Yep, that’s weird. Even weirder, I made your suggested edit, and I can now reach the login page and log in, but the rest of the blog still returns the same error. I tried quoting my change with a few lines either side for context, so you could make sure it looks right, but each time I hit Submit here in the forum, the page reloaded and my reply wasn’t there.
EDIT: here’s a screenshot
