I had the same type of problem. ( i think)
I had one main page (say index.php) that had a bare bones html page. No
functions or anything.
Then i had separate pages that would be included only if i was using them
(like, say, a category.php for displaying categories, then products.php for
I had a function called printlist(); that would create a drop down menu
with categories/subcategories; this was in both category.php and
products.php. Niether of those files were included at the same time though,
and it'd give me the redeclare error... what i did was rename the function
in each file (like for category.php, rename it to printlist1(); and then in
products.php rename it to printlist2();... this is a quick fix). Let me
know if this was any help :)
