How to fix the Fatal error: Call to undefined function the_content_limit() in the Wordpress Revolution Theme

A friend of mine decided to Join the Wordpress Revolution and purchase the Wordpress Revolution Theme. Overall, he was very happy with the theme. After all, you can’t do a Google search for “Best Wordpress Magazine Theme” without seeing Revolution come up.

However, he had a small problem when he first installed the theme, which turned out to no fault of Revolution and very easy to fix. Upon changing to his shiny, new theme, he got the below error message:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function the_content_limit()

The fix was dead simple. All he had to do was install and activate the Limit Content plugin that comes with the Revolution Theme. That’s it. That’s the fix.

Sometimes the best solutions are the easiest. After activating the plugin, everything worked smoothly and the Revolution Theme is just plain gorgeous.

If you would like to Take Your Blog to a Higher Level I would highly recommend the Revolution Theme.

    I have a different theme, and I seem to be having problems with this still. I uploaded the included plugin and I can’t find it to activate it. I tried searching for a newer version of the plugin, but the author’s site is down and it’s not in the plugin section of Wordpress.org.

    Could someone send me the file(s) or direct me toward where I can get theme?

    My website is set up as a Wordpress.org blog. When I uploaded a new version of the wp-visitors plug in, I got a fatal error message. I tried to log into my dashboard, but I am unable to do so. Now my website has warning lines and there is a fatal error message along the bottom.

    How do I gain access to the dashboard? I want to uninstall the plug in and hope that solves the problem.

    I will cut and paste one of the messages my website is now showing:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function geoip_open() in /data/18/1/42/109/1857924/user/2017336/htdocs/blogsite/wp-content/plugins/wp-visitors.php on line 95

    I would truly appreciate help with this issue. Thank you.
