Support » Theme: ComicPress » Site disappeared please help

  • Hi, I was editing the html code and I must’ve made a massive blunder because my site has now disappeared. I’m not even sure what I changed. It is a blank page if you visit it
    I have no idea how to undo what I did as I can’t even log on to the admin page. I need desperate help with this. Thanks.

  • You will need to go into your site thru FTP or the hosts admin panel (usually C-Panel). You then need to navigate to ??\wp-content\themes.
    Rename your comicpress folder to comicpress-bad. This will make WordPress use the default theme (I hope you didn’t remove it).
    Let us know if that works.

    Hi thanks, but that hasn’t worked, the site still seems to blank! :S
    Gives a WordPress login screen.

    I can’t get into the editor. If I try it says “the requested theme does not exist”. Even if I could, I am not sure what I would change to revert the site to the way it was. What is it recommended that I do?

    Okay now the site is displaying the default WordPress theme (as you may have already noticed) but I cannot get comicpress 4.0 back on.

    Re-install the theme. Leave the old directory named comicpress-bad.
    You will lose any customization you may have already made but you still have the files as reference for re-applying them.

    Also, whenever you modify PHP files you should be using a child theme.

    Okay, I just deleted the old comicpress and downloaded it anew and reinstalled it and everything is back to normal. Thanks for the initial suggestion :]

    Glad you got it fixed, and love the homepage toon 😉

    Thanks ^^
