[resolved] T_STRING error in feed.php (5 posts)

    I am installing WP for the first time and when I go to /install.php I get this error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/content/t/o/d/toddsqueen/html/wordpress/wp-includes/feed.php on line 417

    How can there be a Parse error in a php code that I did not alter at all? (/feed.php). I have only altered the wp-config.php file. What is wrong here? Thanks...

    Try re-uploading the wp-includes folder from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Darn...I already did that. I am using the latest version, 2.9.1. Anything else to try?

    Here is the line in feed.php it says has the syntax error:

    echo apply_filters('atom_enclosure', '<link href="'%20.%20trim(htmlspecialchars($enclosure%5b0%5d))%20.%20'" rel="enclosure" length="' . trim($enclosure[1]) . '" type="' . trim($enclosure[2]) . '" />' . "\n");

    Wow...I fixed it. Apparently GoLive changed href addresses if you drag files into the GoLive window. I didn't know this...and it added some odd address based on the desktop folder I had unpacked the WordPress files in. I should have known this but didn't. I need to switch to Dreamweaver...does anyone still use GoLive?? Thanks and sorry to take up the forum's time...
