PHP Fatal Error in theme after upgrade to 1.2.10

Reported by: wendellh's profile WendellH Owned by:
Milestone: 1.2.10 Priority: normal
Severity: blocker Version:
Component: Core Keywords:


Upon upgrading from 1.2.9 to 1.2.10, during auto-activation, the site stopped functioning (BP was never activated). Refreshing caused a 500 error in the admin area and just a blank white screen on the public side. The error.log produced the following error (filenames edited for privacy reasons):

PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function bp_page_title() in /home/sitename/public_html/wp-content/themes/themename/header.php on line 9

Note that I am using the latest BuddyBoss theme, with a child theme. So I removed the child theme via FTP and then tried accessing the site again. This time, I received the same error but in the themes/buddyboss/header.php file, so it appears that it's not the child theme's fault.

So then I reviewed the default BP theme included in 1.2.10 and compared it to the BuddyBoss theme to ensure BuddyBoss was using the bp_page_title() tag properly. From my limited knowledge, it looked correct. I have attached the header.php file from the BuddyBoss theme to this ticket for your review.

From all I can tell, it appears to be specific to BuddyPress, hence this ticket.

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

During upgrade, It seems your buddypress got deactivated causing the error. Please use ftp to rename your theme , then login to dashboard and activate the buddypress and finally you can rename back your theme and activate.
