Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Atahualpa 3.0 Theme Options > Page Menu Bar - Page Error on Save

Exclamation Atahualpa 3.0 Theme Options > Page Menu Bar - Page Error on Save

When I click the "Save changes" button at the bottom of this page, the browser (I have tried IE, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome) spins, and spins, and spins. Eventually I get an error that varies by browser. This is the URL it is trying to load:

"http://www.<my domain>.com/wp-admin/themes.php?page=functions.php"

In the case of Firefox, I get a "Problem loading page" error. Basically, it times out.

BTW - I am on WP 2.7

Actually this is happening all over the theme admin screens now. It just sits there for ever and eventually times out. Hard to say whether its the theme, my hosting provider, or something else.

Yeah - I am at the point where my changes are no longer persisted. Almost every save times out. Never happened in Atahualpa 2.

HA! Now the "Atahualpa Theme Options" page won't load at all! Sorry man, but this thing just isn't ready for prime time. Having said that, I fully intend to donate and I will continue to test it in a demo sandbox I have setup.

It works rather quick on my (small) server with a standard 32 MB PHP setting. It sure isn't a lightweight theme though. May I ask where you host or what type of hosting plan you have. I want this to work everywhere and would like to evaluate where I am at regarding resource usage on average hosting plans

Sure. GoDaddy - Basic Linux Plan.


Do you load every option value from the database and build up the interface to every option on every page when a person clicks on "Atahualpa Theme Options" under "Appearance" then just essentially hide all of the form elements at which the user isn't looking as they click the buttons at the top? In other words, is this basically one page of form elements that render simultaneously?

And the logical second question... do you do a massive update of ALL fields from all screens each time I click Save?

No changes save - no matter how small. Is there a way to log the SQL that runs when you try to Save so I can run the command manually?

Whenever you save the options all options get saved, into the same table. That's how it is done in Atahualpa 2 and many other themes. Whether that is "massive" I leave that to you. If it were separate admin pages, you'd have to wait for each admin page to load when switching between the tabs.

Atahualpa 3 sure has a lot of options to do it this way, but let's not forget that these aren't frontend pageviews. Not saying that it couldn't be done better, but the saving action only happens when you the admin press save, and once the theme is configured you probably won't click save all that often.
