used this type of code in a PHP image-resizing script. Once you pasted this code in your theme file, the query uses the first tag of the post to fetch related posts. In the above example code , Six related posts are displayed. You can change this number.

In case if you are not satisfied from the above solution than The tutorial “Display Thumbnails For Related Posts in WordPress” explains to add thumbnails to your related post links with Yet Another Related Posts Plugin.

How to Solve WordPress Error: Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by()

Sometime when you are trying to modify you theme file or try to write an code entry, just in case you left empty space in your theme file  and chances are you have messed up your wp-config.php leaving some unnecessary spaces inside.

You get a warning message on your browser that says:

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at

If you ever run across this error (or warning) in your WordPress with this message, Here is the simple solution for that:

Reason and Solution:

The reason behind this error may be there are spaces, new lines, or other garbage before an opening <?php tag or after a closing ?> tag, typically in wp-config.php. This error can be occur due to some other files too. So carefully check the error massage because it will list the specific file name. To overcome this error please follow the steps below.

  1. Download the wp-config.php or file mentioned in the error message.
  2. Open that file with your favourite editora or in plain text editor.
  3. The only thing you need to do is to clear all spaces before “<?php” and after “?>

In case above given  solution do not solve your problem, than checkout these guide lines.

Check the encoding of the file and save .php file under ASCII format . If the file is encoded as UTF-8 with BOM (Byte Order Mark), the BOM is seen as a character which starts the output, so make sure the first 3 bytes Byte Order Mark is deleted.

Other issues that might cause that error are you may be using function wp_ redirect() for redirection or trying to use a header redirect after the header that error message will show up. So better use javascript redirection if needed.

There is well explained interpretation about this error message on WordPress FAQ_Troubleshooting as follow:

If the error message states: Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /path/blog/wp-config.php:34) in /path/blog/wp-login.php on line 42, then the problem is at line #34 of wp-config.php, not line #42 of wp-login.php. In this scenario, line #42 of wp-login.php is the victim. It is being affected by the excess whitespace at line #34 of wp-config.php.

If the error message states: Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /path/wp-admin/admin-header.php:8) in /path/wp-admin/post.php on line 569, then the problem is at line #8 of admin-header.php, not line #569 of post.php. In this scenario, line #569 of post.php is the victim. It is being affected by the excess whitespace at line #8 of admin-header.php.

At the end I would advice you to make a backup of any files you edit.
