    I was editing my site’s (http://YawdFromAbroad.com) index.php file and mistakingly pasted html code from Notepad into the index.php file (in the admin screen). Now my site will allow me to log in and access the dashboard, but no matter what link I click (settings, write, manage, etc), it freezes for like 5 minutes, goes to a blank screen, and then tells me that I am attempting to access the themes.php file. Needless to say I can’t do a thing on my site at this point. I’ve attempted to delete the entire index.php file and re-load via FTP it but it’s not working. Can someone please help?? Thanks a million.

Whooami,
I’m suddenly able to access everything now….maybe it was a server issue. Never-the-less, thank you for your help and quick response.

as I just said, that shouldnt break anything inside wp-admin.

disable the theme. if you are unable to do so inside your wp-admin, then make sure that you have the defualt theme uploaded properly, ftp in, and delete the directory with the screwed up theme.

If that solves your wp-admin problem, that will be a new one on me.

This is why its best to download files that you wish to edit, make the changes locally, and then upload the changed files.
