Support » Plugin: Menu Item Visibility Control » Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ';'

  • Resolved rdcravens


    When I disable Memoria Ticket System, I get the following error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘;’ in /home/XXXXXX/public_html/wp-content/plugins/menu-items-visibility-control/init.php(97) : eval()’d code on line 1

    I am sure it is related to the fact that I had a setting at one point for Memoria to show only when the user was logged in – but I deleted the menu item and disabled the plugin.

    When I re-enable the plugin, the error goes away. Toggled a few times to validate that this is what is causing the error…

    Where can I find the Menu Item Visibility Control setting or whatever to delete that rids me of this error so that I can delete the plugin from my system without generating this error?

    Please first re-enable the plugin so the error doesn’t appear, now check the logic set for menu items and make sure none of them are using a function from that ticket plugin (when the plugin is disabled PHP is unable to run that function and so generates the error). Also note the ; character is not needed in the Visibility option for menu items, you must input only the logic itself (like: is_home()).

    No menu item, under Appearance->Menu’s is using that plugin for any kind of conditional test. Only is_user_logged_in() == true/False and some PMPRO logic for paid areas.

    I am not using a ; in any of my conditions.

    The other plugin did not have a menu item, it uses shortcode within an existing page – so I am a bit unsure what this plugin is looking up that would be able to reference that plugin.

    I did not notice that the subject line got truncated… Here is the whole error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘;’ in /XXXXX/XXXXX/public_html/wp-content/plugins/menu-items-visibility-control/init.php(97) : eval()’d code on line 1

    I realize I said it had a menu to being with – I was a bit confused on the support plugin. I apologize for the mistake… I have been testing a couple and got confused. The one causing the error only uses shortcode on existing pages.

    This is the plugin: Might I ask what shortcode you’re using? I can try to replicate it on local setup.

    Good news, I found the problem… 🙂

    Turns out that if you use PMPro that memoria ticket system will mask errors. I disabled Memoria ticket system and then it exposed an issue, on one menu item, with the PMPRO logic I was using for paid areas.

    Sorry for the false alarm!
