Support » Themes and Templates » Fatal Error w/ Child theme

  • I tried to create a child theme of twenty eleven to modify a function in functions.php. However, because (at least this is what I read) WP appends the parent php file beneath the child one, one of my variables is getting redeclared, which evidently causes a fatal error. Now I can’t get on my site or any of the WP-admin area to fix it.

    Any advice? I’m pretty new to all this, I might be missing something obvious.

    When creating functions.php under the Child Theme, please make sure that you don’t have any blank spaces before or after the PHP codes.

        echo "Hello World!";

    In your case I would recommend to get an FTP access from your host and download your functions.php and see if you have blank spaces, if so delete them and re-upload again.
