Well, I don't know.

I was trying to get rid of the too-long-for-my-liking footer line that begins" "Powered by WordPress..."
so I <!-- and --> around $footer_content.

OOPS
now I get this:
syntax error, unexpected T_DEC in /home/jerice50/public_html/directoryofcheese.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/functions.php on line 138

(I undid the <!-- and --> yet it still laughs at me)

I check on it, and line 138 is this, in its entirety:
the <a href="http://wordpress.bytesforall.com/" title="Customizable WordPress themes">Atahualpa

It seems that I can't even get the code to go back to its original.

Can someone please hit me gently, and then tell me what to do?

Thanks so much!

delete the theme and reinstall it. Then donate $20 and ou will get access to the gold forums where you will find instrudtions to remove that.

well, JuggleDad - I would, but I can't. I am not a mooch, and will gladly fork over assistance buck$, but I have been absolutely stuck out in the cold for over 3 hours.

I am unable to go ANYWHERE in my dot com without the same screaming parse error, specifically, I can't get off the page - WordPress will not even let me go to my dashboard - in order to delete the Theme or do anything else.

... so I am kinda reluctant to provide BFA money without knowing if it will even solve this problem. Know what I mean?


Any sugg's?

I am becoming frustrated.

what version of Atahualpa, WP and PHP? - the line in error is blank in 3.4.2
have you tried yourdomain.com/wp-admin?
You can FTP to the site and delete the Atahualpa folder, that will revert you back to the default theme.

what version of Atahualpa - the most recent one, I think, because I just installed it 2 days ago from WordPress Themes
WP - 2.8.?
PHP? - these have versions??? - told you I was a newbie
have you tried yourdomain.com/wp-admin? - yes - but that bad screen is all that shows
