Simple Machine Forum tip - recover from screwing up a theme

You have turned on support for SOME FEATURE, but it doesn't seem the mod is actually installed!

If you manage Simple Machines Forums and do any amount of customization, you are bound to mess up a theme to the point that you can't access any pages. Don't panic, you don't have to hack the database to change the theme values to their defaults. You simply need to use a different theme.

Here is how. Simply add "?theme=1" to your URl:

yoursite.com/index.php?theme=1

Then you can edit the values of the theme you were working on. This only works if you are not altering the default theme. For this reason, if you are going to make changes to the default theme, make a copy and change that version.
