[Plugin: Akismet] Warning: Cannot use a scalar value as an array in……….

  • I suddenly began receiving this error message on my widgets page:

    Warning: Cannot use a scalar value as an array in /home/public_html/blog/wp-content/themes/Layout2.0/core/widgets.php on line 16

    I disabled all my recently installed plugins, and Askimet is the culprit. I don’t know why this is happening, but I have to disable Askimet until this is resolved.

    I haven’t been able to reproduce this error using the default twenty-ten theme that comes with WordPress. Can you try it with the twenty-ten theme and see if you still get the error. Based on the error message that you included in looks like this is related your theme, Layout2.0.

    I am using a customized layout, however of the 20+ plugins I’ve used or am using on my site, Akismet is the only one that has ever produced any error.

    Perhaps if you let me know what the error means I can look within my template to see if it is something I can fix?

    It is trying to use a scalar value (like a string or number) as an array, which won’t work.

    I have a similar problem with one type of theme (expandable full width artisteer) however only in the backend, when i enter the widget area
    a have to scroll down and across to find anything however it all works. this is the warning i get.

    Cannot use a scalar value as an array in /var/www/vhosts/******/httpdocs/wp-content/themes/****_****/core/widgets.php on line 16

    Here is line (16) $controls[‘params’][0][‘id’]=$id;
    gratefull for any help.

    i should probably mension its artisteer 3 templates and askimet and i don’t have a clue whats causing it

    if you would like a template to try for yourself go to
