Support » Themes and Templates » Just installed theme. Error messages in editor??

  • Resolved twhite681


    Hey all. First time wordpress newbie here hoping for some tips.
    I just installed my wordpress theme “Balena” and activated it so i could start editing it, and on the page where i can begin to customize it im getting some strange error messages, and im not sure what to do with them.

    Below are the messages i got
    Notice: Undefined index: action in /home/a7206129/public_html/wp-content/themes/Balena/theme_options.php on line 195

    Notice: has_cap was called with an argument that is deprecated since version 2.0! Usage of user levels by plugins and themes is deprecated. Use roles and capabilities instead. in /home/a7206129/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 2722

    Any ideas on what i need to change and how would be appreciated.

  • Update to this- i found a code change on a help site that drilled the problem down to this line of code
    if ( $_GET[‘page’] == basename(__FILE__) ) {

    to change it to this
    if ( isset($_GET[‘page’]) && $_GET[‘page’] == basename(__FILE__) ) {

    So i did so, but then i got the following error
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘]’ in /home/a7206129/public_html/wp-content/themes/Balena/theme_options.php on line 193

    So i changed it back to what it was, and im still getting that above (last) error.

    And now it seems my whole wordpress admin site has frozen up.. i cant click on any other menu options or navigate to any other pages or even log out.. i just keep getting shown that error message???

    Can anyone help please?

    If anyone can help with my first question that would be appreciated!! I managed to fix the general login in issue i had my reloading the original theme_options.php file.. but im still getting these notices/errors show up on my site.


    Please don’t duplicate threads or bump per the forum rules. It’s a theme issue and that theme is not supported here. Perhaps consider another theme that does not have fundamental problems from the get go.

    Thanks i wondered wether the theme is old and isnt supported by the latest version of wordpress perhaps. Very hard to get answers or even contact the author too.. i just moved on to another wordpress approved theme.

    Good move — if you get no response and the theme is old, that’s not a good sign and you would very likely run into other frustrations with it. And with so many great free themes to pick from, chances are you can find another one that makes you just as happy with it 🙂 !
