I've just started a blog using wordpress on a hosted server and following a recommendation from: http://www.bestwpthemes.com/#top10, decided to download thematic and sugar cane. When uploading the directory structure for thematic my file manager advised that the the style and functions.php files within the 'theaticsamplechildtheme' folder already existed in the server directory and did I want to overwrite. I decided not to overwrite. I then uploaded sugar cane.
Thematic appears in the 'appearance' panel of my wp-admin dashboard but wordpress advises that sugar cane was incomplete and has a missing template. I checked the folder for sugar cane and it only has two files in there: functions.php and style.
When I went to activate thematic all I got was a blank white page. When I try visit my site I get this message:
Warning: require_once(/home/wuwutshi/public_html/wp-content/themes/Thematic/library/extensions/theme-options.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/wuwutshi/public_html/wp-content/themes/Thematic/functions.php on line 35
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/wuwutshi/public_html/wp-content/themes/Thematic/library/extensions/theme-options.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/wuwutshi/public_html/wp-content/themes/Thematic/functions.php on line 35
Additionally, since this I can no longer access either my site via the URL or wp-admin. In order to re-access my site I had to delete the entire directory structure for thematic from my hosted server. Can anyone shed any light on what's going wrong?
Thanks in advance for any support you can offer.
