WP 3.2: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated (7 posts)

    Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated

    I have a full handful of clients returning this error after upgrading. The error *usually* comes up with references to wp-settings.php, but occasionally seems to reference other files. Checking the referenced lines in question, kludging them doesn't seem to fix the error; it just returns a different line number, throws a WSOD, or another PHP error (usually the headers already sent error).

    I've just rolled them back to WP 3.1.4 as a stopgap, but any helpful suggestions for troubleshooting this problem would be appreciated.

    I have the same errors.

    My errors display in Dashboard, "incoming links", "Plugins" and "WordPress blog":
    Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in ...\wordpress\wp-includes\class-simplepie.php on line 738

    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 Twenty Eleven 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.

    This is WP version 3.2, and the other is WP 3.2.1 and none are documented to be version specific or not yet. Also neither threads were opened by me.
