Support » Plugin: AH Display Widgets » Fatal error on activation – conflict with Display Widgets plugin

  • Hi,

    As the Display Widgets plugin (from was removed from WordPress’ plugin directory recently I found your plugin as a replacement. However, it could not be activated:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare dw_widgets_style() (previously declared in /home/httpd/vhosts/******/wp-content/plugins/display-widgets/display-widgets.php:754) in /home/httpd/vhosts/******/wp-content/plugins/ah-display-widgets/ah-display-widgets.php on line 767

    It looks as if there is a conflict with the Display Widgets plugin. After deinstalling the latter the AH Display widgets activated nicely.

    I had preferred to keep both plugins active in order to copy the settings more conveniently. Nevertheless, I am reporting this to you since more users might migrate from Display Widgets to AH Display Widgets soon.

  • While your post is five months old and hopefully most people have discarded Display Widgets by now – I recently took over admin for a website that had Display Widgets still running.

    You didn’t need to have both running and copy over settings – the settings remained in your database and AH Display Widgets would have picked them up on activation. That is why AH Display Widgets is so wonderful.

    Hey @nightl,

    Thank you very much for sharing this information. So far I used “Custom Sidebars – Dynamic Widget Area Manager” as a workaround. It works a bit differently but did the job.
