    We bought the theme Pinnacle around 3 years ago to build our website. The website has been great and working very well and we had great experiences using Kadence to help us build our site (we are amateurs and really don’t know what we are doing)

    Because we had such good memories using you we decided to buy another theme Ascend. Now we have 2 websites the old site using Pinnacle and the new site using Ascend. Recently our hosting provider created a SSL plugin (we found out because a friend noticed that our site had a problem with the security certificate), however the plugin wasn’t supported by our current php5 settings so we upgrade the php to 7 and activated the plugin. However we now have a couple of issues

    Problem 1

    The website using Ascend was unaffected, but when we tried to login again to the wordpress account on our pinnacle site an error message came up and we couldn’t get access (sorry we didn’t make a note of the error message). Going back to our hosting we reverted back to php5, this gave us access to our pinnacle wordpress login so we deactivated the plugin and changed the hosting back to php7. Because we are using the same host for both websites we cannot choose php 5 for pinnacle and php7 for Ascend, so we want to have the latest php (which is 7) We would like to re activate the SSL plugin but feel like it will corrupt our login access again.

    Problem 2

    Even without reactivating the SSL plugin the pinnacle website has a few problems in php7 and also if we revert back to php5, firstly the font is no longer the same, and secondly we have 2 error messages on all our blog posts like the following:

    Warning: Parameter 1 to wp_default_styles() expected to be a reference, value given in /home/2islandtraveller/www/wordpress/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 571

    Warning: Illegal string offset ‘output_key’ in /home/2islandtraveller/www/wordpress/wp-includes/nav-menu.php on

    I feel because we have bought the Ascend template you can help us with any problems on the Ascend site but as this is a problem with our Pinnacle you might not want to look into this? Any help would be really appreciated as we are a bit stuck right now.

    Update: we just tried to login to our pinnacle site on wordpress from another computer and got this error message:

    Warning: Illegal string offset ‘remember’ in /home/2islandtraveller/www/wordpress/wp-includes/user.php on line 39

    Warning: Cannot assign an empty string to a string offset in /home/2islandtraveller/www/wordpress/wp-includes/user.php on line 39

    Warning: Illegal string offset ‘user_login’ in /home/2islandtraveller/www/wordpress/wp-includes/user.php on line 54

    Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Cannot create references to/from string offsets in /home/2islandtraveller/www/wordpress/wp-includes/user.php:54 Stack trace: #0 /home/2islandtraveller/www/wordpress/wp-login.php(775): wp_signon(”, ”) #1 {main} thrown in /home/2islandtraveller/www/wordpress/wp-includes/user.php on line 54

    Many thanks
