    I had a problem accessing the options page (if this is what you are referring to). The problem seems to be that the path to the userinterface.php file is incomplete. To resolve it, I went to the wp-content/themes/magaling/ folder and edited the functions.php file as follows:

    Find the following line of code:

    require get_theme_root() . ‘/’ . $shortname . ‘/options/userinterface.php’;

    Change it to:
    require get_theme_root() . ‘/’ . $shortname . ‘/magaling/options/userinterface.php’;

    The only thing you are changing is adding “magaling/” before the word “options” in the file path.

    I hope this helps!
