Site down: I'm getting a Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '
The exact error message is this:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘<‘ in /home/bobbo123/notesfromtheholler.com/wp-content/themes/mistylook/functions.php on line 295
Unfortunately, I can’t print the code because I am unable to do anything on my site without getting that error message.
I’ve seen other threads with a similar problem, and they all seem to indicate that the site was hacked. While I can’t summarily dismiss that possibility, it’s important to mention that I was in my functions.php file trying to add custom taxonomies just before this problem began. Just before that, I added a couple plugins, though these were plugins that I use successfully on another site, so I’m thinking it’s nothing malicious that came from them.
I’ve got a call into the person who hosts my site, and I’m hoping he’ll have some suggestions on what to do. I’m also hoping someone here might provide some guidance.
I’m a self-hosted site, using the MistyLook theme.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: Just saw in another thread a suggestion to use an FTP site to send my site a new functions.php file. I already have Filezilla on my site and am relatively familiar with it via another site I participate on. Is this the direction I need to take?
