Sparkiling Theme Error essage


I am contacting you because after updated with the latest version of the Sparkling Theme I got an error and I can’t enter my admin.

When I try to enter the admins this is what I get: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM in /home4/florinb/public_html/ on line 160

Prior to this I was struggling to make my first page ti list only excerpts of my posted articles, not full articles, which I couldn’t do. So, I would like some help on this too. Thanks.

Have a nice day.

Hi @easternray,

Sorry to hear of the problem you are having.

Please delete the theme directory /wp-content/themes/sparkling/ in your WordPress install using FTP or cPanel file manager and then reinstall the theme again.

Best Regards,

I deleted the directory and then reinstalled the theme, but then I got again the error message:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM in /home4/florinb/public_html/ on line 160.

Every time delete and install this theme I get this error message. Probably is a conflict with this version of the theme.
Plus, my first problem was that I couldn’t post excerpts of the published articles on my front page, although I checked the excerpts option in the Personalisation menu of the theme. I need to have excerpts on my front page, not full articles.

It seems the issue is causing due to older version of PHP so please try updating PHP version on your server by contacting your web host.

To help us keep support thread separates could you please create new thread for each of your other questions here instead of asking them in your single thread as it makes the thread messy and hard to read.

If you want to you can also add reference of this thread in your newly created thread.

We would be more than happy to help you on your new thread.

I have updated the PHP version on my hosting server and the error message was gone. And doing I also solved the article excerpts problem. Thanks very much. There is no need to start another thread now.

You are most welcome here :slight_smile:
