Support » Plugin: Page Security & Membership » [Plugin: Page Security by Contexture] Unable to call CTXPS_App::localize_init()

  • Resolved Angel


    Hi, I have de last version of the plugin 1.4.1 instaled.
    In localhost there are no problems, all perfect.

    But when I upload it to the server i got a problem.

    When I activate the plugin I got:

    Warning: call_user_func_array() []: Unable to call CTXPS_App::localize_init() in ***/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 395

    Warning: call_user_func_array() []: Unable to call CTXPS_App::admin_screens_init() in ***/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 395

    Warning: call_user_func_array() []: Unable to call CTXPS_App::admin_init() in ***/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 395

    Warning: call_user_func_array() []: Unable to call CTXPS_App::help_init() in ***/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 395

    And in the frontend similar errors.

    Please help, I don’t understand why works perfectly in localhost but don’t at the server.

    I checked that is not a problem of incompability with other plugin or width the template.

    It sounds like a bad upload. Here’s what you do:

    1. Deactivate PSC in your admin (do NOT delete via WordPress admin if need to preserve your security settings)
    2. Via FTP or SSH, manually delete the /wp-content/plugins/contexture-page-security/ directory
    3. Re-download 1.4.1 via WordPress’s Plugins > Add Plugin page.
    4. Re-activate Page Security

    This should set everything right.

    I’ getting a similar error and deleting and reuploading didn’t work.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined method CTXPS_Tables::prepare() in /home5/wp-content/plugins/contexture-page-security/core/model_queries.php on line 892

    I sent back to 1.4.0 and all is well again.

    I did notice on 1.4.0 that each person needed to be a member of a group, not just a registered user and each page needed a group assignment, not just registered user to be protected. This is why I upgraded to 1.4.1 thinking it fixed that.

    Thanks Veraxus but I tried to delete it and upload it again and it didn’t work.

    I have the wordpress version 3.0.4, maybe the problem is related to that?

    My theme is the free template cp-minimal, and I have a lot of plugins instaled like formidable forms, login width ajax, mee news.
    But in localhost works perfectly.

    I dont know what to do.

    Hey Geoff,

    We nailed the CTXPS_Tables::prepare() bug today. Updating to 1.4.2 should finally get everything working the way it’s supposed to.

    Can you tell me what version of PHP your server is running, and which hosting service?

    Technically, PSC should throw an error and refuse to activate if you’re running a version of PHP prior to 5.2.x, but from the looks of it, your server is choking on the ‘class::method’ callback (and you don’t seem to have gotten the PHP version warning).

    Also, if you shoot me an email (, I’d like to send you a modified version of PSC to try out on your production server.

    PHP Version 5.2.16
    I’m on Hostmonster.

    I appreciate that you try to help me.

    My server is running php 5.1.6 and it’s from arsys

    I’m looking for a solution, if I get it I will tell you.

    I sent you an email too.

    Thanks again.

    To finish off this thread, several points:

    Page Security requires PHP 5.2.3 to work. There’s a version check that should notify you if you current version is too low. But let me give you some technical details (other plugin developers might find this handy):

    Because I need to hook directly to static methods in custom classes, my callbacks look like this:
    add_action('admin_menu', 'CTXPS_App::admin_screens_init');

    This style of callback requires PHP 5.2.3 or higher. To support earlier versions of PHP, this callback would technically be written this way:
    add_action('admin_menu', array('CTXPS_App','admin_screens_init'));

    HOWEVER – WordPress contains a very unfortunate bug that somehow makes this style of callback invalid. In my own probing, it seems that when an array-formatted callback finally gets to call_user_func_array() in the WordPress core, an additional item has been added to the array. So instead of being given the valid array-formatted callback that I’ve defined, the array now look like this:


    This is now an invalid callback. Somehow, WordPress has appended a value to the array. This means that there is only one way to use WordPress hooks with methods… using string-formatted callbacks (which, as stated earlier, requires PHP 5.2.3 or higher).

    This is very unfortunate, but it’s a bug in the WordPress core that isn’t easily fixed. I have some workaround ideas that can be included in plugins that need this, and I’ll post them to the codex if one of them works.

    At the moment, it seems the only solution is to see if your hosting service can update PHP. I’ll look into those workarounds and let you know if I come up with a solution.

    Ok, I will ask to my hosting service for update PHP.

    Thanks for all, you’re plugin is great anyway.
