Hi guys, I was recently playing around with my theme on wordpress and after I submitted the changes I got a blank page and ever since that I cannot get my login page. Very weird.
I posted something similar to this in the wordpress.org forum a day or two ago but no answer so far.
I read similar posts but none exactly the same, in the mean time I might try googling it to get some sort of answer. Oh btw my site looks fine apart from the fact that I lost google adsense after I switched themes. I went from nature_wdl.1.3 to Atahualpa version 3.6.7 (I'm pretty sure that has nothing to do with it) Regards...Grant

    Hi, swaffi, Come in through the admin area hosting filezilla or other ftp client, go to the folder with the theme and download it, then download the original file and replace their themes to those that edited all)

    yoursite.com/wp-login.php missing? download fresh installation files from wordpress.org and replace wp-login.php file with the current one via ftp.

    Thanks guys. I've never played around with an FTP but I'll give it a shot. BTW do you have any idea why this could have happened? Has this happened to you or anyone out there? Regards..Grant

      @swaffi ?

      Wordpress core files must be corrupted. That has caused the issue.
      In such cases, the best solution is to replace the files you edited with original files.
      In addition you can restore the entire site by restoring from backup from your webserver.(from hosting panel).Some web hosts offer automated backups for 7 previous days. In that case you can go to hosting panel and restore the data.

      Even if your web host doesn't offer automated backups, you can backup your website before editing the files. Taking backup regularly is highly recommended.

    Hi, I also have this problem using themes my previous client paid for. I tried hard to know what seems to be the problem! After I activate the theme, the screen went blank (white). Can't log in to the wordpress and you must go to cpanel and delete your installed themes to be able to log in again.

    In my case, my wordpress version is not compatible with the theme I installed.. Check out your "updates" and make sure wordpress and plugins are all updated.
