login page error -- cannot modify header information

i have a client's wordpress site that the login page throws an error.  It shows two "Warning: Cannot modify header information" errors at the top of the login.. when I do login, it shows a bunch of them and that is it (see pasted text at bottom).

the site is http://www.francescastanfill.com.  

I do have a full backupbuddy backup for it on my Amazon S3, from a few days ago and from a month ago, but i am hoping somebody can see the error messages and have a quick solution rather than do a full restore, which I've never done.

I'm hoping it is a plugin issue.. and I'm guessing i'm going to have to remove them to see if the error goes away... but it does reference the functions.php file....

It's most likely a plugin problem.  If you are using a caching plugin, clear the cache and then disable all plugins and see if the messages come back.  If not, enable plugins one at a time and test between each activation to see which one is causing the issue.

In case the problem could be fixed in the theme's functions.php file, could you post the code from it here?

yikes.. and i sometimes get the following error in the website.. It looks very similar.  Tell me if you get the following error:
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/stanfill/public_html/wp-content/themes/prose/functions.php:1) in /home/stanfill/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 875

Here is the functions.php code..

I'd try removing the section at the end under "Additions by Marknetgroup" and see if it makes any difference.

(And yes, I saw that error message when I viewed your site here: )http://www.francescastanfill.com/wp-admin/

I don't see either error on the frontend. I only suggest trying the removal of that code at the end because it looks to be the last custom code addition. The only other section I'd guess on is line 11 - 14 about the custom background. It looks as if it's possible to be part of a backend function that might be conflicting with something.

ok, so i figured it out.. crazy... it wasn't a plugin at all...

it was trailing white space at the end of the functions.php file... geez...
