An astute user recently pointed out an unknown bug that was introduced in the WP-Members 2.3.0 release and carries through the current 2.3.2 release.
If the user calls the
wpmem_inc_sidebar function directly (as in the case of not using the widget), you will get a fatal error. I made some file structure changes in 2.3.0 in the area of the sidebar, the widget, and the login status and manually calling the function got overlooked. Fortunately, this effects a small number of users, there is an easy workaround, and I’ve already added a fix in the upcoming 2.3.3 feature release.
If you are effected by this bug and need a fix before the 2.3.3 release, you can do the following:
- Open wp-members.php
- At the end of the file, before the closing php tag (“?>”), add this:
- Save the file
