Dear maintainers, I have this issue running Drupal 7.7 (latest) locally with Views Slideshow. The same issue with Drupal 7.0.

In order to create a simple news scroll, I created a view showing a block showing the last 5 teasers of a content type "news": I used the plugin of type slideshow (see the exported view).
The block looks fine, and the news are scrolling OK, but if you click on the title of the teaser or on the "read more" link to access the full news, then you got the error with the following stack:

( ! ) Fatal error: [] operator not supported for strings in D:\temp\wamp\www\example.com\includes\common.inc on line 2319

Comments

I had the same problem and I changed the critical line 2319 from this:
$options['attributes']['class'][] = 'active';
to this:
$options['attributes']['class'] = 'active';
and it running. but its only hotfix...

I use this, because original class remains (tagedelic module generated this error too):

if(isset($options['attributes']['class'])) $options['attributes']['class'] .= ' active';
else $options['attributes']['class'] = 'active';

I have this problem. Thanks kibo for hotfix

I had the same problem.
Hotfix working for me too, great!

Same problem here. The fix mentioned worked me as well.

This seems like it would be a core issue or a views issue. Do you get the same error if you use unformatted instead of slideshow?

Project:Views Slideshow» Marinelli
Version:7.x-3.x-dev» 7.x-3.0-beta9
Status:Postponed (maintainer needs more info)» Needs review

Don't hack core. =)

The culprit is marinelli/templates/node--teaser.tpl.php as shown in the stack.

The class attribute passed to l() is not an array.
Change this (Line 41)

array('attributes' => array('class' => t('node-readmore-link'))));

to
array('attributes' => array('class' => array('node-readmore-link'))));

Hotfix working for me too, thx. I use BlogBuzz 2 theme. Is it can be source of that error?

I got the same error message using omega theme. the hotfix worked or me too
