    I am using bluehost as my host. I have read many forums as i need to go back to the original theme of twenty ten by accessing my webstie through FTP. I logged in my website through bluehost recommended FTP Firzilla and I don't know what to do from there? I am just able to see a whole bunch of files that don't mean much to me. It is sooo confusing and I am not tech saavy. Please help!!!

    Are you just trying to change which theme is the Active one?

    You cannot change which theme is the "Activated" one by using FTP, at least not that I know of. The Active Theme is set in the Database. If you are unable to log into the Dashboard to change it there, I would suggest you edit the database to change the Active theme.

    Bluehost has a tool in their cPanel called phpMyAdmin for doing that. You will want to select the correct database name from the left, then choose the table called wp_options or something similar to that. On the 2nd or 3rd page of the 'options' table there will be 2 lines for 'template' and 'stylesheet' and you have to edit both to type in twentyten (one word, lowercase).
