I create normally a category and i put it in the top menu, then in sidebar and then again, for testing in the footer. My category doesn’t work. It shows http 500 error. here the log:
[28-Dec-2016 22:54:24 UTC] PHP Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required ‘/home/redlplzu/public_html/wp-content/themes/optimal/wp-blog-header.php’ (include_path=’.:/opt/alt/php56/usr/share/pear:/opt/alt/php56/usr/share/php’) in /home/redlplzu/public_html/wp-content/themes/optimal/index.php on line 17
So i probably missing a wp-content/themes/optimal/wp-blog-header.php file but i don t have it, neither in the backup, neither in the original Optimal theme.
The blog is: http://vaidiskate.com/
What can i do? Cheers, PaoloDecember 30, 2016 at 12:19 pm #20237
I’ve never had that issue happen before so I’m not sure what it could be.
Did you add any customizations to the theme? Any custom code added?
I did a quick Google search and saw it happen to another WP User, but their issue was due to a Plugin Conflict, and they were using a different theme. So I would check your Plugins to see if any of them are conflicting with your Categories. You can deactivate each one and see if the Categories start working again.December 31, 2016 at 8:41 am #20238
Well, i’ve added something in the function.php but i erase those changes and it’s still the same. So i ve added it again.
I even deactivated the plugins but the error 500 is still there. To be honest i don t really know what it could be… Based on the log i think that index.php can t retrieve the file that is looking for, wp-blog-header.php, but Optimal theme does t have it..
Any idea? ThanksJanuary 1, 2017 at 2:42 pm #20239
Still not sure what it is, I’ve never seen that happen before. I don’t think the Optimal theme itself would cause an issue like that to happen since it’s only a Child theme. Child themes in most cases should only affect the design unless you add something that alters the functionality of WordPress or the Genesis Framework.
Have you tried searching Google, or WordPress.org forums to see if someone else had a similar issue? I tried myself but didn’t see that much show up. I’d try searching to see what you come up with.
If anyone else had an experience with an issue like this, please feel free to share any solutions!
