Support » Fixing WordPress » Problem with wp-includes/category-template.php

  • I tried to edit the category-template.php file to change the tag cloud function on line 523. All I changed was the numbers of:
    ‘largest’ and ‘number’
    ‘smallest’ => 8, ‘largest’ => 22, ‘unit’ => ‘pt’, ‘number’ => 45,

    Now I get the error message:
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘<‘ in /public_html/wp-includes/category-template.php on line 676

    When I tried to use my backup file, I still get the same error message.
    Is there something I can do or is there a way to get a clean copy of the category-template.php file?

    Thanks,sorry for the double post, I couldn’t figure out how to remove the other post.

    Update, I added a new copy of category-template.php and now I get the error message:

    Fatal error: Only variables can be passed by reference in /public_html/wp-includes/category-template.php on line 675

    Here is line 675:
    str_replace( ‘,’, ‘,’,’,’.’, ( $smallest + ( ( $count – $min_count ) * $font_step ) ) )

  • do NOT edit core code.

    Whatever you do, don’t do it.

    Always, ALWAYS find a way to do it through a plugin.

    Hacking the core is the worst thing you can do.
