Thanks for the tip! I tried that, as well as disabling all plug-ins, but it didn't work. I ended up just installing a fresh copy of my wp-admin folder and it solved the issue. I must have mucked around with code that I shouldn't have.

@brasofilo That's probably not a bad idea ;) I tried everything on that list of steps except manually upgrading, so of course that was the solution. Deleting the wp-admin folder and uploading a fresh copy of it solved my problem. I do not recall editing any code in that folder, but I may have done so a few months ago before I knew the trouble I could get into with editing back-end code.

Thanks for the help! I wasn't aware that developers did that.

So I changed directions with this... I searched the entire plugin directory for a keyword of the code I was editing. I'm not sure why, but the plugin has code that isn't even used. I was editing a php file that apparently does nothing at all. haha. What a big waste of time. If anybody has this plugin (Download Monitor), the unused code is wp-content\plugins\download-monitor\uploader.php and the working code is wp-content\plugins\download-monitor\admin\add_new.php. I wonder if this is a bug that happened during an update, or if he meant to have redundant code for some reason.

So I tried to break it by removing a semicolon. Didn't work. I contacted my host (hostpapa). They told me to refresh my browser cache (which I tried already). I also tried accessing the page in chrome incognito windows since it doesn't cache pages, and tried shift+f5 and ctrl+f5. My host said that they had no caching on their end.

Actually when I made the edits, it said something along the lines of "File edited successfully". But the changes didn't show up. That is why I decided to just delete the plugin, make the changes locally, and then upload it. Still doesn't work, though.

comment Interface for logged-in users to upload/download files
Thank you so much. That is exactly what I was looking for. I also installed the Capability Manager plugin to create a role for some users so they could only upload/download files. This made my day :)
