  • Just upgrading to WP 2.7.

    How do you delete a theme?

    Under Appearance > Themes, I don’t see anything on the interface that gives me that option.

  • deactivate theme
    delete theme folder from /wp-content

    i wanted to delete a theme because
    i got this error message
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_header() in /home1/peacepr2/public_html/index.php on line 1

    i thought i deleted the theme
    but i’m still getting the same message
    please help





    thats not an error thats generated by a theme. did you read the error??


    themes live inside wp-content/themes/

    what you have done is tried to edit wordpress’ ROOT index.php (the same index.php that lives in the same directory as your wp-config.php)

    That file does NOT get edited.

    edit theme files, NOT that file.

    To fix your error, you need to replace the file you have been editing:


    with a fresh, unedited one.

    does anyone read the docs anymore?? wtf

    how to i get a fresh unedited file




    you download the zip, and extract the contents.

    see the orange download link at the top of every page?

    click that, its self-explanatory.

    thanks I’ll try it

    I tried to change the theme in my site and got this message.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_list_comments() in /home/teatreem/public_html/wp-content/themes/Bloxy 2/bloxy-two/functions.php on line 52

    It was showing the last theme was still active but when I go to the site it is showing the above fatal error.

    I cannot even log in to to get the Wp-content folder to de-activate the theme. What do I do in this situation?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I went into my FTP and deleted the theme that way but now absolutely nothing shows up when I type in the URL.
    Do I have to delete the whole thing ( the blog) and start again ?
