  • Resolved hsidky



    Upon trying to activate Netblog on a fresh install of WordPress 3.4.1, I receive the following error:

    Fatal error: Cannot pass parameter 2 by reference in /xxxxxx/wp-content/plugins/netblog/core/DataTransfer.php on line 64

    Any idea what might be causing this?

  • same problem here 🙁

    anyone know how I can roll back the update?


    sorry,,,ended up in the wrong thread,,,this one is still unresolved

    just updated to 3.15 —
    was working great prior to update, now getting fatal error..
    /plugins/netblog/core/DataTransfer.php on line 64
    —- nothing on line 64,, so — dont know,,,DW shows no syntax errors…


    dont think you can roll back the update…do you save your files and site folders on your pc ??
    if you do and have not synced it you can ftp the old files and folders back to plugins folder,,,rename the 3.15 to something else and just add the older folders and files…

    sorry,,, 2.15 not 3.15 —,,,
    ftping the older version,,2.12 does not work either…
    brings up the same error….
    just so you know ….

    This is a strange problem, it should not happen and it never happened on my system (Linux, PHP 5.3). Anyway, I just removed the passing by reference. So it should work now for you.

    2.16 update,,,,issue resolved…great work,,,also very nice plugin..
    i will update all my sites now,,,,thanks benjamin !!

    Works great here. Thanks for the fix!

    Hi Benjamin

    Thanks for the update – is there anyway I can disable the current version so I can get into the backend again to reinstall with the new version, without reinstalling the whole site?

    Just to make sure I understand you correctly: You want to manually disable the plugin? Can’t you get into the admin panel anymore?
