    i tried to put a google analytics snippet into the Header.php section of my theme (thoughts by WPExplorer).
    wehn i refresh i now only get

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /var/sites/l/lukemagician.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/Thoughts/header.php on line 100

    I removed the snippet but i get the same error. I'm not a coder and could easily have accidentally deleted a bracket or something. Anyone able to help?

    current code in Header.php is:

     * Header.php is generally used on all the pages of your site and is called somewhere near the top
     * of your template files. It's a very important file that should never be deleted.

    Looks like you haven't quite copied the whole file here. As your error is produced on line 100, could you include line 100 as well as the surrounding lines?

    hey Jeff. I just this minute fixed it. unzipped the original theme from when I d/l it and compared the two. you're right for what its worth, the last 5 lines of code were deleted somehow. Thanks for the super fast reply, i'm sure ill be back in a panic in a few days time :-)

    Glad to help. One thing that might help you would be to insert Google Analytics using a plugin instead of directly within the theme. There's a ton of Analytics plugins out there that should get your all sorted out.
