Removing Erroneous Themes and Plugins

There are actually multiple ways to solve this problem but the simplest way out is what we’re aiming of. Please follow the steps below.

Theme Removal

1. Login to your site’s CPanel > File Manager > public_html/wp-content/themes

2. Find the erroneous theme’s name. Click on the theme then click Compress – if you look at the top menu one of the options is compress – you need to compress your file for backup purposes.

3. Click your theme’s name again then click Delete, delete is just inline compress button.

By deleting the current active theme, WordPress will revert the theme to another theme automatically because it cannot find the active theme.

Plugin Removal

1. Login to your site’s CPanel > File Manager > public_html/wp-content/plugins

2. Find the erroneous plugin’s name. Click on the plugin then click Compress – if you look at the top menu one of the options is compress – you need to compress your file for backup purposes.

3. Click your plugin’s name again then click Delete, delete is just inline compress button.

Very fast and simple!
