Hi I am a newbie to drupal and I upgraded to 7.23 and tb_sirate_starter, I don't know what to do. I tried to edit the views_slideshow.theme.inc file but it seems like I am breaking this even more.
Please help.

Error:

Comments

well, it's being worked on and the patch fixed my problem, but the issue is, as the error indicates with views_slideshow module. check out #1872616: PHP 5.4.x: "preg_replace() /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback()" and the patch (https://drupal.org/files/1872616-remove-deprecated-preg_replace-7.x-3.0....) there. applying patches is simple if you can use a command line...https://drupal.org/patch/apply

Hi Scotself

Thanks, you're a champion. It turns out that all I had to do was just apply the patch on command line.
The problem was that I was trying to replace the code myself with limited PHP skills.

The solution was just to use the command line to patch.

Kind Regards
