I've attached the files I've edited to make it work...if someone gets a chance, can you see if I edited something incorrect? I've triple checked the edits and still can't find out why this ACP page won't load. Unfortunately its one of the pages I need too
Your problem is at the beginning and end of acp_users.php. The very first thing allowed in a php file (a file with a .php extension) is:
but the beginning of your acp_users.php file looks like this:
(And that's why you are seeing a ");" at the top of the page.)
Similarly, the very last thing allowed in a php file is
but your acp_users.php file has a line return after that (I see your functions_display.php and functions_posting.php files also have line returns at the end where they shouldn't so I'm surprised those aren't giving you trouble as well.)
Did you edit those files with a plain text editor or with something like dreamweaver? If you are using anything other than a plain text editor you are at risk of messing up your files in ways that cannot always be fixed (dreamweaver and similar editors have a nasty habit of inserting characters that it thinks you want - and sometimes they are invisible so you can't even tell it's done that). If this is really a clean install it's probably worth starting over and this time use a plain text editor (notepad++ or editpad or textpad or any of a number of free plain text editors that you can find on the web).
Also, remember to set the editor so that it saves in utf-8 without BOM.
