Support » Plugin: Social » Fatal Error When Broadcasting

  • I am using the most recent version of Social. It has worked fine until recently and I now get the following error:
    “Catchable fatal error: Object of class stdClass could not be converted to string in /path/to/wordpress/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 509”. I have not added any plugins or changed any settings since Social was working. I have not found any forum topics that deal with this issue so I am hoping someone has an idea about the problem.

  • I’m also having this issue all of the sudden. Haven’t done any updates since the last time it was working or anything. Really nothing has changed, it just suddenly quit working!

    It appears that the cronjobs aren’t working either, and if you disable wp-cron jobs and enable manual cronjobs, social broadcasting will begin to work. However the entire crontab doesn’t, whether you set it up manually, visit the page or leave it in wp-cron it just plain out does not work.
    If I wget I recieve a 500 internal server error.

    “wget -O -“

    UPDATE: Manual cron will work, because of the &’s in the URL you will need to put the url inside of singular quotations so that your machine does not think you want it to run the rest of the url as a new command. <i>my bad</i>.

    If you disable wp-cron and enable manual cron, then setup a system crontab to visit the page it tells you with wget, all components of social should be fixed :).

    im having this same problem. But what the heck is cron? I don’t think i’m running that….
