    WTF?


    I tried to edit a footer and as I clicked "Update" the text appeared: "This theme is released under creative commons licence, all links in the footer should remain intact". Ok, fair enough, i copied back deleted text, now clicking update, same message, can't save. the porblem - as i vew the site from user stand point, now I see the same message. the theme can't be found in WP content folder.

    Moreover, I can't even access my WP to reinstall the theme, or install a new one.
    The screen with this message appears no matter what I do.

    Can anybody help please?

    Connect via FTP ( filezilla for exemple ), delete theme, and put it again :). 1 minute job.

    Yes, I did install a theme again.

    I couldn't find the theme to delete it - bizzare.
    But i uploaded a theme in theme folder, then extracted files from Zip.
    Anything else I needed to do?

    No changes so far.

    You should find the theme here :

    /public_html/wp-content/themes

    Can you post a link to DL the theme? I'd be interested to take a look at the code. Maybe I'll find a solution for you.
