Hi – our plugin performs an IF (!function_exists(‘tgmpa’)) prior to declaring the function.

The other plugin should also do this – please notify the authors of that plugin that they have coded this function definition poorly.

The actual code from tgmpa (a function for handling plugin updates) includes this if (!function_exists…) code so I’m not sure why they code this in that way.

Alternatively, you could add the if statement yourself around their function declaration by altering their code.
