    I tried to reinstall Word Press via FTP. I did my best to follow the directions on the WordPress site titled CODEX – Upgrading WordPress Extended (

    The trouble is now, I have a bunch of code type lines above the website template. Some of the design elements are missing but the content appears to be there.
