[Resolved] Website Error!! I Can’t Edit or View My Site!!!

  • Okay guys, I’m literally having a nervous breakdown right now. I tried editing one line of the filters.php file of the theme I’m using to get rid of a thumbnail showing up in the single post. This is what the forum said to do:

    “It’s possible to do that in library/filter.php.
    comment this line like this: // $postheader .= ‘<div class=”entry-photo”></div>’; this is entry-photo the class name of the thumbnail.
    This will avoid the thumbnail in the header of the post.”
    (http://www.arrastheme.com/forums/topic.php?id=293#post-1229)

    So that’s what I did and when I selected Update File anytime I try to view of edit my site I get this error message: “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘<‘ in /home/content/45/4604345/html/wp-content/themes/arras-theme/library/filters.php on line 4”

    Even when I try to go to home/content/45/4604345/html/wp-content/themes/arras-theme/library/filters.php I can’t because I get that error.

    If you go to my site, http://www.techgeec.com, you’ll probably see it. I really need some help and if anyone can help me out it would be GREATLY appreciated!

    use your ftp client.

    upload a fresh, unedited copy of the file you were messing with.

    Okay so I found a fresh copy of the .php file. Now how do I get it up on my site using an FTP client… I’ve never used one before.

    So do I have an ftp client or is that something like FileZilla?

    sigh, filezilla IS an ftp client. do you have it and not know what it is? I dont reccomend installing siftware without understanding what youre installing.

    And how can I get a copy of the file if it won’t even allow me to go into ANYTHING that has to do with me site.

    you go download the theme from wherever you got it from. you unpack the zip. you upload the file to your site, replacing the one you screwed up.

    Sorry but I edited my previous post. I never had file zilla… just heard about it. I just downloaded smartftp. I have the filters.php folder so how do I upload it? Thanks again for ALL of your help… I really appreciate it.

    Okay. I’ll try that out.

    THANK YOU SOO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!!! I called Godaddy and helped me set up my FTP client and now my site is back up and running! I cannot thank you enough. Now if you’re willing I do have one question for you because I don’t want to screw up my site again. In the forum I was previously looking at to get rid of the thumbnail in the single post it said to do this:

    “It’s possible to do that in library/filter.php.
    comment this line like this: // $postheader .= ‘<div class=”entry-photo”></div>’; this is entry-photo the class name of the thumbnail.
    This will avoid the thumbnail in the header of the post.”

    So how/where would I add that in? Again, please only answer if you want to. I don’t wan to be a hassle to you. But thanks again!

    awesome 🙂

    youre not a hassle. unofortunately, I dont have the answer to your other question, off the top of my head. whats the name of the theme?

    Arras Theme. If you want the theme’s site it’s http://www.arrastheme.com.

    Alright so I was able to remove the thumbnail using a different tutorial. Thank you so much though for all of your help, I really appreciate it.
