I tried to create a my own function call Test from a simple plugin php file (list categories Plugin) , but when I called it. It showed error ” Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function… “

<?php
/* 
Plugin Name: List Categories
*/
class ListCategories{
   static function list_categories($atts, $content = null) {
    $atts = shortcode_atts(
      array(
        'show_option_all'    => '',
        'orderby'            => 'name',
        'order'              => 'ASC',
        'style'              => 'list',
        'show_count'         => 0,
        'hide_empty'         => 1,
        'use_desc_for_title' => 1,
        'child_of'           => 0,
        'feed'               => '',
        'feed_type'          => '',
        'feed_image'         => '',
        'exclude'            => '',
        'exclude_tree'       => '',
        'include'            => '',
        'hierarchical'       => 1,
        'title_li'           => __( 'Categories' ),
        'show_option_none'   => __( 'No categories' ),
        'number'             => null,
        'echo'               => 1,
        'depth'              => 0,
        'current_category'   => 0,
        'pad_counts'         => 0,
        'taxonomy'           => 'category',
        'walker'             => null
      ), $atts
    );

    test();
    ob_start();
    wp_list_categories($atts);
    $output = ob_get_contents();       
    ob_end_clean();    
    return $output; 
  }

  function test(){
    //Do something
  }
}

add_shortcode( 'categories', array('ListCategories', 'list_categories') );

Why I couldnt call the function? I tried update Wordpress but it still didnt work. Thanks!

In your code there’s this part:

test();
ob_start();
wp_list_categories($atts);
$output = ob_get_contents();  

But I really doubt that global function called test exists on your page.

There is a function called test in your class, but it’s not static (so you can’t call it from static context unless you change it to static function test(){...}), and you should call it with self::test();
