I follow online instructions for adding a StudioPress Affiliate link to my child theme footer as seen here. I added to code to the finctions.php file, updated the file and received a Server Error report. I clicked back and removed the code, updated the file again and received the same Server Error report. I can’t access the site anymore
What can I do???
Thank you for any and all help! Im relatively new to this and probably shouldn’t have messed with anything this far over my head….
Ryan – I can guarantee we have all done that at one time or another, so don’t stress!
To access your site, you will want to log into your host site, delete the child theme folder, and upload a clean copy.
It’s recommended that php changes be done through FTP and a code editor, so that you can revert changes without breaking your site.
I would just go into your cPanel and access your functions.php file and delete the code you just put in. In the future I would do as Susan suggests.
