I am redesigning a template. So I am trying to show a holding page till the redesign process is done.

I ever used following function for the purpose on many other projects and it's redirected to the holding.php if the user is not an Admin

add_action( 'template_redirect', function() { if( !current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) ) { include( get_template_directory() . '/holding.php' ); exit; } });

But when I try to put this code on my current redesigning project it's shows a blank page if I go to the home page or any other page. if I remove the above code from function.php the site works fine.

And I've noted that this current projects' all php file has /** * @package WordPress * @subpackage Starkers */

my theme folder contains WordPress, Starkers too I thought it's commented out. so it does nothing.

Those lines are included every files such as index.php, function.php, etc

Why it's showing a blank page if I add the redirection function as I mentioned below.?? Any help will be appreciated.

[UPDATE] when I enable the debug i got the following lines.

Have you tried this:

<?php
add_action( 'template_redirect', 'wp138320_template_redirect' );

function wp138320_template_redirect()
{
    if ( ! current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) )
    {
        include( get_template_directory() . '/holding.php' );
        exit;
    }
}
?>

I'm currently working on a site that has issues with hooking into actions/filters like that too, changing it to something like the code above did the trick in that install.

---- edit: Using the hook @Pieter mentions:

<?php
add_filter( 'template_include', 'wp138320_template_include' );

function wp138320_template_include( $template )
{
    if ( ! current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) )
    {
        if ( '' != locate_template( 'holding.php' ) )
            return 'holding.php'; // holding.php should be in the root of your theme's folder
    }

    return $template;
}
?>
  • don't use template_redirect to call a template, rather use template_include. See this post wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/137247/… – Pieter Goosen Mar 18 '14 at 9:43
  • @Hiranthi Thanks a lots.. it's working like a charm.. but how.?? I do not understand.. function is same.. is not it? – Riffaz Starr Mar 18 '14 at 10:08
  • @PieterGoosen thanks for that! I really need to dive into core more often.. :) – Hiranthi Mar 18 '14 at 12:57
  • @RiffazStarr yes, the function is the same, but the way the function is being called (the way we're hooking into the action) is different. – Hiranthi Mar 18 '14 at 12:58
