    changed the wordpress url to my old

    That’s not good… Give this a read on how to reset it without a working WordPress dashboard.

    Personally I like this method myself.

    If you do use that method, please make sure you make a backup copy of wp-content/themes/mantra/functions.php before editing it.


    Additionally, if you do edit that file, just make the top of it look like these lines.


    Then visit and the options should be put back. If you can get in after that then put back the old wp-content/themes/mantra/functions.php file.

    First of all, Jan, Thank you! I am stressed about this and don’t like admitting that this portion is above my head. 🙂 If you have the time and heart to help me could you step through where I need to go. I am not sure where my files are at? I can only get into my account, is the .php in there? Thank you in advance for your compassion . 🙂

    If you follow the instructions in slowly and carefully, you can do this yourself. All you will need is access to FTP (or whatever file management application your host provides) and a plain text editor (to open the downloaded file and make the necessary changes.

    I ended up calling Bluehost and there customer service helped me out. The above did not work but I’m sure it was me and not the directions. Thank you all.
