I am trying to: login into the admin or top admin bar.
in all cases I get this error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '.', expecting ',' or ';' in /home/hatziank/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wpml-translation-management/classes/jobs/query/class-wpml-tm-jobs-post-query.php on line 5

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

This happened after wpml update. I also tried the patch solution mentioned here but that doesn't work as that fix is already in place.

Hi There,

i wonder what are your results if you go to Plugins->Deactivate and remove WPML Translation management and re install it with a fresh version of it from here

if this does not resolve the issue please provide me with your FTP and Admin details( i was not able to use the ones above as the error is preventing me to [WPML TM needs to be deactivated manually from within FTP in the wp-content/plugins/ add .deactivate next to its folder name])

**Before we proceed I recommend to please take FULL BACKUP of your database and your website.**
I often use the Duplicator plugin for this purpose See:

I would like to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site to fix the issue.
(preferably to a test site where the problem has been replicated if possible)

You will find the needed fields for this below the comment area when you log in to leave your next reply.
The information you will enter is private which means only you and I can see and have access to it.

Thank you,
