    Genesis 1.91 + WP 3.5 + Latest News Child Theme

    I was posting a post using a shortcode from wp-filebase. Never have any issues. Than suddently this

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_active_sidebar() in /home/xxx/public_html/wp-content/plugins/genesis-widgetized-footer/genesis-widgetized-footer.php on line 462 

    Deactivated the plugin than this

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_active_sidebar() in /home/xxx/public_html/wp-content/themes/genesis/lib/structure/layout.php on line 94

    than tried to deactivate all plugin – on the plugin pages I got this

    Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpdb::prepare(), called in /home/blueplan/public_html/wp-content/plugins/simple-dropbox-upload-form/inc/wpsdbClass.php on line 34 and defined in /home/xxx/public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 990

    and on the home page I got this

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_active_sidebar() in /home/xxx/public_html/wp-content/themes/genesis/lib/structure/layout.php on line 94

    reactivated the News Theme

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_active_sidebar() in /home/xxx/public_html/wp-content/themes/news/home.php on line 10

    Bottom line with  plugin activated or deactivated it is the same!

    Any ideas suggestions!

    You can help the Simple Dropbox authors, by the error message specific to that plugin to them, and pointing them to http://make.wordpress.org/core/2012/12/12/php-warning-missing-argument-2-for-wpdb-prepare/

    I’ll nudge David here to help with the original widgetized footer plugin.

    @GaryJ
    Thanks for pointing out!

    @ponics
    I am the author of the “Genesis Widgetized Footer” plugin. I just wanted to reproduce your error(s) but was not able to do so, also not with WP_DEBUG on.

    Since the function in the error message regarding my plugin is a native WP function I currently couldn’t do much to help you as I am maybe not knowing all specifics of your install. Since the same function is in the message with Genesis itself I assume it must be another issue.

    Also if it may sound crazy to you, maybe re-uploading a fresh WordPress package could help. Do it via FTP, existing files could be overriden then. Also, deleting the plugin folders of wp-filebase and that dropbox plugin could help. After deleting try to access the Plugins backend page at yourdomain.com/wp-admin/plugins.php

    I hope this helps a tiny bit for now.
    -Dave.

    @ponics:
    Did you have one of the following plugins active in your install?
    – Sidebar Manager Light
    – Widget Manager Light
    – Widgetize Pages Light

    These plugins were manipulating the core (!) function “is_active_sidebar”.

    If that’s the case with your install then this is the cause of your issues. You then should go to the plugin pages on WordPress.org to see their update/install instructions (important!).

    Thank you to all!

    I just renamed the plugin folder, changed back to a basic WP theme that comes with the package. It then works! I renamed again everything but deleted as much as trouble maker plugin and in particularly, as suggested by @david, the Widgetize Pages Light.

    Thanks to all again!

    Awesome, Roger! I am so glad for you!

    The funny thing about this issue is: some month ago I’ve already had conversion with the plugin dev company of the 3 mentioned that modified core files: I telled them they should stop this behaviour, sadly, they needed months for this important fix, and caused so much pain for all users, devs etc. involved.
