    When I click to import sample data I get the following msg (here’s a link to a graphic of msg):

    I have gone into the wp-config.php to increase the memory for php – I added this to the bottom:

    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’64M’);

    what can I do to get the sample data with all the templates?

    ***UPDATE: When I make a change in the theme options (eg: change the colour scheme) I get the same fatal error message***


    Hey nikicampbell,

    The link to the image isn’t working so I’m not sure what the message is. Can you increase the memory limit further and see if that allows for the theme to work properly?




    Hi – sorry about that – i re-installed wordpress, theme, & plug-in because it was all just not working. Here is the graphic

    and when I try to make style changes to the theme:

    I think that this is largely a memory problem. I created a php.ini file, with the following in it:

    memory_limit = 96M

    upload_max_filesize = 10M

    post_max_size = 10M

    I also made a php info document to see what the memory allotment is:

    I’m in touch w/the server as well to see what they can do on their end – but if you have any advice that would be great



    Get a different host, this is a buyer’s market since there are so many competitors driving down prices.

    customizing the php.ini file is a tedious job that requires expertise. A misconfiguration here could easily mean a huge difference in loading time for the page.




    Thanks! I agree (@nick) – unfortunately it is for a client of mine and they won’t be switching anytime soon. But they’ve resolved it and the theme is fantastic!


    Hi nikicampbell,

    Glad that this is resolved. :)
