[resolved] Accessible News Ticker (ANT) doesn't work with SimplePie (1 post)

    Hi!

    If anyone is still using the Accessible News Ticker (ANT) plugin, it now dumps an error like this on the Dashboard (under Incoming Links and Plugins, and possibly elsewhere):

    Fatal error: Please call SimplePie_Cache::create() instead of the constructor in /XXXXXXXXX/class-feed.php on line 13

    The solution, based on this forum post, is simple: you just need to open accessible-news-ticker/ant.php, and on line 46 or so, where you have:

    include_once("includes/simplepie.inc");

    Comment it out and replace with:

    require_once(ABSPATH.'/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php');

    Thanks to feedmeastraycat for the tip!
