[Resolved] [Plugin: FeedWordPress] Feedwordpress error- Warning:Cannot Modify Header Information

  • Hi,

    I recently installed feedwordpress v2011.1019 on a site running wordpress v3.31 and encountered the following error message, shortly thereafter:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/myaccount/public_html/wp-includes/general-template.php:2101) in /home/myaccount/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 861

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/myaccount/public_html/wp-includes/general-template.php:2101) in /home/myaccount/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 862

    The error goes away if I deactivate the feedwordpress plugin, and it persists even if I de-activate all other plugins.

    I also tried doing a fresh wordpress install on the same host with feedwordpress the only plugin installed, and I still got the same error message when I activated the feedwordpress plugin.

    I noticed that this feedwordpress error has also been noted in other threads:
    But I have not seen a solution to this error.

    Does anyone have clues as to what may be causing this or to a possible solution?

  • I have the same issue, I just installed wordpress and installed feedwordpress plug-in, when active, shows me the error about the header in the settings page, no other plugin does that, and if deactivated the errors goes away.. I already tried this http://codex.wordpress.org/Answers-Troubleshooting#Headers_already_sent


    We need help! anyone??? :s

    This solved the problem for me:

    Comment out line 1178 on feedwordpress.php (located in the wp-content/plugins/feedwordpress folder).

    So this:

    if (function_exists('wp_admin_css')) :

    Turns into this:

    if (function_exists('wp_admin_css')) :

    Not sure if it causes any other problems but so far I haven’t had any issues.

    Hi Tosaha,
    Your fix worked for me.
    Thanks for contributing and I appreciate the help.

    Thx Tosaha. I’ve just run into this issue as well. I wish the author of the plugin would have a look at this and fix it.

    Wouldn’t it be great if we could register issues directly on the plugin? Drupal has that. So the number of open and closed issues and bugs can help you decide whether you want to look into using this plugin.


    Had the same error on 3.3.2, Tosaha’s fix resolved the issue. Thanks.


    Same problem and Tosaha’s solution fixed it.
    WP: 3.2.2
    FeedWordPress: 2011.1019

    Toshiba’s fix worked for me too.! Thanks

    Hey all,

    The workaround suggested by tosaha above should resolve this issue. I’ve incorporated a similar fix already into the Development Version of FeedWordPress, which should be part of the next public release. (Hopefully to be coming out next week.)


    Good lord I hope so. wp-admin/css/dashboard.css isn’t there and breaks the plugin settings page.


    Thanks a lot tosaha. it solved my admin dashboard layout breaking problem in internet explorer 7 & 8.

    Turns out for our site that a database table had crashed. We have GoDaddy hosting and a call to them resulted in them correcting the table within 20 seconds. Not a total GoDaddy fan but this was worth the other aggravations.

    tosaha fix works. I hope this great plugin has continued development. I’d hate to see it get dusty! I’d love to contribute.



    tosaha fix works. thanks

    Hey all,

    So, for reference, this issue should be definitively fixed in the most recent release of FeedWordPress, v. 2012.1212, available now at:


    Let me know if it fixes the problem you’re encountering, or if there are any outstanding issues you’re still seeing after making the upgrade.
