I see the developer updated this plugin only a month ago and with WP 3.5.2 it still doesn’t work. I have looked at the developer as a talented person for some time, and I have hoped above hope that he would devote some time to this project.
Now that he has, I’m thinking I was wrong about him. This is a sad state of affairs. Then when I go over to his website, the plugin available there is older than this one. What a mess.
Then go the his forums.. Oops.. same person moderating there as is moderating the WP Symposium forums.. What’s really going on?
I sure look forward to finding a decent alternative to BuddyPress.. But I guess that is going to be a while.. more..
What’s this about anyway?
Fatal error: Call-time pass-by-reference has been removed in XXXXXXXX\public_html\wp-content\plugins\mingle\classes\models\MnglBoardPost.php on line 19
I heard someone is going to continue Mingle… maybe under a new name.
I’ve ‘heard’ a lot of things. Would be nice.
That error is caused by running php5.4
I used to have php5.3 on my server and mingle worked just fine. Then today I upgraded the php on my web server and got the above error.
You’ll need to make a minor adjustment to two files to get wp mingle to work with 5.4 because of a depreciation.
As most web servers are still running php5.3 I guess the developer may not have php5.4 running.
The change is simle enough to do as the error above tells you which file and what line to change. it’s just a questions of deleting a & symbol.
After you’ve done the models/MnglBoardPost.php you’ll get another error for a helpers/MinlBoardHelper file to do the same deletion again.
After those two minor changes the mingles will be working again
Hope it helps
