Support » Fixing WordPress » Error messages since upgrading. Downgrading not helped.

  • Hi guys

    Ever since upgrading to 3.4.2 I’ve been experiencing the ‘white screen of death’ after various actions – attempting to log in, activating/deactivating plugins/accessing dashboard.

    I manually downgraded to 3.4.1 and unfortunately it’s not remedied anything.

    I’m getting the following error messages when turning on debug:

    Notice: Undefined index: post_type in /home2/aspiredf/public_html/wp-content/themes/foundationedit12/foundation/includes/theme-functions.php on line 253

    Would greatly appreciate any help.

    Your current theme is the problem. Try switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming:

    wp-content/themes/foundationedit12

    to:

    wp-content/themes/foundationedit12-old

    using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    Thanks Esmi.

    I’ve made considerable headway with this theme and my clients are chuffed with the results and are expecting a finished product by Friday.

    Am I right in thinking my only hope is to reinstall the theme and re-shape it?

    Have you been modifying the theme?

    Yes, but successfully until now. The update’s seemed to have triggered these problems.

    Then I can only suggest that you start again with a fresh copy of the theme. Working on a development server with debug turned on and error logging enabled might help you to avoid these kinds of issues.

    Thanks, I will.

    My only concern is that there being duplicates of the theme. Despite renaming “wp-content/themes/foundationedit12” and “wp-content/themes/foundationedit12/foundation” it’s still showing up as “Foundation” under Appearance -> Theme.

    The new install will also be titled “Foundation” but I want to preserve the my edited version for reference.

    it’s still showing up as “Foundation” under Appearance -> Theme.

    That doesn’t matter. The default theme will now be active. Also rename wp-content/themes/foundationedit12/foundation back.

    The fresh install is exhibiting the same problems :/

    What are my options?

    Thanks for your time by the way, I’d be lost without this!

    Where did you download this theme from?

    I’m sorry but you will need to contact the theme’s developers directly: http://www.wordpressnonprofit.com/contact/

    The wordpress.org support forums are meant for the core application, themes and plugins that are distributed on wordpress.org. That site has absolutely nothing to do with WordPress or wordpress.org and is actually in breach of the WordPress trademark policy.

    Those notices/errors you copied in your opening thread don’t look particularly severe. Another avenue you could explore is memory usage – what is the PHP memory_limit with regards to your hosting account?

    Could be you need to bump it up a little. I find 64M is often a safe figure to start with.

    Thanks for the reply man.

    Yeah I’ve tried increasing the wp-config.php file allocation, all the way up to 256M even. No joy! How would I go about checking my host plan’s php allowance?

    Stick in a support ticket – and ask how you should increase it (supposing you can) … it could be that defining a constant in wp-config.php won’t work in your hosting environment and you need to place a directive inside the .htaccess file, or some other method.

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of your current version of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.
