Using Hooker on WP Engine Hosted Site Turns Site Blank

Recommended Posts

dawsonbarber

I just installed Hooker on a site using the Base child theme and, after activating it and navigating to the front end of the site, I saw that it went blank.

 

The backend was fine so I deactivated Hooker and the front-end of the site returned to normal.

 

I deactivated all plugins, reactivated Hooker, and the front-end of the site went blank again.

 

It's hosted on WP Engine, which comes with a staging area that basically disables their caching and their optimization technology.

 

I've tested it on a staging area for the site, with all plugins disabled except Hooker, and get a mostly blank page on the front-end with the following message (that I wasn't seeing on the live site):

 

 Fatal error: Call to a member function add_menu() on a non-object in /nas/wp/www/staging/dawsonsites/wp-content/plugins/hooker/hooker.php on line 44

I've tried switching from the Base theme to Pagelines, but there's no change.

 

I'm all out of ideas.

 

Any suggestions?

Do you have the adminbar disabled for your user?

Hi Simon

 

Yes it was disabled. Reading between the lines, I enabled it and have activated Hooker and the "blank page" problem appears to have been solved.

 

Is there anything else that I need to do - or is the problem solved?

 

Cheers

      We had a very nice shortcodes library and hooker in the previous version of the platform. But in the version 5 they are missing. 
      So are you going to improve it again in future or no they are not supported anymore? 
      and one more question, what do you suggest for sharing bar which we had in DMS2 ?
      Thanks for your effort

      We add phone number to the top right of sites using hooker (example http://hub.theasap.org.uk/) but it's not responsive. Is there a better way to add here, which would be responsive?

      Hello, 
      I'm in a dramatic situation.  I have a live site that is totally screwed up and I'm in desperate need to fix it asap.  The site was originally build with Pagelines but have made several upgrades through the years.  With the latest WP upgrade, somehow the action loop I was using on my homepage came through dramatically wrong and not sure how to fix the problem.  I have the Hooker plugin and in need of finding the action map to figure out where to implement the loop and fix the problem.  I found the action map plugin stored on an old hardrive but when activated, I got an error so I quickly deleted it.  I can't find a download or instructions on this anywhere, only broken links and no documentation.   
      Can you please direct me to the action map to use the hooker that I already have or show me the documentation to use this product?  
      Thank you

      To whom it may concern:
      I am developing a website for a client using the PageLines DMS2 theme and am having an issue getting a custom jQuery function to work using your Hooker plugin. I have used Hooker to add HTML and PHP to the wp_head hook successfully, so I do not understand where the issue exists – I am using the pageslines_after_footer hook to place my jQuery at the bottom of the document (alongside the many other scripts that come with the theme and various other plugins). I checked the document HEAD section and know that jQuery is enabled, and after enabling my custom hook saw that my script was loaded into the footer (as hoped for), but it is not working.
      I am trying to make a simple, custom back-to-top button that appears after a user has scrolled the page a certain distance, as calculated in jQuery. After an hour, I decided to troubleshoot my script on a test WordPress site on my localhost (using jQuery version 1.11.3) and it works exactly as intended. I would like to avoid writing any code within the DMS2 theme files if possible.
      I have also tried the wp_head, wp_footer and pagelines_before_footer hooks to no avail. Am I using the wrong hook(s)? What else can I try?
      My code:
      HTML
      <a href="#"><div id="bttb-cont" style="">Hello</div></a>
       
      jQuery (within the Hooker plugin)
      <script type="text/javascript">
                      $(document).scroll(function() {
                                      var windowHeight = $(window).height() / 7;
                                      var scroll = $(window).scrollTop();
                                      
                                      if (scroll > windowHeight) {
                                                      $('#bttb-cont').fadeIn();
                                      } else {
                                                      $('#bttb-cont').fadeOut();
                                      };
                      });
      </script>
       
      As you can see, it is a very simple script.. Any help on this matter will be greatly appreciated.
