WordPress 3.2.1 Dashboard Deprecated Error

May 28, 2012 by deepa1
hi there

After I  updated  to WP 3.2.1 I started getting the following error in my dashboard;
Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /usr/share/web/betzwood/webshare/wordpress/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 103
Does anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks

Try the following
- deactivate your plugins to see  and if the issue is solved, go back and re-activate your plugins one by one to find which plugin is causing it.
- switch to twenty eleven theme to see if this is a theme problem.
- reset the plugins folder by PhpMyAdmin or FTP.

I think this is caused by the simplepie that you are using.  Try adding SimplePie Core plugin  and see if it works :http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simplepie-core/installation/
