    The White Screen of Death has struck again!!

    Go to the file using FTP or File Manager in cPanel and delete the code you added that caused the error. Download a copy of the functions.php first as backup.

    Here’s the path: public_html/wp-content/themes/church/functions.php on line 52

    When i copied and pasted the code from the SP code snippets, it changed the apostrophe’s and caused an error because i didn’t copy the raw version. This is a very common error caused by incorrectly copying and pasting PHP Code.

    Try this:

    // Customize the footer section
     add_filter('genesis_footer_creds_text', 'church_footer_creds_text');
     function church_footer_creds_text($creds) {
      $creds = '[footer_copyright] &middot; <a href=”http://www.willowhavenoutdoor.com”>Copyright Willow Haven Outdoor 2010</a>';
     return $creds;
     }
    

    Its also best practice to use a text editor like Notepad++ and use FTP or File Manager in cPanel rather than the File Editor in the WordPress Dashbaord.
