I am using the MidMo Clean theme and for some reason the 404 error page isn't working.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/wpversec/public_html/UXJobsLA.com/wp-content/themes/clean-home/404.php on line 14


Short of me disabling all my plugins and re-installing a out of the box version of the theme, anyone have any ideas please? Thanks!

Saw - 1) We need more information than that, there could be many things causing your parse syntax error. 2) You're more likely to get an answer from someone if you improve your accept rate. People put a lot of work into their answers here, and it's nice when they get credit for helping you. :) – eileencodes Mar 18 '11 at 14:44
Thanks Eileen, I missed the accept check mark entirely and went back to check mark some of the great answers. – noel saw Mar 18 '11 at 17:08

So I think you're problem is the quotes in the href inside your function. Try escaping them like this and it should be fixed.
