This is completely kicking my butt. First off, my hosting service has ver 2.0.2 installed, so that’s what I gotta use. I just want to DUPLICATE WordPress default theme 1.5 and start to make changes to that. Simple, right?
I download it via an FTP program to my desktop, I change just the folders name and upload it back to my site. I go to the admin page and switch themes to the new one. THE ONLY THING I’VE CHANGED IS THE FOLDERS NAME.
When I start to use the duplicate theme, I get all sorts of error messages. Examples:
(Write a message, after hitting the publish button:)
Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/username/public_html/blog/wp-content/themes/velmas1/functions.php:791) in /home/wickedde/public_html/blog/wp-admin/post.php on line 60

When I switch back to the installed default theme, all these error messages go away, everything works fine. Here’s the killer: when I upload someone else’s theme (almost-spring)…IT WORKS PERFECTLY. </screaming sounds>
The reason why I want to use the default theme is it’s close to what I want. I just need to change a few colors, etc. </gnashing of teeth>
