Can anyone help?

I was making some changes to a template and then the next thing I know my site completely disappears front end and all I am left with is a white screen.

I tried to use a default joomla template but nothing happens.

I had a look a previous posts regarding this and it seemed like nobody had come up with a solution.

Please help, I am desperate!

Thanks in advance

A white screen is an error message in disguise. Follow the advice here to reveal the error http://www.phil-taylor.com/2009/01/12/a ... rror-page/

Do you have a backup of your website?

You are welcome. It's helpful to have a good backup strategy and if you backup your website before you change anything or upload new extensions or updates you are always on the safe side.
