Weird stray code appearing in admin screen (4 posts)

    A theme I'm using, Montezuma (kudos, nice theme, still new) had a patch which involved editing the Theme's admin>options>650_sub_templates.php file which I did on my live site and locally. I musta fat-fingered something on the local files b/c now I have some stray code appearing just below the admin bar. I replaced all of the admin>options files from the original theme's files, and even replaced everything from root wp-admin but no avail.

    Being a local version of the site, I wouldn't care about the superficial stray code on the admin side, but I'm now finding when I try to update a page, I get no result except for a blank screen with nothing but that Bud1%...code appearing

    2 images as samples:


    thanks in advance

    btw, i'm running MAMP for the local server; don't think this could be a product of that as nothing's changed in that code base

    hmm...maybe the reason i didn't get any response was b/c the images i posted didn't make any sense:

    this is the screenshot from the admin page:

    and here's a screenshot from the generated code in Chrome > Inspect Element

    it was a weird ds_store file on mac.
