Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION..Line 11

  • Help! I tried to remove my RSS feed and per the request of another thread I found about how to do this the wordpress page has crashed all together. I followed these directions.
    I’m not 100% sure of my wordpress version but at the bottom right corner it suggests to upgrade to version 3.2.1. So I assume I am using the previous numerical version of 3.2?

    I followed these direction:

    “Go to your theme and paste this in your function.php”
    * Disable Our Feed Urls
    function disable_our_feeds() {
    wp_die( __(‘Error: No RSS Feed Available, Please visit our homepage.’) );

    add_action(‘do_feed’, ‘disable_our_feeds’, 1);
    add_action(‘do_feed_rdf’, ‘disable_our_feeds’, 1);
    add_action(‘do_feed_rss’, ‘disable_our_feeds’, 1);
    add_action(‘do_feed_rss2’, ‘disable_our_feeds’, 1);
    add_action(‘do_feed_atom’, ‘disable_our_feeds’, 1);

    After I did this this came up

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION, expecting ‘)’ in /usr/home/goabov/www/htdocs/main/wp-content/themes/above/functions.php on line 11

    I can’t access any of my pages and it appears as if the site/page is crashed and unable to be fixed?
    How do I get the wordpress page back? in addition how can I remove the RSS feed which I set up to get rid of.

    Try downloading the functions.php by FTP or whatever file management application your host provides. Edit it in a texteditor and re-upload with FTP.

    Thanks Keesiemiejer but how do I download the functions.php by the ftp? If not how do I find what my host provides? I had a friend setup this wordpress section and he is out of the country for 2 months. I’m trying my best to re-install this issue and have the wordpress page back to normal. Please let me know how to download via ftp or otherwise. Thank you.

    Try downloading FileZilla and start with the instructions here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_FileZilla

    Thanks again. I’ve successfully downloaded filezilla and still trying to follow the directions laid out there. This is still over my head but I will keep trying. I appreciate your help with this and I’ll follow up soon with updates.
