Same thing happens to me, although I don’t get the code. I just get the menu on the left but the rest off the screen is blank. I have latest WordPress and there are no other plugins or themes that can cause a conflict.
which theme do you use ? Try with Twenty Sixteen or fifteen, and if you deactivated the toolbar in your settings, try to activate it, then activate BP again.
Another thing to try is to not use the theme customizer. Setup WP, then BP and use a twenty theme, without customizer actions. This basic trio should work.
If your site use php 7+, try to use only php 7.0 (not 7.0.x) as BP is not ready for the very latest php version at this time… You could also try to use only php 5.6 instead of 7.0…
Just in case of, as this was already mentionned on Trac, you can follow about that issue on #7406
@baramagnus Unless you’re using PHP 7.1 on your server, please report your own issue with any relevant data from your PHP error log (ask your server host for help, if needed). We can’t debug anything given the very general report you’ve told us, unfortunately.
@wautersandreas and @danbp Fatal errors with that exact message are caused by a change in PHP 7.1. We have fixed this specific issue for an upcoming release — our ticket tracking PHP 7.1 is here https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/7392
While we could ship a release today to fix that specific error, there is at least 1 other PHP 7.1 error that I know about, which is in WordPress itself, which I reported here https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/39277
tl;dr We’ll do more testing for PHP 7.1 in BuddyPress in the first couple weeks of the new year (probably) and ship what fixes we have. We may or may not choose to wait for the next minor release of WordPress (4.7.1) before doing that. Still to be determined.
@djpaul, sorry for the second ticket, i created it because i was unsure about the main cause. Thanks for this clarification.
Thanks for clarifying. Yes, I did use PHP 7.1 but it works with an older version of PHP. Thanks for updating!
official requirements for WP (hosters) are given here. Minimum php version for WP is 5.2.4, while most used php version is 5.6
More WP stats here.
BuddyPress users use all 5.3 and above (as of preliminary 2016 survey results).
This means that if you use 5.6, you’re anyway fine.
