  • Resolved alonelymountain


    help!! I am fairly new to all of this PHP stuff, and though I can log in to my blog and edit things, when I try to view the site it tells me I can’t! Here is the error message:
    “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/.madoka/thepoleys/ on line 31”
    So what’s the matter? Please help me ASAP, as I would like my blog back.
    the URL is

    also, I was playing with the PHP code to fix the sidebar but I don’t think I touched anything in the index.php file. I don’t think I even have one…I have the stylesheet file though-is that the same??

    nevermind. I was messing with the Main Index Template and I changed the reply you recieve when you search for something on the blog. I wonder why that hurts the template so badly? Anyways, thanks…I was just…panicking and being stupid…*sigh*



    You have an error in one of the theme files. Probably in the sidebar you messed with, though if it’s line 31 that sounds more likely to be the header.php. Since we know you are smart and made a backup of your theme before you changed it, you simply have to delete the corrupted one and upload the backup.

    If you didn’t create a backup, then just go into admin and activate another one, and leave that one active until you’ve sorted yours out.



    wow I didn’t know back up was that important. I guess I should activate that plugin…(slinks away)
