I’m fairly new to WordPress & PHP/CSS in general. I love the epix theme, but I have a problem, or maybe two:
- On the Admin console, and on certain plugin display pages (the “Photo Gallery” plugin for example) I am getting “couldn’t connect to host” messages. I have tried to reinstall WordPress, and also the theme, but with no luck. Can someone point me in the right direction?
- The standard Media Library in thumbnail mode, as well as the “Media File Manager Advanced” plugin cannot load the media files when the theme is loaded.
Both these problems disappear when the theme is changed to a default one.
I have tried deactivating all plugins, but as long as the theme is active the problems persist.
Hours of Googling have not found me any solutions, and I am sure that it is due to some configuration or installation issue, but I have reached a dead-end. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
For anyone interested to see the “couldn’t connect to host” appearing in the “Photo Gallery” plugin, please look at the “Galleries” link on my blog:
http://www.sp8photo.com Go right down to one of the images in lightbox mode (I know the thumbnails aren’t working at the moment). The message appears at the top of the lightbox.
I deactivated all except:
Advanced Excerpt (recommended for your theme)
Polylang (I dare not deactivate it because of the work of translation)
WPBakery Visual Composer (as you suggested).
I now get the following error:
couldn’t connect to host
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /srv/disk7/1855646/www/sp8photo.com/wp-content/themes/ePix/lib/adm/inc/theme-updates/class-envato-wordpress-theme-upgrader.php on line 200
and the media library still does not work.
I reactivated the Envato WordPress Toolkit hoping to get rid of the second error, but it did not go away. Last week Envato refused to help with this problem.
Reactivating the other plugins got rid of the Envato ‘invalid argument’ error, but left me the ‘couldn’t connect’ error.
I am not sure how safe it is to deactivate the Polylang plugin. If you want I can try, but I have spent quite some time setting up the multilingual aspect, so I would not like to jeopardise this.
Finally: my initial WordPress installation was done using the default installer provided by my hoster. I have used the WordPress ‘reinstall’ functionality several times to try to solve this problem, as well as updating to the latest version when it came out last week. If it could help, I could try to reinstall from scratch, but I will need to find some tutorial to avoid losing my existing content.
