So I was trying to edit formatting.php to change the default excerpt from 55 to 35, I just changed the numbers and uploaded the file. Afterwards I get this error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_LNUMBER in /mnt/gs02/herd02/26608/domains/kindletank.com/html/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 98
So I thought, well I will just change it back. Still get the error. I even uploaded a fresh copy of the file, and still the error shows up. I cannot even get into my dashboard.
