    .home .entry-title{
    display: none;
    }

    I added this bit of code to the customizer section of my editor to try and remove a page title and since I hit update files, my site will not load (not even the admin page). I have been working on this site for a few weeks now and really want to retrieve it. I am a complete beginner to wordpress so any help would be greatly appreciated. (I am using the sketch theme, the site is jackbowlby.com)

    Can you reach your site via ftp?

    download the style.css from wp-content/themes/sketch, remove the lines and upload it back again, and see if it works

    Thanks, I have been learning about using ftp since your reply. I have downloaded the style.css from cyberduck and opening it in textwrangler, however I cannot seem to find this piece of code that caused the problem, it doesn’t appear to be there. I added it to the end of the editor in my wordpress admin page, is there a way to search for certain pieces of code in your style.css?

    That shouldn’t have killed your site, what file did you place that snippet in? Did you possibly add it to your “functions.php” file?

    most editors have a CTRL-F function to find words ect..

    I think I added it to ‘Appearance/Editor’ in my blog dashboard. I have searched through the files under ‘WordPress content/Themes/Sketch’ via ftp using cyberduck, and I can’t find the snippet anywhere…

    The snippet was in the Customizer.php. I have removed it and the site is up and running again. Thanks for all the help!! 🙂 Check out my site if you have time, jackbowlby.com 🙂

    Nice looking site. You should consider using a child theme for your customizations so they don’t get lost when you update WP or your theme files.
