    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /home/content/96/11341096/html/wp-content/themes/responsive/functions.php on line 39

    I'm really new to wordpress and website building in general.. I edited the function.php file, which I didn't see the "WARNING: Do not edit this file" until it was too late.

    Now I can't do anything with my webpage and cant get the admin toolbar or anything.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Do you have access to the website files, either by FTP or through your web host (e.g. through cPanel > File Manager) ?

    If so, you can navigate to the /wp-content/themes/responsive folder and edit your functions.php. Go to line #39 and find the extra "<" character, which is probably something like this: "<<?php"
