/theme in filezilla? will i still have my content? sorry about all this.

    definitely, just replace the theme and nothing else and see what happens. delete the old one first so you don’t have to wade through lots of overwrite dialogue boxes!

    Thanks, I did that alright and nothing still. Would it have anything to do with another theme i have in the wp-content/theme folder in filezilla? I have twentyten theme in there also but the magazine basic theme is the one I had originally installed. thanks again.

    leave the twentyten theme in there, that’s fine. remove the original magazine basic theme and see what happens…

    Renaming the existing theme folder should have triggered WP to use a default theme.

    I would also try temporarily renaming your plugins folder to something like plugins1
