Hi, I'm trying to figure out why I'm getting the error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' on line 796

But I can't figure it out. Any ideas?

Here is my code att.

First, get a text highlighting editor, if you plan to do any coding at all. And get an editor which displays the line #. Then you will always be able to fix a problem like this yourself. We could try to help you but we might tell you to remove the wrong } so it might be worse than it is.

You can download Scite editor, it has versions for almost any operating system and will do all those things.

Are you sure that's the correct file? There isn't a syntax error showing up in my IDE.

Try the following.

This code, towards the very end,

function bp_dtheme_remove_nojs_body_class()
has a closing, but no opening, bracket.

Line 475 (in my editor):

<li <?php comment_class() ?> id="comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>">
It's malformed if the li is not within a list, and probably requires

<?php echo comment_ID(); ?>

Is comment_ID a function or an attribute..
