[Resolved] Fatal error: Call to undefined function

  • Alright so I’ve a website up and running for many months.
    I’m using Pagelines-MUD theme through WordPress. I Was working adding some content and css to my site, when out of no-where I get this fatal error message…

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function pl_default_setting() in /home/ryersonm/public_html/wp-content/themes/pagelines-mud/functions.php on line 26

    I’ve never opened this file. There is nothing wrong on line 26…can anybody help me out here?

    I’m sorry but as you are using a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme’s vendors.

    I suppose, but I don’t believe the error has anything to do with the theme. It has to be a coding issue, how does something go from working perfectly, to a fatal error, with any changes to the code…?

    I’m also using the free version

    Call to undefined function pl_default_setting() in /home/ryersonm/public_html/wp-content/themes/pagelines-mud/functions.php

    The issue is in the theme. You can confirm this yourself by switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming:

    wp-content/themes/pagelines-mud

    to:

    wp-content/themes/pagelines-mud-old

    using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    I can’t even access the back-end of WordPress anymore, not even to the login screen

    Please re-read my post above. The suggestion I made does not require you to login to your WordPress dashboard.

    So I renamed TwentyEleven to pagelines-mud, and this is my new error message:

    Warning: require(/home/ryersonm/public_html/wp-content/themes/pagelines/inc/theme-options.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/ryersonm/public_html/wp-content/themes/pagelines-mud/functions.php on line 86

    Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/ryersonm/public_html/wp-content/themes/pagelines/inc/theme-options.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/ryersonm/public_html/wp-content/themes/pagelines-mud/functions.php on line 86

    What do you mean “even tried it with twentyten”? Tried what?

    the same technique with re-naming the “twentyeleven” theme “pagelines-mud”. it still came up with an error.
