Support » Fixing WordPress » Parse Error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING

  • Hi! I’m literally brand new to WordPress & I’m pretty sure I’ve already managed to mess things up. I attempted to edit the theme “LightWorld.2.0.0.6” under custom_header to change the values for the height & width of the header. However, I’m sure I did it wrong because I got this: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/whisperw/public_html/valiumobsequy/wp-content/themes/lightword/custom_header.php on line 16

    & with that, I don’t have access to the Dashboard or anything else. Could someone help me please? I really don’t know what to do. :/

  • Something got screwed up in your PHP. Do you have FTP access to the offending file and can you post the contents of line 16 and preceding?

    define( ‘HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH’, apply_filters( ‘basic_header_image_width’, $lw_top_header_image_width ) );
    define( ‘HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT’, apply_filters( ‘basic_header_image_height’, $lw_top_header_image_height ) );

    // Don’t support text inside the header image.
    define( ‘NO_HEADER_TEXT’, true );

    // Add a way for the custom header to be styled in the admin panel that controls
    // custom headers. See yourtheme_admin_header_style(), below.
    add_custom_image_header( ”, ‘basic_admin_header_style’ );

    // … and thus ends the changeable header business.

    if ( ! function_exists( ‘basic_admin_header_style’ ) ) :
    /**
    * Styles the header image displayed on the Appearance > Header admin panel.
    *
    * Referenced via add_custom_image_header() in yourtheme_setup().
    *
    * @since 3.0.0
    */
    function basic_admin_header_style() {
    ?>
    <style type=”text/css”>
    #headimg {
    height: <?php echo HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT; ?>px;
    width: <?php echo HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH; ?>px;
    }
    #headimg h1, #headimg #desc {
    display: none;
    }
    </style>
    <?php
    }
    endif;
    ?>

    — That’s what’s in the theme that I downloaded. However, I’m having trouble accessing my site through FTP so I can just tell you what I put in that I believe messed it up.

    define( ‘HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH’, apply_filters( ‘basic_header_image_width’, 1802px_top_header_image_width ) );

    I had added the 1802px in place of $lw because I thought that was how I could change the allowed width

    $lw_top_header_image_width is a variable name. If you change that, it’s going to blow up on you. If you want to set the width manually, replace:

    `
    define( ‘HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH’, apply_filters( ‘basic_header_image_width’, $lw_top_header_image_width ) );`

    with

    define( 'HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH', 1802 );

    Thanks! But, how do I do it? I get the error on every part of the Dashboard

    If you don’t have FTP access, your hosting service may offer web-based tools for managing files, a la cPanel or Plesk. If you don’t have access to anything, it’s time to call tech support.

    Below is the end of my wp-config.php file. Line 90 is the one in bold type. What do I do to correct it?

    define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);

    /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    /** Absolute path to the WordPress directory. */
    if ( !defined(‘ABSPATH’) )
    define(‘ABSPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’);

    Once I uninstall and then reinstall wordpress, I can access my admin login. But once I go to Settings, General, and edit the sub domain on the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) and save, I get errors when I click on anything in my Dashboard and it is impossible to do anything but uninstall again. How do I get control of my site again? My other site http://www.secretrestaurantrecipessite.com woks perfectly fine, but http://www.specialtomeyouare.com/hello is broken. Please help!

    I uninstalled wordpress because I kept getting the error below after trying to edit the sub domain on the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL).
