    I am helping a friend with her site I did an awful thing and added a line to the theme’s .php file (I can’t remember the exact file name, but it was something like theme.options.php). Now when I log in to her site, I get a blank page. The URL after I log in is as it should be:

    I realize now just how stupid it was for me to do that. If anyone can point me in a direction to get back to the dashboard, I will be forever humbled and grateful!

    That is not a free hosted WordPress>COM blog and we do not provide support for it. You are posting to the wrong support forum. If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.ORG click and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.


    Never mind. Sorry for any hassle. I discovered that the site is hosted and I have FTP access.
