Support » Theme: Arras » [Theme: Arras] Updating to WP 3.2 generates a fatal error code

  • Resolved Craig M. Jamieson


    Hi .. I updated to WP 3.2 and got an immediate fatal error code …

    Fatal error: Call to undefined method Arras_Widget_Tag_Cloud::WP_Widget_Tag_Cloud() in /home/networks/public_html/wp-content/themes/arras/library/widgets.php on line 404

    It is not my computer or my browser. According to hostgator it is the theme? You can still view the site, however, if you go to the admin panel on WordPress it totally shuts down and you can not get to your dashboard or the site after that. Bummmer

    It happen to me either. Now I’m using other themes. I hope it can fixed soon

    I’ve got information from here:

    To fix this, simply replace line 355 of /library/widgets.php from:

    function Arras_Widget_Tag_Cloud() {


    function Arras_Widget_Tag_Cloud() {

    I hope it can help you

    Thanks so much Lutvi!
    I really appreciate the support!

    Bless you Lutvi Avandi… saved me hours of work!

    Much-appreciated, Lutvi Avandi. I was about to lose it.

    Sweet! Thank you!!

    Just had this issue, and found this solution. Thanks a ton, got it going right away.



    i am a COMPLETE novice to all this! where do i actually find the “widget php” to make the edit?! what do i click on to get there?

    Go to your dashboard and under “Appearance” on the left sidbar, click “Editor”, Under “Templates” on the left scroll down and find “widgets”. This will bring up the coding. Scroll down until you find the code string specified (it is toward the bottom” and them replace it with the code in this forum and save. Don’t feel bad. I had never done anything remotely like this either (smile). It was easy and it worked. Good luck!

    Ok, I can’t get onto my website at all. So I downloaded the widgets.php file and edited the code. But when I downloaded the file it saved it as index.php. Do upload it back to the server as index.php, or change it to widgets.php?

    Sorry, that is beyond my expertise. I had to have Hostgator restore a backup to get my site running and at that point it was still under the previous version of WordPress. Then I did this edit before upgrading to 3.2. Good luck! I am sure somebody else can answer this for you!

    Thanks a lot. Now got it all working, changed the file to widgets.php and uploaded, now works fine. I think I will upgrade to 3.2 manually.

    Right, I now have a new error. The main website works fine, but when I go to go to the admin section it gives me this error.

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_temp_dir() (previously declared in /home/a1058576/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php:2160) in /home/a1058576/public_html/wp-admin/includes/file.php on line 189

    Completely stuck with this one, please reply I need help fast!

    Phew!!!! Thanx @lutvi Avandi
