Website disappeared after updating functions.php

Question

Posted · Report post

Hi Folks,

I ventured where I shouldn't have! I attempted to alter the functions.php file of my website in Appearance/ Editor. I input a line of code and then deleted it and then updated and then my site disappeared. Also, I no longer have access to my dashboard and I notice on the Admin page that my logo has been replaced by the WordPress logo.

Website is www.sogrownow.com

Any help would be greatly appreciated in sorting this.

Regards,

Pearse.

Hello Pearse,

 

Presuming you have FTP access to your site, let's get you sorted.

 

1.  Go to www.pagelines.com/launchpad/member.php, login and go to My Account.  Download the latest version of Framework.  When your download completes, unzip the file to your desktop. You will now have a folder there called pagelines.

 

2.  FTP to your site and navigate to wp-content/themes/.  Locate the pagelines folder there and delete it.  Don't worry. This will only remove the core files, but not any custom settings.  It will remove the functions.php file.  I suspect you edited the main functions.php and not the one we recommend using. (Note: This is why we urge people to read the documentation.)

 

3.  When the deletion is completed, upload the pagelines folder from your desktop to wp-content/themes/ .  Once you have completed the upload, you can now try to login to the Dashboard and should be successful.

 

Please let us know if you need additional help.
