NEED HELP NOW! WEBSITE BROKEN! Can't access dashboard.

    I was attempting to edit my functions.php file because I wanted to add a tops header menu.

    I pasted this code into my functions.php

    function top_header_menu() {

    register_nav_menu(‘top-header-menu’,__( ‘Top Header Menu’ ));


    add_action( ‘init’, ‘top_header_menu’ );

    When I updated the file, I got an error message saying

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘}’ in /home/davidbog/public_html/wp-content/themes/twentyfifteen/functions.php on line 338

    So I deleted the code that I pasted but I’m not sure if I accidentally deleted some code or what and the code sections that I pasted it in between now look like this.

    function twentyfifteen_search_form_modify( $html ) {
    return str_replace( ‘class=”search-submit”‘, ‘class=”search-submit screen-reader-text”‘, $html );
    add_filter( ‘get_search_form’, ‘twentyfifteen_search_form_modify’ );

    This is where I pasted the code

    * Implement the Custom Header feature.
    * @since Twenty Fifteen 1.0

    The theme I’m using is twenty fifteen and my website is

    And now I can’t even access my dashboard!

    Never edit the theme files directly – use a child theme, so your tweaks won’t be overwritten when updating the theme. Here are some guides in case you haven’t made one before:
