Parse Error Need Quick Fix

  • I have no idea what happened. I was editing the functions.php file and clicked update and got this. Click back and deleted the code I had added and clicked update and got the same thing. Now I can’t even login to the admin area. Help please.

    This is the error but you can clearly see this on the site as the site is down right now: “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CLASS in /home/bluepopc/public_html/wp-content/themes/purity-of-soul/functions.php on line 7”

    What happened and what do I do? Any help is appreciated.

  • FTP to your site and either:

    1) restore the functions.php with the one that came with the theme
    2) restore it from a backup so you don’t lose any other changes you’ve made
    3) if you’ve not got a backup and have made previous changes that you otherwise want to keep, download the functions.php, edit it back to how it was before / correct whatever error is on line 7, then re-upload it

    Hey alism,

    Thanks a million. Did number one and it worked. I for some reason didn’t even think of that. Lucky I still had the theme folder of my blog on my desktop.

    Thanks again. 🙂

    How do you “FTP to your site”?

    You use an FTP or SFTP client. If you don’t know FTP login credentials, you’ll have to ask your hosting provider.
