I am bringing this to your attention as I don't know if you follow the WordPress › Support » Plugins and Hacks section: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/latest-update-gives-me-a-fatal-error
I just tried doing the update to version 4.8.10 and got this message:
Fatal error: Call-time pass-by-reference has been removed in /Users/administrator/Desktop/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wp-photo-album-plus/wppa-admin-functions.php on line 678
I can't activate the plugin now. I am using WP 3.5 and am working on a site in MAMP. Up til this update the plugin was working perfectly well. Is this peculiar to me or are others experiencing this? Is there a fix?
I got the same error. WordPress 3.5 and Pagelines 2.3.8 theme. Other active plugins: Akismet, Gallery Plugin, Google Fonts, Nextgen Gallery, Pagelines sections, Post Types Order, Sexy Snips and Simple CSS Lite. Before the update everything was ok.
