Script Error line appears on top of all 3 of my dashboards! (6 posts)

    I just installed a slew of plugins (recommended ones mind you) on 3 of my blogs. They all have this type of error on the top of the dashboard window-

    Warning: preg_match() expects parameter 2 to be string, array given in /home/jmcgovar/public_html/wp-includes/class.wp-scripts.php on line 117

    It makes me feel bad about myself. Can anyone offer some insight?
    Thank you!

    Same here, was one of the plugins Featured-Slider?

    Yes that's one I have too!

  4. Try turning it off. The plugin may not be compatible with the latest WP.

    Thanks but disabling the plugin is hardly a solution! Does anyone know where we could look for a fix so we can continue to use the plugin, I have emailed its author.

    Didn't say it was THE solution. It's step one of the solution.

    First you disable the plugin. Did that work? Good! Now you know what's breaking! Next step is to tag the posts with the plugin.

    Is it this one? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-featured-content-slider/ If so, you add the tag wp-featured-content-slider to your post. You also email the author. Remember, there are a LOT of similarly named plugins, so you have to be specific sometimes. It always helps to actually LINK to the plugin :) Disambiguate.

    Check to see when the plugin was last updated. If it was pre 3.0, you may need to find a new plugin. If you MUST use this one, and the author doesn't help, check to see if preg_match() is in the plugin files and maybe you can sort out why it's broken.

    It's debugging 101, though, to turn it off and verify your guess is correct :)
