  • Problems are due to merge conflicts. Some are quick to fix, but for the bigger changes, I ended up deleting the plugin.

    I suggest other doing the same until it’s fixed.

    Same problem –

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_SL in path/html/wp-content/plugins/tweet-old-post/tweet-old-post.php on line 7

    WordPress 3.2.1 – Plugin V 3.2.3

    For the author, you can add an alias to your command line and run cphp to quickly find these errors.

    alias cphp='find . -name "*.php" -exec php -l {} \;'

    Basically, this cphp alias runs php from the command line to check for problems specifically.

    Good luck,


    I have gotten the same parse error. How can I delete the pluging from my dtabase. I know how to get to the database but do not know what to look for in order to delete the plugin. I am a complete novice in this regards. Can someone please help.

    Get FTP access and then delete the /wp-content/plug-ins/tweet-old-posts directory. FTP access is a bit complicated. You will need a good FTP program like Filezilla and then you add the FTP site to it. Filezilla is free. Download and install it. Put the IP, username and pw into the program and if you get logged in your website will appear on the right half of the app. drill down in to the /wp-content/plug-ins directory and then right click on the tweet-old-posts directory and click REMOVE. Be careful with FTP. You can delete good stuff with it.


    Hello there! Great suggestion and I was able to find it and get it fixed!!

    Thanks for all the great advise everyone!
