    Hi there,

    I downloaded a free wp theme and edited the links now my site is not working. I uploaded the theme directly by installing via theme in my wordpress. I get an error message to ftp the new footer link:

    Opps..You Have Modified The Footer Links..
    This Theme Is Released Free For Use Under Creative Commons Licence. All Links In The Footer Must Remain Intact AS IS. Please Appreciate These Supporters Effort In Providing You This Great Theme For Free.
    Please Follow These Steps To Restore The Footer:

    1. Please FTP inside the theme folder and open the includes folder, you'll find footer.txt inside
    2. Copy & paste it to the theme root folder and rename it to footer.php to overwrite the current footer.php you've modified.
    3. Finally, refresh your page HERE to go back to your homepage.

    but I did not upload the theme this way. How can I restore my site please?

    You need to follow the directions they gave you, do you know how to FTP into your server?

    If not, you'll need to log into your hosting account and you can replace the files that way by using their file manager assuming they provide you with one.
