[resolved] Fatal error using shortcode [pdb-signup] (3 posts)

    I am new to this plugin and been trying it out just today.
    First of all, i get an error on activation saying Fatal Error. Activation works if I try again.

    WordPress installation is brand new 3.4.2 and no other plugins. Plugin version 1.4.1.Putting [pdb-signup] on sample page generates this text when viewing page:

    Fatal error: Call-time pass-by-reference has been removed in C:\xampp\htdocs\testsite\wp-content\plugins\participants-database\classes\PDb_Shortcode.class.php on line 264

    What could be wrong, have I misunderstood the setup guide? Is this not the way to generate a signup form?
