    I’ve encountered a problem installing Aegaeus WP theme with NextScripts SNAP plugin enabled (blank screen, even admin page stops working immediately on your theme activation).

    Looking into PHP error log I’ve found this:
    PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare toolbar_link_to_mypage() (previously declared in <not relevant>/wp-content/plugins/social-networks-auto-poster-facebook-twitter-g/inc/nxs_functions_adv.php:114) in <not relevant>/wp-content/themes/AegaeusWP/functions.php on line 409

    So I figured you use a function from WordPress tutorial with unchanged name and so are the NextScripts’ developers. And they conflict.

    The solution is simple: change lines 399-400 of functions.php to read like this:
    add_action( ‘admin_bar_menu’, ‘toolbar_link_to_mypage_awp’, 140 );
    function toolbar_link_to_mypage_awp( $wp_admin_bar ) {

    Note the “_awp” suffix “personalizing” your function name.

    With this change everything works. Please fix this problem in the next release of your theme so everyone will benefit from increased compatibility. Thanks!
