Tried to change themes now locked out of admin area

  • I have installed WordPress 3.2.1 and two themes into my hosting account. One theme was called butterfly and the other clockstone.

    The clockstone theme has its own dashboard, but I didn’t realize that I could only use that to update the theme. I added menu items using the WordPress dashboard. Then I checked the site none of the menu items were visible.

    I was frustrated by this and decided that the theme was too complicated for me to figure out and I attempted to activate the Butterfly theme instead.

    Now the only thing I can see on my site are these words:

    This theme is released under creative commons licence, all links in the footer should remain intact

    I can not get back into the admin page even when I enter the URL
    http://www.goldenbutterfly.us/wp-admin

    I can get into the files on the server and I could delete either or both of the directories where the themes are located if that would solve the problem.

    Try switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme’s folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.
