[Resolved] Help! I installed a theme from the WP options and it killed the website!

  • Hi, I was changing themes and tested a few to see what they looked like.

    Then I installed this one called Station, it had some weird menus and then I was unable to do anything… this is what it says

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function add_theme_support() in /home/sobpad/public_html/wp-content/themes/typografia/functions.php on line 2

    I wasn’t able to do anything after that and the site is completely down.

    Please help! This website isn’t backed up, so I hope to god it is fixable!

    The website is http://www.soberpaddy.com

  • FTP in and delete the folder of the problem theme, the site should revert to the default theme.

    The problem you experienced is that the particular theme you were attempting to use is apparently for newer versions of WordPress, add_theme_support is a new function 2.9/3.0+ … so of course won’t work on 2.8 ..

    OK thank you so much, I will get my dev person to try that.

    I thought I had right royaly screwed things up!

    Thanks so much Mark!
