Support » Fixing WordPress » Updated theme and got a fatal error and my entire site is down :(

  • I purchased a new wordpress theme from woothemes.com and upon installing my new theme and previewing, I have now received the following message:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare gettinyurl() (previously declared in /var/www/sites/dccp.ca/htdocs/blog/wp-content/plugins/rf-twitterpost/rf-twitterpost.php:543) in /var/www/sites/dccp.ca/htdocs/blog/wp-content/themes/f0101/functions/admin-functions.php on line 1217

    My entire site is down and I can’t access even my admin pages!
    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Access your server via FTP or SFTP, navigate to /wp-content/themes/ and rename the directory of your currently active theme. This will force the Default theme (WordPress 1.5 – 2.9.2) or the Twenty Ten theme (WordPress 3.0 and higher) to activate and you should be able to access your site and Dashboard again.

    James i have to say this information has just made my day a whole lot easier 🙂

    i was tering my limited hair out trying to fix the same error on my own site after a new theme update!

    Thanks
    John

    That didn’t work for me. Any other ideas please? Thanks so much.
