Support » Fixing WordPress » Not a clue where to begin – fatal warnings errors everywhere!

  • Let me apologize from the outset for being vague but there are so many issues they must be related to WordPress itself rather than any single plugin or theme.

    I’ve not been to this site for about two months so it’s possible the latest update broke everything…? I guess it could also be something on my hosting provider’s end but all my other sites are working fine.

    I’m removed the plugins and then I get theme issues. When I try to login I get another set of errors. I took a known, good, copy of my entire site, that hasn’t been touched in 2 years, uploaded that and experiencing the same errors.

    Is there a way to find out what eversion of WP I’m running if I can’t login? Maybe from the FTP side? Maybe revert to a previous version?

    This site was working perfectly two months ago. Nothing was changed – by me that is.

    Glad to provide specifics if anyone can help – but, like I said, I just don’t know where to begin!
    Thanks!
    Rob

    You seem to be running WordPress 4.1.1.

    It looks to me that the issues all revolve around your theme, BP Social. I’d start by (1) changing the theme so you get your site back then (2) contacting that theme’s developer.

    You’re using a commercial theme/plugin, so please use their official support channel. We feel they are best equipped to support their products.

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/

    Commercial products are not supported in these forums.

    Check to see what other themes you may have installed and activate one of them instead of bp-social. https://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/wordpress-edu/change-theme-in-db You can see the themes in the directory wp-content/themes.

    Hi Steve!
    Thanks for the reply.
    I did receive a notification that that site was updated to 4.9.1.

    When I switch to a WP default theme I get this:

    Warning: Declaration of BPSimplePostTermsChecklistWalker::start_el(&$output, $category, $depth, $args, $id = 0) should be compatible with Walker::start_el(&$output, $object, $depth = 0, $args = Array, $current_object_id = 0) in /homepages/4/d460829599/htdocs/healthitlink/wp-content/plugins/bp-simple-front-end-post/bp-simple-front-end-post.php on line 914

    Then, when I remove the plugins mentioned in the above errors (actually all the plugins), I get this:

    Warning: Illegal string offset ‘remember’ in /homepages/4/d460829599/htdocs/healthitlink/wp-includes/user.php on line 39

    Warning: Cannot assign an empty string to a string offset in /homepages/4/d460829599/htdocs/healthitlink/wp-includes/user.php on line 39

    Warning: Illegal string offset ‘user_login’ in /homepages/4/d460829599/htdocs/healthitlink/wp-includes/user.php on line 54

    Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Cannot create references to/from string offsets in /homepages/4/d460829599/htdocs/healthitlink/wp-includes/user.php:54 Stack trace: #0 /homepages/4/d460829599/htdocs/healthitlink/wp-login.php(775): wp_signon(”, ”) #1 {main} thrown in /homepages/4/d460829599/htdocs/healthitlink/wp-includes/user.php on line 54

    I’m not certain but I don’t believe those are 3rd party errors.

    Thanks!

    The “bp” plugin should probably be disabled if you’re not using a “bp” theme. Everything after the first error is a cascade of consequences.

    Hi Steve,
    Thanks again – as I mentioned above I still get the following errors when all the plugins are disabled…I find it oddly coincidental that the errors from the plugins, and the errors below, are from a disabled theme?

    Also – when I disable the theme and the plugins, I get a white page. Then, when I tried to access /wp-admin – I got a prompt saying I needed to update my WP DB. Which I did – but still getting errors with theme and plugins disabled.

    Thanks!

    What have you set as the current theme?

    Hi Steve – I just did a manual update – so whatever the current version is is what I have 🙂

    I’m still getting all the same errors – with everything either enabled, disabled, reinstalled, etc…checked my php, running 7.3, …I’m stuck.

    When I disable the plugins associatedd with the errors on the site right now, then even more plugin errors come up. I reinstalled a known, good, working backup and getting the same errors – and that backup is 4 months old.
