Support » Fixing WordPress » I can’t see anything!!

  • Last night I was trying out different themes on my blog and I clicked on one of the themes then my browser started to refresh and when it was done all I had left was a blank screen. I tried this morning to log into my WordPress blog and it says this in the address bar:

    Same issue here.
