    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!
