WordPress just relesed its last update 3.4, which is great, with a lot of new amazing features and bla bla bla….
The WP team also cleaned the code, changing the beaviour of some existing functions, like add_theme_support( ‘custom-background’)… the result is that Shiword will generate a fatal error!
So, first of all, if you’re using Shiword, DON’T UPGRADE YOUR SITE TO V3.4 before making one of the following fixes!!!
go in theme options page, under “other” tab, and deselect the ‘custom background’ checkbox! Easy uh??
Open shiword/lib/admin.php file and find the line
add_theme_support( 'custom-background', array( 'callback' => $header_callback ) );
(line 515 for shiword 3.02, and 395 for shiword 3.03)
and delete the whole line
upgrade to Shiword 3.03.1 that will fix the problem
Note: Shiword 3.03 is on the way to be published, but it doesn’t fix this issue
