Hello Jeremy. I have enjoyed your plugin and when I hit it big with my book and my blog, I promise to donate. Right now I’m strapped. Anyway, I updated to 2.1 and got this. Fatal error: Call to undefined function sprint() in /home/content/67/6095367/html/wp-content/themes/techozoic-fluid/functions/tech-widget.php on line 67. I restored a previous snapshot from my Godaddy FTP File Manager and all is well. I disabled my plugins before updating. I just wanted to let you know and to see if you have any idea what this error means. Thank you.

Yes I see that thank you very much. Simple typo on my part. I’ll be releasing an update for this and another bug as soon as I can get it fixed and tested.

Gotcha. Thanks. I’ll look for the update. Take care.

I had exactly the same problem. My site is still offline. I liked all the options but one of them caused the fatal error problem.

Where can the given password be changed? If I come back trying to remember your password will not work.

I just updated today and I’m having the same issue. Can’t get to the WP dashboard, either. Awaiting update, because I really like this theme.

Hi Jeremy
My blog is also showing the exact same fatal error message. 🙁
Please make it possible for us to do the update without being logged into the backend (and perhaps even make a step-by-step guide for doing the update manually).
Very nice theme by the way! 🙂

You’ll just need to delete the theme all together via FTP and it will restore your dashboard back to working condition then after the Techozoic V 2.1.1 is available you’ll be able to install it and all your customizations thru the settings pages should be intact.

Sorry to everyone about this error. It was a huge error on my part. I will be doing more through testing before releasing any major changes like this again.

I see the new update 2.1.1 is available. This should fix the fatal error correct? Thank you Jeremy.

Yes it corrects this as well as blank archive pages.

Thank you very much! 🙂

Hey Jeremy. I updated without fatal error, however, I did have a few problems. The five tabs I use on my blog were set to 0 for the variable width and looked correct other than the rounded feature gone, ( I understand a custom menu is used to correct this.) however, then the tabs would appear as 1/8 inch wide. You could click on them, but it looked like five match sticks. 🙂 Two other things. The various text font sizes appeared larger than before, but only on the page I have set as my blog. The settings I used were the same as before. Also, the date icons and comment icons were gone. I did my best to try to figure things out, but to no avail. I apologize if this isn’t enough information. I used my Godaddy FTP Manager to restore to a previous working state, so I can’t show you how the blog looked. I would be willing to update to 2.1.1 again so you could take a look if needed. I have WordPress 3.5.1 installed. I don’t have a lot of plugins installed and they were deactivated when I updated to version 2.1.1. Other than this, the new version seems more stream lined and acceptable. I just don’t know how to use the Menu feature to go back to rounded tabs as mentioned in another post here. I appreciate any help and will answer any needed questions to assist you.

I’m working on fixing the problem with the menus using the default page based menu. For now you can just specify a width for the tabs and that should fix the problem. Also another option would be to make note of what all the settings were and just restore defaults and then make your changes back from there. I’ve made quite a few changes and the upgrade might not be pulling in all the settings the way it should. I’ll look into this problem as well.

The comment and date icons were removed on purpose to make the theme cleaner looking. All the info is still available just not a prominent as before.

Thanks for the quick reply. I understand how to specify a width. I may hit default settings and start over, since I didn’t try that. I printed out my settings, so it wouldn’t be hard. I think I did see a date and comment area, but it was small. The thing about the tabs is that at one point they were OK, and then when I went back to the website they were as described in my other post. Could it be some settings aren’t being retained? I should have a chance to play around this weekend and see if I can get a working theme. I’ll let you know how it goes. Worst case scenario is to wait for the next update. One more question. Was I correct in deactivating my plugins before updating? They are all the basic standard ones used like All in One SEO Pack,Google Site Map, Akismet, ect….except for AddThis Share, WP Mobile Detector, and WP Slim Stat. Thanks.

Yes it’s usually safest to deactivate the plugins before doing major upgrades to WordPress, themes are “usually” safer, I’ve proved this wrong with this last update though 🙂 I wouldn’t worry about your plugins with theme updates though..
