?failed? Install = no access. What next?
I've been upgrading my blog from the defaul theme.
I installed the Atahualpa Theme, but when I went to themes/Atahualpa/configuration options [about 20 rectangular setup boxes] ALL of the individual
choices merely relaunched the same setup menu:
I couldn't actuallly make ANY configuration choices,
so NONE of my sidebar information displays.

Q: Did I make an installation error,
or is that menu itself borked?

Q: Before I could change back to the default theme,
my browser crashed with Atahualpa installed, BUT NOT
CONFIGURED, so the META section does not display and I can't log in to fix it. HOW DO I GET BACK IN TO RESET THE DEFAULT THEME UNTIL I CAN GET Atahualpa WORKING PROPERLY?

Do you have FTP access? Probably yes because you uploaded the theme. Try changing the directory name of the atahualpa theme from /wp-content/themes/atahualpa3 (or... /atahualpa/) to something else, such as
/wp-content/themes/_atahualpa3. If you cannot change the directory name for some reason, delete the atahualpa directory. In both cases the default theme should be activated automatically.

Just in case: All these change/delete actions are meant to be done on the web hosting account, not on your desktop computer.

Or if you're just looking for the "Site Admin" link, go to

Thanks for replying!

I deleted the Atahualpa theme directory,
but then my blog just showed a blank page,
instead of reverting to the default theme.

So I reinstalled it. The original problem
seems to be an aborted installed as I
deleted 80+ files, but the new install is
300+! So my blog comes up again, but
still with NO sidebars, especially no META.

With all those new files, the configuration
file would probably work if I could get to it.

Is this your first time installing WordPress or have you successfully installed Wordpress before. I am just asking as you might be missing a step in the installation process?

This is my first install, but my ISP put the main files up for me. It's been running fine under the default theme. I think I just messed up the file transfer the first time, and now I can't log in to configure it properly.

Have you tried this link: http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin/
(Replace yoursite with your domain)

You don't need a meta widget to log in. The login screen is always at .../wp-admin/

Dear Flynn:

Thank you so much for your patience!
That was the info I needed!
