How to change the Start Here link from the theme options

  • What: All iThemes themes come with a set of theme options in the WordPress dashboard. The first option is a "Start Here" link that will show a generic page with several related (and unrelated) video tutorials. To unbrand the theme, or to brand it as your own, you can change the page that the Start Here links to, to any page you desire. The highlighted line indicates where the URL is defined.
  • How: Add the following code to your child themes functions.php.
// Change the name Start Here 
function it_modify_tutorial_menu_name($name) {
    return "This is MY menu";
add_filter( 'it_tutorials_menu_name', 'it_modify_tutorial_menu_name' );

// Change the URL it links to
function it_modify_tutorials_url($url) {
   return "";
add_filter( 'it_tutorials_filter_url', 'it_modify_tutorials_url' );

PHP Error messages

Error message: Out of memory (allocated 14680064) (tried to allocate 4864 bytes) (values may differ)

  • Cause: the message refers to a PHP error, and indicates that the memory limit size in the php configuration is too low.
  • Solution: Increase the php memory limit. If you can't do this, you should contact your hosting provider and ask them to increase the memory limit. They will know what it's about.

Error message: Call to undefined function function_name()

  • Cause: WordPress, the theme, or a plugin tries to execute a function that does not exist.
  • Solution: Depending on where the error occurs (in a WordPress function, a Theme function or a Plugin function) update WordPress, the theme or the plugin to the latest version.

Featured Images

Images not showing

  • Cause: This occurs typically (but not necessarilty!) after upgrading WordPress. The value for the uploads location in the WordPress settings has become corrupted, and shows a long value such as for instance
  • Solution: Make sure that the value for your "uploads folder" is as recommended: wp-content/uploads.
    • In WordPress 3+, find this value in wp-dashboard > Settings > Media
    • In older WordPress versions, look in wp-dashboard > Settings > Miscellaneous
