How do I make one custom link in the Pages Menu?

Hi guys!

I searched previous threads and found an answer to this question (with the same title) from Flynn. However, I am getting an error message.

Flynn said: Add this to the bottom of Atahualpa's functions.php

<?php function replace_menu_link($string) {
return str_replace('http://www.yoursite.com/link/to/dummypage/',
'http://www.othersite.com/link.html', $string);
}
add_filter('wp_list_pages', 'replace_menu_link');
?>

Now, to be clear on what I did, I literally did what he said and added this as an additional <? ?> section after the last ?> of the original function.php code. My specific code is:

<?php function replace_menu_link($string) {
return str_replace('http://bestbiztips.com/quickmedquote/web-conference/',
'http://wc.iboomerang.com/skin-iboomerang/join.jsp?p=7711106', $string);
}
add_filter('wp_list_pages', 'replace_menu_link');
?>

Doing this, I get the following error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/content/a/b/x/abxnetwork/html/quickmedquote/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/functions.php on line 1059

The website I am working on is for a client: http://www.bestbiztips.com/quickmedquote. I want the Web Conference page to go to an outside URL.

I am not conversant in PHP, so this is pretty Greek to me.

What am I missing?

Thanks so much!

KIP

What version of Atahualpa and WP?

check your code and make sure there are no invisible characters in it. When I copied the code from the other post, it shows several non-printable characteres which will cause errors when being parsed by php.

LOL! That would help!

The latest of both: WP 2.8.5 and Atahualpa 3.4.1

Thanks!

Hi Juggledad -

Okay, I upgraded and inserted the suggested code as I previously described.

Now I am getting this error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/content/a/b/x/abxnetwork/html/quickmedquote/wp-content/themes/atahualpa344/functions.php on line 657

I have left the site with the error showing.

So I am still doing something wrong!

Thanks!

please send me a copy of your functions.php I can't reproduce this adding your code in. Must be something else.

If you can't figure out how to send a copy, you can create me an id (send it in a PM) so I can look at your backend (Dashboard->Apearances->Editor) to look at the code.
