    In the incoming links dashboard, following error is incoming:

    Fatal error: Please call SimplePie_Cache::create() instead of the constructor in /home8/XXXXXX/public_html/restoretherepublic/wp-includes/class-feed.php on line 13

    This doesnt seem to be causing any issues, but Im a bit concerned. Anyone familiar with this error at all?

    Thanks In Advance

    Make sure you upgraded all the files. Upgrade them manually if necessary.

    For people like me who Googled their way here but then had to find the solution by them self... :)

    I used SimplePie in my theme. I used the following line:
    require_once(WP_CONTENT_DIR.'/themes/feedmeastraycat2/libs/simplepie.inc');

    Which I changed to:
    require_once(ABSPATH.'/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php');

    Tadaaaa.

    Thanks, @feedmeastraycat ! I had the same problem with SimplePie on the Accessible News Ticker (ANT) plugin, which uses a copy of its own SimplePie (which has the same problem). Changing the included line as per your suggestion fixed ANT for me!

    God bless you both for figuring this out. Going to suggest an update to ANT.
