_block_get_cache_id Assemble the cache_id to use for a given block.
_block_rehash Update the 'blocks' DB table with the blocks currently exported by modules.
_block_themes_access Menu item access callback - only admin or enabled themes can be accessed

Constants

Namesort descending Description
BLOCK_CACHE_GLOBAL The block is the same for every user on every page where it is visible.
BLOCK_CACHE_PER_PAGE The block can change depending on the page being viewed.
BLOCK_CACHE_PER_ROLE The block can change depending on the roles the user viewing the page belongs to. This is the default setting, used when the block does not specify anything.
BLOCK_CACHE_PER_USER The block can change depending on the user viewing the page. This setting can be resource-consuming for sites with large number of users, and thus should only be used when BLOCK_CACHE_PER_ROLE is not sufficient.
BLOCK_NO_CACHE The block should not get cached. This setting should be used:
BLOCK_REGION_NONE Denotes that a block is not enabled in any region and should not be shown.

Just uploaded my site today and I get this error message, only problem I've run into so far. Could anyone help me out possibly? Thanks in advance.
