A client asked for some assistance in connecting up some Snippet Sync files and after uploading the files and Submitting the settings I get the following error when I try to load the home page:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in expressionengine/libraries/Functions.php(683) : eval()'d code on line 712

The site is running EE 2.5.5 and I can access the control panel without difficulty.

I would appreciate any assistance available on this.

Thanks.

  • Have you updated the functions.php file? Seems to be corrupted! – Timo002 Apr 5 '14 at 13:04
  • I have not done anything with the functions.php file. Since this is a 2.5.5 site, what would be the best option? – forrest Apr 5 '14 at 15:48
  • Solved your issue already? I have really no idea what to do. Debugging the functions.php file? What files did you update? – Timo002 Apr 8 '14 at 20:21
  • The problem wan't with the functions.php file, it was bad code in one of the snippets where a value was not found and was causing the extra } – forrest Apr 8 '14 at 20:32

It's an eval() error, which means the syntax in your templates is incorrect.

Check the snippets you recently changed, and in particular look for something like:

{if something == "nothing"}

{/if}} <-- oops! extra closing bracket

  • Hi Adrian, I haven't been able to spot any extra closing brackets, but it lead me to a search of all the snippets. There appears to be some erroneous coding coding on with gwcode_categories, which I will pursue separately. Thanks for your help. – forrest Apr 7 '14 at 14:50
