  4. Add 1 egg beaten and blended with milk. Dig a hole in the quinoa to the bottom of pot and pour egg in, stirring every 30 seconds until egg has cooked and blended evenly into quinoa.

NHP Options Framework – Fatal Error

NHP Options is a great plugin but it BREAKS YOUR WORDPRESS TONS if:

1) You try to activate the plugin without adding the activation code in your functions.php file:

 get_template_part('nhp', 'options'); 

2) If you try to use it with certain themes that call a similarly named function: of_admin_head

You see THEME CANNOT BE ACTIVATED FATAL ERROR    or     Cannot redeclare of_admin_head() (previously declared in 

To fix, go to your wordpress PLUGINS folder -> options-framework -> open options-framework.php -> search (cmd+F on mac or cntl+F on PC) for of_admin_head (i found it on line 316 and 319) and rename them both to anything else. I just used of_admin_head_1. Save and reupload file to your plugins, this will resolve the conflict.

note: you will have to remember to re-update this if you upgrade the theme.. so maybe highlight the text where you changed and take a screenshot to keep for memory!

3) You try and SWITCH WORDPRESS THEMES with NHP Options activated. IT WILL BREAK YOUR SITE.

First you have to deactivate the plugin, THEN switch themes, copy over: nhp-options.php + options folder, and reactivate. If you have accidentally broken your site before having a chance to deactivate, simply access your site via FTP -> navigate to plugins folder, rename options-framework to anything else temporarily (like options-framework1) and that will let you back into wordpress because you changed the folder name so it wont be able to access it.

WooCommerce PRODUCTS menu disappears with Custom Post Types Plugin (Conflict)

I’ve racked my brain over this twice now for lengths at a time (I forgot the solution from the first time). When I add a custom post type using WP-Types or Custom Post Types UI, suddenly the ability to add products to WooCommerce disappears. I thought this was a plugin conflict at first, or possibly a conflict with my WP Roots Bootstrap theme. But NO!

*SIMPLEST SOLUTION*:

WooCommerce PRODUCTS menu disappears because it is using the same MENU POSITION number as the default custom post type menu position. WooCommerce could probably fix this painful headache if they chose a different number! So, double check your custom post type settings, and try a different number (between 5-100).. like 20, or 100. Play with it:

Setting the “Menu position” (integer) for each custom post type:

Default: null – defaults to below Comments
5 – below Posts
10 – below Media
15 – below Links
20 – below Pages
25 – below comments
60 – below first separator
65 – below Plugins
70 – below Users
75 – below Tools
80 – below Settings
100 – below second separator
