Hi, first thanks for your great plugin. However, for some themes (Origami in my case) edit pages breaks:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare aesop_shortcodes_blob() (previously declared in /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web/wp-content/plugins/aesop-story-engine/admin/includes/generator_blob.php:4) in /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web/wp-content/plugins/aesop-story-engine/admin/includes/generator_blob.php on line 66

When I switch to twenty thirteen, everything works fine. Editing posts works fine for both themes.

If I you need more information, just let me know.


That's a first


I suggest re-installing


Scratch that, I have pulled down the theme and have replicated the issue. This only affects this theme. And this only affects editing pages.

I've isolated the issue to the plugin activation function within that themes functions.php file. If I comment it out completely, post editing comes back. I'm not sure what they are doing there, but whatever they are doing, is angering Aesop. Not sure if there's much I can do on my end at all.

// the include on line 11
include get_template_directory() . '/extras/plugin-activation/plugin-activation.php';

// and function on functions.php line 88
if(!defined('SITEORIGIN_PANELS_VERSION') && !siteorigin_plugin_activation_is_activating('siteorigin-panels')) {
        include get_template_directory().'/extras/panels/panels.php';

Thanks for your effort! I'll give it to the Origami support to fix it.
