My WordPress site seems to be running fine, except that trying to go to the plugins page gives the following error:
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare _verifyactivate_widgets() (previously declared in .../public_html/wp-content/themes/news-child/functions.php:75) in .../public_html/wp-content/themes/news/functions.php on line 452
Deleting the theme so that WP reverts to the orignal does not help, it keeps trying to go to that functions.php. I cannot deactivate the plugins either (since the page is inaccessible). Ideas on what the cause/fix is?
