  • Resolved emaarkhan


    I bought a premium theme and whenever i turn it on and click any new page or post or log back in i am faced with blank page. i looked into error_log and it says

    PHP Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home2/theartsr/public_html/wp-content/themes/unspoken/core/theme_options.php:1) in /home2/theartsr/public_html/wp-content/themes/unspoken/functions.php on line 19

    i tried to disable all plugins but nothing happens. can anyone help

  • it looks like there is a blank line before the first line of theme_options.php <? just remove the blank line

    i saw the file theme_option but it doesn’t have space before but after like

    // Admin styles & scripts

    I don’t think it will do anything. but i tried removing it. but it wouldn’t work

    Edit: the line 19 on functions is
    if (!isset($_COOKIE['mode'])) setcookie('mode', ( get_option('unspoken_view_type') == '0' ) ? 'list' : 'grid', time() + 60 * 60 * 24 * 30, COOKIEPATH, COOKIE_DOMAIN, false);
    Also i have noticed that everytime i do /wp-login , it ask me for my password.instead shouldn’t it be remembering my login until the cookie times expire?

    These forums are for either WordPress core or free themes; for premium themes, go to the developer’s website for support and/or a new download.

    “headers already sent” errors seldom refer to relevant lines of code; the issue can be most anywhere.

    songdogtech i know premium themes have dedicated forums but i don’t have a registration plus they aren’t as fast as WP. i was hoping to get answers from here.which might help

    I tried installing theme on my local site and it worked but not on server site.

    it says: headers already sent by (output started at /home2/theartsr/public_html/wp-content/themes/unspoken/core/theme_options.php:1)

    which tells me that line 1 of that file has something on it, since that’s where it’s saying that the headers were started.

    so meaning there is a space before <?php and which files should i watching out for?

    it tells you:


    yes saw that one the line starts with <?php without any blank spaces.

    besides, if there was a problem of theme. it wouldn’t work on my local machine but on server its not.

    but i don’t have a registration….

    What does that mean?

    Well i tried there forums but no success. so i m guessing its not theme fault. something to do with WP because on my localhost its working but on live site. it doesn’t when activated.

    Can be the version number be a issue? i checked on the server its running php 5.2.17 and on local i m running 5.3.8.

    Recreate your wp-config.php file from wp-config-sample.php` (make a copy first).

    Wouldn’t it overwrite my database even if i give the same DB name? and everything in it.
