Having to use wordpress 3.3.2 to use a plugin

Hi all,

I am helping a client use wordpress with scorm, and used the scorm cloud plugin.

Firstly I downloaded the current version of wordpress and all seemed fine until when I used the plugin it didn’t seem to join up using the app id and securitu key. I found out that the plugin is compatible up to version 3.3.2 so I downloaded that, uploaded it and now I have a problem where in admin, I can see the nav on the left, but when you click an option nothing shows on the right, and nothing also shows on the home page as below -


I checked the error logs and got this error below -

PHP Fatal error: Access to undeclared static property: WP_Screen::$this in /home/whelearn/public_html/ScormTrial/wp-admin/includes/screen.php on line 706

I read somewhere that it could possibly be the version of PHP, which is 5.4 and asked if they could revert back to 5.3 and it didn’t make a difference.

This is the part of the code where that error is indicating and haven’t got a clue in honesty

<?php if ( $has_sidebar ) : ?>
<div class="contextual-help-sidebar">
<?php echo self::$this->_help_sidebar; ?>
<?php endif; ?>

Line 706 is -

<?php echo self::$this->_help_sidebar; ?>

Any ideas?


I’d suggest asking the developers for support. It could be a combination of many things, WP version, PHP version or even a clash with another plugin.
