Plugins search error - number_format in functions.php line 155 (10 posts)

    Hi I'm hoping someone can help. I cannot search for or install new plugins. This is only happening with one of my many wordpress installs. I have disabled all plugins and then tested - resulting in the same error message.

    Warning: number_format() expects parameter 1 to be double, string given in .../wp-includes/functions.php on line 155

    I've looked through the forums but can't find anything up-to-date. Any advice appreciated.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Are you using Woo Themes Helper plugin?

    That plugin has been implicated as the cause of this error. Try resetting the plugins folder.

    I have now "reset the plugins folder" by
    1) changing the folder name to 'plugins.hold'
    2) visiting wp-admin and the plugins page -where the error persisted even though it said no plugins were installed
    3) changing the folder name back to "plugins"

    So I have no plugins activated but the error persists.

    WOW - that's intense. Basically,
    - deactivate Woo Themes Helper Plugin
    - you can now use the search even though errors are there
    - possibly change a value in the DB
    - and/or wait for woothemes to publish an update to their plugin

    Thank you.
