Facepalm moment. I broke down my client’s site last night. I designed the site few weeks ago and after receiving the last payment, I thought of customizing the site’s login screen too, although it wasn’t part of our agreement. I added the code to
functions.php, updated it but… oops! syntax error, unexpected ‘<‘. Tried the back button, edited the file but of course it can’t be saved anymore. The worst part is, I don’t have FTP or cpanel access, just the WordPress Dashboard as I was working with iThemes Builder.
Had no choice but email the client and ask for FTP details. Now, everything’s back to normal. Lesson learned – Never edit
functions.php if you don’t have FTP access and better use a functionality plugin.
Hehe, sometimes, we do always learn something new from our mistakes. That’s how we become a better person right?
We should always learn from our mistakes, and other people’s mistakes too. It reminds me of the commercial tuloy – “I got stinky, I got dirty, but see, I learned!” Salamat Ron.
