Business Directory Plugin
[resolved] Completely breaks WordPress! (6 posts)

    After upgrading to the latest version of this plugin, WordPress was completely broken. The only thing that appeared on both the site *and* the admin page was an fatal error along the lines of "Fatal error: Call-time pass-by-reference has been removed..." so I couldn't even disable the plugin.

    I had to ftp in and directly edit the files to get it working again.

    The problem lies with the way the variables are passed in form-fields.php on lines 362 and 404.

    Hi Anthony,

    That sounds serious. Can you elaborate on what you mean by "the problem lies with the way variables are passed" because I'm not able to reproduce this behavior on my own test sites (multiple ones).

    Definitely want to get this fixed. You can email me directly if you prefer: support at business directory plugin dotcom23&&{ (fixing the email address, of course)

    It would also help to know what kind of hosting you have (Windows/Linux), along with PHP version as well.

    Is this fixed now? Is the plugin safe to install? The latest version seems to date from 7th May so presumably not.

    This issue is being addressed in the patch releasing this week. There are updates for how images are handled and in listing renewals. The problem experienced above was isolated to a particular instance, but it was fixed appropriately.
