Bug in newest version of Chaotic Soul Theme

The version of Chaotic Soul in the latest Farms 133 pack has a really nasty error in the functions.php file that causes the site to error out on both the front and back ends. Fortunately I had this on a multisite installation and was able to delete the theme to restore the blog.

    Greetings diogenese19348,

    Sorry to see that you are having an issue with your WordPress installation and the Chaotic Soul theme.

    Tested it and this is what I found:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘<‘ in /home/aecnuwpm/public_html/wp-content/themes/chaoticsoul/functions.php on line 91

    And it indeed locks down the site until it is deleted.

    I will see if I can get the lead developer in here with his invaluable insight into this theme for his advice/advise for us.

    Sorry for the inconvenience though this may take a bit longer then a normal ticket, I will try to get him in here asap.

    Cheers, Joe
