Fatal error: Cannot redeclare mfn_sortable()
  • HI,
    I had to migrate to a new server and now the theme gives me this error and it doesn't load the styles

    <b>Fatal error</b>:  Cannot redeclare mfn_sortable() (previously declared in ...functions.php:35) in <b>/....functions.php</b> on line <b>36</b><br />
    Any ideas?

    Thank you

  • The hosting provider has looked in to this and they said it's theme related.
    The new server is running PHP version 5.3.28. This is the only website out of 35 on my server that is broken

  • I am having this problem as well. I am running Wordpress Multisite. 

    I needed to hack functions.php in the theme. What I did to get around it was by wrapping the function in a conditional. 

    (!function_exists('mfn_sortable')) {
      function mfn_sortable() {

    I also needed to change this from "require" to "require_once"

    THEME_DIR . '/muffin-options/theme-options.php' );   

    I'm running the following (php-fpm):

    PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.4 (cli) (built: Sep  4 2014 06:56:34) 
    Copyright (c) 1997-2014 The PHP Group

        with Zend OPcache v7.0.3, Copyright (c) 1999-2014, by Zend Technologies

    I don't get any more server errors, but the theme still doesn't look quite right, so I'm not sure if this is a fix.


  • Loading this URL (/wp-content/themes/pindol/style.php?ver=1.5.1) causes a blank page (server errors are turned off). This is all I see in the logs:

    [26-Sep-2014 07:40:01 UTC] PHP Fatal error:  Cannot redeclare
    mfn_sortable() (previously declared in /vol/home/virtuals/wordpress/wp-content/themes/pindol/functions.php:35) in /vol/home/virtuals/wordpress/wp-content/themes/pindol/functions.php on line 36

    The "fix" above avoids the error.
