Can anyone tell me what this error message means, and how to fix it?
Fatal error: Redefinition of parameter $_ in /var/www/costacity.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/vantage/includes/reviews.php on line 71
It came up yesterday, and I dont know how to fix it, I have tried to reinstall a backup, but it does not help.

WordPress theme related error.
What has changed recently? Is this the most recent version of this “Vantage” theme, if so was it updated before or after the error message showed up. Is this theme’s version compatible with WordPress’ (itself) installed version?
Do you use a so called “child theme”? If so, was there a new plugin installed, or the
fuctions.phpfile edited recently?May 23, 2017 at 2:02 am #255111
I tried to install the plugin Popup maker, and then it crashed. I dont know if it has something to do with that, but that was the only thing I did.May 23, 2017 at 2:03 am #255112
I have deleted the plugin again, but still does not workMay 23, 2017 at 2:41 am #255113
Have you tried temporary switching themes like, for example, to WP-twenty-something-(six/seven)teen theme?May 23, 2017 at 2:43 am #255114
To troubleshoot maybe try a fresh downloaded version of your theme (rename it to something else: in the dashboard switch to that theme), temporary disable all plugins, and enable them back one by one: see when things start breaking again.May 23, 2017 at 3:06 am #255115
After trying all this, and the error is still there, start looking at the server, or server configuration issues. Not an expert there myself, but things that could have changed without you knowing (when on shared hosting) on a lower level, are for example, updates to Apache, or PHP which are not compatible with your current theme’s version.May 23, 2017 at 3:19 pm #255134May 24, 2017 at 12:05 am #255143
I had someone to help me, so I must say that I dont know what he did. But thanks for your support in here…
But now all my listings and events on the site is not working, but the site http://www.costacity.com is online again, thats a start :-)May 24, 2017 at 1:15 am #255144
Good, looks like the theme was reinstalled.
For the “listings and events” is he still helping you?
Otherwise for DIY look for templates in the backup of your (child-)theme and copy them back in and upload. Look for templates like
page-listings.phpto get those custom loops back.
