    Please help me!!!! I have a wordpress blog using the scrappy theme and being hosted by godaddy. It's http://www.mdmommy.com A friend was helping me make some adjustments to the site when we got the below error. I cant seem to log back in to address the issue. What am I supposed to do? I assume re installing the theme will fix things but how can I get in to do that?
    The error reads as follows: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/content/57/8980557/html/wp-content/themes/scrappy/functions.php on line 184

    If you can access the site via FTP, you can replace the functions.php file with a fresh copy, or delete and replace the entire theme folder.

    If you can't access FTP, you'll probably have to contact GoDaddy to get in.

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress.

    - running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    It looks like the site is up and you were given great suggestions.

    Let me know if you are still having any additional issues.
