Parse error: syntax error (php related)

There appears to be some sort of syntax error in code which is preventing my local site from loading. I've looked over it for a while now and can't seem to figure it out. Here is my code and the error message. Any help would be great. proxy error message

That's an easy one. You have extra quotes around the array definition for the third parameter.

Because you made simple errors like semicolons, and single quotes. Remove your functions.php files and replace with this one.


function wpt_theme_styles() {

wp_enqueue_style('foundation_css', get_template_directory_uri() . '/css/foundation.css');

wp_enqueue_style('normalize_css', get_template_directory_uri() . '/css/normalize.css');

wp_enqueue_style('normalize_css', 'http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Asap:400,700,400italic,700italic');

wp_enqueue_style('main_css', get_template_directory_uri() . '/syle.css');



function wpt_theme_js() {

wp_enqueue_script( 'modernizr_js', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/modernizr.js', '', '', 'false' );

wp_enqueue_script( 'foundation.min_js', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/foundation.min.js', array('jquery'), '', 'true');

wp_enqueue_script( 'main_js', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/foundation.min.js', array('jquery'), 'foundation_js', 'true');


add_action('wp_enqueue_script', 'wpt_theme_js');

Just remove quotes around array(jquery). You have it this 'array('jquery')' needs quotes only around the jquery word like this array('jquery')

wp_enqueue_script('main_js', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/foundation.min.js', array('jquery'), 'foundation_js', 'true');

and you need to add foundation.min.js (.min.js)
