    I’m working from within a WP multisite setup. I created a new subsite and attempt to activate a child theme downloaded from the StudioPress website and I get the following error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare _verify_activate_widget() (previously declared in /mnt/data/users/c/chipsmith/nwtechanddesign.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/education/functions.php:100) in /mnt/data/users/c/chipsmith/nwtechanddesign.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/genesis/functions.php on line 47

    This actually happens with a few different child themes. Anythoughts?

    Do you have the Genesis Framework downloaded in your themes folder? Do you have it active sitewide?

    It seems to be in relation to themes that have functions that are duplicated in the Genesis Framework functions.

    Try switching the theme to one of the default themes to see if you have the same problem. Also can  you share the URL to your website.

    I actually can’t even get the Genesis Sample child theme to work. I am able to get the Genesis framework/theme to work.

    That shouldn’t be happening because I have a multi site set up and I didn’t have that problem with the different child themes. Deactivate your plugins and let me know if you still have the problem.

    Interesting. This is a new subsite, so no individual plugins are installed. I did go through and deactivate all the network plugins and no luck there either.

    Even rolling back to v1.8 of the framework and the sample child theme didn’t make a difference.
