I believe the error is informing you that some content has already been sent
back to the client.  Once any content has been sent back, the headers have
already been set and you can't subsequently call header().

For an easy fix, you should be able to turn on output buffering for the
request and all of the output will be held until the entire page is finished

Alternatively, you can sift through you code looking for any output (even a
single whitespace) that's present before the call to header in  the menu.php
file referenced in your error.
