Support » Themes and Templates » Weird Plugin Problem – “Call to undefined function:”

  • Hello All,
    I’m using a variant of the Hemingway theme. I have uploaded a plugin called “recent_comments” and in the Admin section, I can see it (as a “block” for the BottomBar), however, when I load up the front end of my blog, I get:
    <b>Fatal error</b>: Call to undefined function: mdv_recent_comments() in <b>/home/sites/domain/public_html/wp-content/themes/themename/blocks/recent_comments.php</b> on line <b>4</b>

    This line is obvious:
    <?php mdv_recent_comments(10, 7, '<li>', '</li>', false, 1) ?>

    Any idea what could be causing this? I’m very confused because wp-admin is seeing the installed plugin. Very strange if you ask me. 😀

  • Seems like you haven’t activated the plugin yet…

    How does one go about activating a plugin that wp-admin doesn’t say needs to be installed?

    Go to the plugins page in the admin. If you see the plugin there, then click the Activate link next to it. If you don’t see the plugin there, then you have not uploaded it to the right place or something.
