    I have installed a wordpress theme on my wordpress site and I am getting this error for the comments :

    here is the code :

    
    <?php // Do not delete these lines

                if ($_COOKIE['wp-postpass_' . COOKIEHASH] != $post->post_password) {  // and it doesn't match the cookie

    Just thought I'd let you know that if you experience this error again, it's because you've opened something and not closed it.

    EXAMPLE:

    if( $itunes == 'betterthanwmp' ) { 
     echo 'I think so!';
    
    PHP:
    It's missing a }

    But in your case, you've started <?php and haven't ended it.

    By the way, the problem is that the ?> is commented by the //

    Well actually, you did end it, but you commented out the end.
