Has this happened to anyone:

1.  I wanted to switch my theme back to Magento default
2.  did so in the backend via browser ‘configuration’
3.  replaced all areas that had ‘old theme’ and replaced with ‘default’
4.  didn’t work (front end still had old theme
5.  tried again (refresh) - still old theme
6.  went back to config and replaced ‘default’ with ‘default/default’
7.  back end BROKEN!

This is the error message in the broswer window when I attempt to log into the back ebd:

Warning: Mage_Core_Block_Template::include(/home/oceanwid/domains/oceanwidesupply.com/public_html/app/design/adminhtml/default/default/default/template/login.phtml) [mage-core-block-template.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/oceanwid/domains/oceanwidesupply.com/public_html/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Block/Template.php on line 138

SOLVED!!!!

Entering default/default for the template in the config menu messed with the file paths.  I had to create an additional ‘default’ directory to make it app/design/adminhtml/default/default/default…

they say we’re our own worst enemies....

hope this helps someone else having the same issue…
