Hello,

I am having trouble in wordpress. I want to add a welcome sidebar instead of a static page. I have been provided instructions from the theme provider of my blog (Theme Xoda) and I have to change some coding in order to do this.

I completed steps 1-2. As I attempted step 3, I noticed an error message. The message says "There is 1 error which must be fixed before you can update this file." I need to edit file post-meta php in the theme, but I do not want to make changes until this error is resolved.

I reached out to site support about this and they told me to contact the theme provider. I contacted the theme provider as well and they basically blew off my inquiry about fixing the error before making changes.

I am not sure what this error is. Would I be able to be assisted on how to analyze and fix the error? I do not want to possibly break my site by updating the code as instructed by the theme provider before the error is fixed. I have attached the conversation between the theme provider and myself:






I hope that this makes sense. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Terese

Suggestion: You may want to add your code inside the Ad Inserter plugin, as you do not want to edit your themes files directly as you will lose your changes when the theme updates or if you change your theme.

Hi Abie,

I will install this plugin and see if that helps. Thanks so much.

It seems the code you have is trying to inject PHP where it doesn't belong which is inside an HTML container, though I could be wrong because the screenshot image is too small to read the corrupt text.

I just opened one image in a different window. I was able to blow it up and see better. Still somewhat blurry, but way more visible. Not sure if you are able to do the same, but thanks for your reply.

I tried but my eyesite is poor because of my diabetes. I need another set of glasses and I just got these in February.
