    Hello,
    I bought the appraised Revolution theme thinking it was the all inclusive solution for my business. And now its almost 5am here and I still can't figure out what I am doing wrong.

    There is this message on the front page:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function the_content_limit() in /home2/guardfin/public_html/wp-content/themes/revolution_business-10/home.php on line 43

    and I went to their forums and it says to upload the plugins, which I did and they are not showing up on my Admin... Please someone help me!!!

    The site is the Second link on my signature

    Anything helps.

    Could you paste the home.php file code here, so that we can check with any problem.

    On line 43:
    <?php the_content_limit(75, "Read more"); ?>

    Try to remove that once and check.

    Are you sure you installed the plugins properly? Make sure you move the limit_post.php into your plugins directory.

    okay I am going to try that. Thanks

    Just got to it... will post when I finish uploading.


    I am kind of a newb at this stuff so I don't know if I did upload all the plugins. The part I still don't get is why they ask you to upload them if the plugins are already in the /plugin files?? I'm so confused... lol

    I think I may know what's up - the plugins for the Revolution theme come with the theme, but you need to take them out of the /wp-content/themes/revolution_theme/plugins/ folder and move them to your /wp-content/plugins folder. Then they will show up on your plugins menu.

    Then of course activate, and viola! If you need any help, just shoot me a PM.

    Oh didnt notice that your plugins were still in the themes folder.
    shamus has given the correct answer, you should move them to the actual plugins folder and active them.
