Support » Fixing WordPress » Sidebar error – don’t know what to do

  • Resolved SusanM


    I am getting an error on my page above my left sidebar and I have searched until I am blue in the face and can’t seem to figure it out – can someone help please?

    This is the error message in part:

    Warning: main(/home/illusive/public_html/wp-content/themes/MNFLorals/searchform.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/illusive/public_html/wp-content/themes/MNFLorals/sidebar.php on line 8

    Warning: main() [function.include]: Failed opening ‘/home/illusive/public_html/wp-content/themes/MNFLorals/searchform.php’ for inclusion (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/illusive/public_html/wp-content/themes/MNFLorals/sidebar.php on line 8

    My site is here: Illusive Life

    your theme? you ought to know this, but ok..

    Theme Name: Minnesota Florals
    Theme URI:
    Description: A Floral Theme
    Version: 2.0
    Author: Susan Mortensen
    Author URI:

    Your calling searchform.php in the sidebar — thats straight out of the defualt theme install. Either upload it, or remove the call to the file. Its telling you right where it expects to be — in your current theme’s directory.

    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress 2.1.2" />

    you also need to upgrade. your site is exploitable.

    Okay – heavens! I must have copied and pasted that there by mistake.

    Okay – thanks for the heads up – I completely missed that notice on my dashboard about the security upgrade – my bad…thanks for the help.

    Oh, and the template – its a remake – per the notice on the footer:
