Cheatin' uh?

Everytime I attempt to open the “customize” tab, it opens instead to a page with the words “Cheatin’ uh?” on it. This tab worked just yesterday, and I can’t think of anything I’ve done since then that would cause this.

My website appears normally when viewed online, I’m just not able to edit it because of this error.


This error can occur when a logged in user is trying to do an operation without having sufficient permissions, and it is WP error. Also error can be present if wp-config.php file have misplaced constants in it or when you are using custom frameworks (maybe within some other theme that you have installed).

You can try to:

  1. Disable all plugins one by one and try every time
  2. Reinstall Sydney theme and try (just delete and install again)
  3. Activate some default WP theme and try
  4. Reinstall wordpress
  5. Update WP to latest version if you didn’t

Best Regards
