Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress Newbie needs advice PLEASE

  • Greetings all,

    I am the webmaster of our church website. The website was created a few years ago. It was not created by me alone but by a very talented professional web developer and me. At the time I knew very little about HTML, PHP or WordPress. My background is that of a Novell\Windows network engineer on LANS. I have since become well versed in HTML and I consider myself somewhat proficient with PHP and WordPress. So I will try to explain the WordPress and WordPress plugin problems I am having as best I can.

    The first errors I received after upgrading WordPress to 3.3.1

    Warning: Parameter 1 to ec3_filter_posts_where() expected to be a reference, value given in /nfs/c01/h08/mnt/6507/domains/truevinecleveland.org/html/news/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 227

    Warning: Parameter 1 to ec3_filter_posts_join() expected to be a reference, value given in /nfs/c01/h08/mnt/6507/domains/truevinecleveland.org/html/news/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 227

    Warning: Parameter 1 to ec3_filter_posts_groupby() expected to be a reference, value given in /nfs/c01/h08/mnt/6507/domains/truevinecleveland.org/html/news/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 227

    Warning: Parameter 1 to ec3_filter_posts_orderby() expected to be a reference, value given in /nfs/c01/h08/mnt/6507/domains/truevinecleveland.org/html/news/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 227

    Warning: Parameter 1 to ec3_filter_posts_fields() expected to be a reference, value given in /nfs/c01/h08/mnt/6507/domains/truevinecleveland.org/html/news/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 227

    After receiving these errors I started a thread on this forum. You can view this thread here <a href=”http://wordpress.org/support/topic/new-to-wordpress-63?replies=5
    “>http://wordpress.org/support/topic/new-to-wordpress-63?replies=5
    I followed the advice\instructions in the thread. I am now receiving the following error from the Event Calendar Plugin after I upgraded WordPress to version 3.3.1;

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function ec3_get_calendar() in /nfs/c01/h08/mnt/6507/domains/truevinecleveland.org/html/news/wp-content/themes/truevine news/sidebar.php on line 16

    I believe I am on the right track when I sat that my next move is to install\engage PHP version 5.3.8 then upgrade the Event Calendar.

    Any suggestions or advice is welcome.

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Thank you esmi, you are the one that helped me with my original thread, and yes I have those things. Maybe I have done something incorrectly, but I will try again and follow your suggestions TO THE LETTER. Thank you very much, I can see from the forums that you are very active.

    Thank you again.

    Greetings! I have the same problem… any luck with this? I my case the ISP changed php version from 5.2.17 to 5.3.8 then it stopped working.

    Thanks-

    upgrading php should not cause any problem

    Thanks for your comment GovPatel…. At least for me, I’ve found these two plugins to be problematic.

    Event Calendar and Event Calendar Widget

    The error “…includes/plugin.php on line 227” is related to Event Calendar.

    I haven’t had a chace to look on thier site yet for a resolution, which might be the next step.

    May be the plugins have not been updated

    That was my thought too. There’s currently not an update being offered,.. at least in the Plug-ins interface. Perehaps one is underway! We might need to wait for an update from the developer.

    …in the meantime I’ve turned the two plugins off.
