    I was using the Twenty Ten Theme and I was editing my header. I put in too many pixels and now I can't get into my site. I just get a white screen that says

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /hermes/bosweb/web281/b2811/ipg.weberitecom/koken/wp-content/themes/twentyten/functions.php on line 116

    Is there anything I can do?

    Oh yeah, For future reference, what's a good back up plugin to use lol.. I haven't been using one!!!

    for one thing you should be making a child theme so changes won't be over written on updates

    to fix what you messed up - just download the twenty ten theme and replace the file you screwed up
    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/twentyten

    backing up your /wp-content folder is as easy as downloading it to your desk top - saves themes and plugins

    your posts, pages, comments etc. are stored in the database - back up with this plugin
