    Please open a support thread here: http://wordpress.org/support/theme/strapvert noting the exact error and I’ll take a look in to it.


    @bilrosenberger: I had the same problem.. Via FTP I deleted theme [it’s a pity because StrapVert looks good!] and then I returned to admin section with default theme. (WordPress 3.6 PL)

    It would help resolve the problem if you could post the error in the support forum http://wordpress.org/support/theme/strapvert – How can I fix a problem or help you guys if I don’t know what the error is? :-$

    I value your feedback and any error indicators are very much appreciated.


    Here is the error message I got.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home3/birit/public_html/wp-content/themes/strapvert/inc/strapvert-customizer.php on line 83

    I can no longer access my site at all. It is birit.com.

    All I want is to delete this theme and return to my previous choice. I can’t do anything at all and am freaking out.

    Please help!!!!


    @bartimo What do you mean by “via FTP”. Could you be more specific? I am a newbie and need very simple instructions as to how to get back to another theme. I can’t do anything at all at present.


    I was able to delete theme via ftp
    but I still get the error 🙁

    error is Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home/content/23/6612123/html/Blog/wp-content/themes/strapvert/inc/strapvert-customizer.php on line 83

    Can I kindly ask you to post any issues in the support forum here: http://wordpress.org/support/theme/strapvert where they can be picked up much quicker and a fix released.

    Unfortunately the review section’s post are not fed to the forum so its not until we take a look over here that we become aware of the issues.

    The function that caused the error required PHP version 5.3 or higher and that error only occurs on servers running at PHP 5.2 or lower.

    As of version 1.0.5 of the theme we have removed the function for the time being until the majority of the hosting companies switch to PHP 5.3 – the theme has been approved and should be live soon. In the meantime you can get a copy from here: http://wordpress.org/themes/strapvert/developers/

    As with everything else to do with installing or upgrading WordPress core, themes or plugins the advice is to always backup your database first – and you should always test themes and plugins on a staging install before committing to alive site.
