Fatal Error

Hi I’m running a WordPress blog site and added the following code to the functions.php page and clicked view page.

//call a function just before the query runs to fetch posts
add_action(‘pre_get_posts’,‘change_post_type’);

function change_post_type($var) {
if(is_category()) {
$var->query_vars[‘post_type’] = ‘any’;
//it will change the value to ‘any’ from the default value of ;post’;
//can be any, attachment, page, post, or revision.
//‘any’ retrieves any type except revisions.
}
}

I got the following error!

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare change_post_type() (previously declared in /home/julwre/WiredVoltage.com/wp-content/plugins/map-categories-to-pages/map-categories-to-pages.php:72) in /home/julwre/WiredVoltage.com/wp-content/themes/ifeature/functions.php on line 349

I FTP’d to my Dream Host directory and tried to open the file but got the following error:

550 /WiredVoltage.com/wp-content/themes/ifeature/’. get_template_directory_uri() .’/images/home.png: No such file or director

I was assuming I would be able to open the file to undo the changes I made earlier?

Please help

Many thanks

First, in PHP function names must be unique.

Second it appears you tried to pass PHP code as the filename to the FTP program.

The code should be this:

//call a function just before the query runs to fetch posts
add_action('pre_get_posts','wiredvoltage_change_post_type');

function wiredvoltage_change_post_type($var) {
if(is_category()) {
$var->query_vars['post_type'] = 'any';
//it will change the value to 'any' from the default value of ;post';
//can be any, attachment, page, post, or revision.
//'any' retrieves any type except revisions.
}
}

Which file are you editing?

/home/julwre/WiredVoltage.com/wp-content/themes/ifeature/functions.php

That should still work if you download it from FTP.
