'Syntax Error'

I am currently editing a wordpress theme however for some reason it keeps showing that I have a syntax error but I can’t see what the problem is. Can someone please help me:

function childtheme_background() {
	$shortname = get_option('of_shortname');
	if(get_option($shortname . '_background_pattern') != ''){
		[B]$output = "<!-- Background Pattern -->\
<style type="\\\\"text/css\\">\
body{ background: url(http://www.avillafan.com/wp-content/themes/traction/images/body-background.gif) no-repeat; }\
add_action('wp_head', 'childtheme_background');


The error is showing on line 125 (The bold text).

The problem I have is I cant access my admin area because of this error now aswell. Any help would be appreciated.

You have 2 slashes and 2 " in the first part of the line, it should be:

$output = "<!-- Background Pattern -->\
<style type=\\"text/css\\">\\

Thanks :stuck_out_tongue:
