Web Content Editor crashed SharePoint Site

My folk worked on the web content editor and for some reasons to cause the site down. Found this article at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14636145/how-to-roll-back-sharepoint-content-editor, and was able to get back in and close the web content editor, and bring the site up again.

Thanks. Great article.

    Hey Users...


    • Stop asking me to crack a password protected file
    • Don't tell me the server is down; I tell you if the server is down or not
    • Don't ask me to block your girl friend's or wife's email just because you got caught to have an affair
    • Don't tell me you have resolved the issue ON YOUR OWN after all the help/information/instructions provided to you.
    • Don't complain your computer is "Extremely slow" after you installed all kind of shits.
