Really baffled

Hi everybody

 

I followed the instructions on the 'default demo page' for changing it to look like your own. All I did was change some text and I got this error message:

 

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/sites/paulbentleymusic.com/public_html/eshop/includes/languages/english/index.php on line 13

 

Now I've been trying to solve this on the forum for a few days now and some of the advice I've tried to no avail and some of it I was unsure how to do. This is what I've done thus far.

 

I originally went into File Manager in Control Panel to change the text. The process was:

 

I opened the index.php file at: includes/language/english/index.php

 

Edited text, clicked save and attempted to view the online catalog.

 

ERROR MESSAGE as above

 

I was advised on the forum to 'escape the apostrophy' in a couple of places, which I did.

 

For some reason File Manager would not save the changes so I saved them in my hosts Control Panel.

 

Refreshed the browser.

 

ERROR MESSAGE the same as above.

 

I have repeated this process several, several times. No joy.

 

OK I know I'm a newbie but I seem to have done what is required but, nothing.

 

The only thing I havn't done is edit in ftp.mywebsite, but I really don't know how.

 

There must be a really stupid reason why this isn't working.

 

Please help.

I used to have the same problem until I started using Dreamweaver(only editor I've tried).

 

I know you're probably sick of doing the same thing over and over but d/l the fully functional Dreamweaver trial and see if the same thing happens. I think the trial is 30 days if I remember correctly.

 

If you're still getting the error you should post the code here.

 

Sorry but that's the only help I can offer, not a coder myself.

 

PS-Unless you made numerous changes, I would try editing a fresh index.php instead of trying to fix that one.

Go New England Patriots!!!!

This issue is raised a hundred times a week in these forums in various combinations. Try searching the forums a bit....
