    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM in /mypath/public_html/wp-content/plugins/autochimp/autochimp.php on line 841

    Hmm, that's a new one. Something to do with your version of PHP. What seems to be perfectly correct code related to the "static" keyword and the scope resolution operator ("::") when used with classes is not playing so nicely with your version. I will look into this. Do you know what version you're using by any chance?

    5.2.17

    OK, thanks. I'm testing on 5.3.15 and there are no problems. Looking more into this...

    OK, so after looking more into this, it looks like the best solution to this is to upgrade PHP to 5.3 or higher. According to this documentation, 5.2.x is no longer officially supported and users should upgrade to a newer version. However, this plugin also needs to more gracefully handle that error. I don't think there's a practical solution to fix this; would make the code much messier.

    Forced my site to use php 5.3, but then got this error:

    Fatal error: Class 'SyncBuddyPress' not found in /mypath/public_html/wp-content/plugins/autochimp/autochimp-plugins.php on line 220

    Can you confirm that you have SyncBuddyPress.php in your autochimp/plugins folder?

    Yes, it is there.

    Just to be sure, I even deleted AutoChimp completely and reinstalled from the repository and still get the same thing.

    Does this also happen as soon as you activate the plugin? Or did you go to a different admin page?

    As soon as I activate the plugin (takes the site down).

    I am having a similar issue after activating I get

    Fatal error: Class 'SyncCimy' not found in /home/content/36/11036636/html/wp-content/plugins/autochimp/autochimp-plugins.php on line 220

    Same error

    Fatal error on my site, too. At the 2.10 upgrade activation.

    Yep, installing this plugin update hosed my site. I had to rename the plugin folder to even get back into WP-admin. I'm on PHP 5.3.26 and nginx. Can't determine what the root cause is, but this plugin update should be rescinded until further testing is done.

    I installed the new update (2.10) and mailchimp no longer works on my web site. Got the following error message. (www.DxFoundation.org)

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM in /home/dxrick/dxfoundation.org/wp-content/plugins/autochimp/autochimp.php on line 841

    Please help!

    Something similar happened to me. After installing the update, my site completely crashes and I get the following error message:

    Fatal error: Class 'PublishEventsManager' not found in (file path) wp-content/plugins/autochimp/autochimp-plugins.php on line 220

    After deleting the plugin I tried a new install, with the same result as soon as the plugin was activated.

    My server is using PHP 5.3.

    Can you please re-upload the previous version (2.02) until you are able to fix this problem? Thanks.

    I posted on the plugin website the same issue. I have SyncWPMember fatal error on line 220 and SyncBuddyPress fatal error on line 220.

    Yep, hi everyone. This is some sort of path issue. Trying to find the time to fix it, but I'll get it very soon. Trying to find somewhere where I can duplicate the problem (then it will be easy!). I suggest you go back to 2.02 until this is fixed (you'll see a 2.11 release available...hopefully no more than 24 hours!).

    Installed the 2.11 version and got the same response, it could not activate. Error message "
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM in /home/dxrick/dxfoundation.org/wp-content/plugins/autochimp/autochimp.php on line 842"

    Can you post the 2.02 version within Word Press please? I need to get our main marketing too active again. Thank you.

    Now I get this (with 2.11) when I try to visit the plugin's settings tab:

    Fatal error: Class 'ContentVipersVideoQuicktags' not found in /home/menscafe/public_html/wp-content/plugins/autochimp/autochimp-plugins.php on line 247

    JohnMikal - you can download version 2.02 from the plugin's developer tab. As I understand it, the newer version (when fixed), will only run on PHP 5.3 or higher.

    Hi Matt

    Thanks for the lead on the developer's tab. I am relatively new to web work and have never done a manual install of a plug in before. I suspect it would take me a few hours to learn the process, download the FTP software, etc. If that's what I have to do, so be it, but I am hoping it is a very little thing for Wanderer to repost the old version (assuming 2 version of a plugin can be listed simultaneously on WordPress.)

    No, you don't need any FTP stuff. All you need to do is download the zip file for the version you want to use. Then when you go to Plugins > Add New, you click on the Upload link at the top. You then upload the file you just downloaded. Be sure to delete the broken one first.

    And for those of us who can't upgrade to PHP 5.3.x? I need the functionality of being able to include custom post types, but my server is running 5.2.17 - any workarounds, hacks or alternatives?

    Hmm, if you absolutely need the new version, but CAN'T upgrade your PHP, then that will be a problem. The PHP upgrade is needed because the code has been revised to use more modern features of the language (which will make writing extensions/improvements much easier). To change that is far beyond a hack. So, you must either find a way to upgrade or stick with 2.02. Sorry!

    Do we know for sure that version 2.12 isn't creating any of the problems that 2.10 and 2.11 did? I would love to hear from anyone who has installed 2.12.

    I've updated to the 2.12 and there hasn't been any fatal errors on my site since then. Then again, I haven't had to use this plugin with any subscribers since the upgrade...which is the least of my worries as long as my site isn't down.

    The problem here is a PHP upgrade issue for sure. No doubts.

    EDIT: Discovered that my host allows me to change the PHP version to 5.4 in the control panel. The support person I was working with apparently had no idea this was possible. SMH....

    Plugin activated just fine after that. :)
