I updated a client's Joomla from J2.5.28 to J3.6.4. I have corrected most of the errors but this one stumps me even after researching here. I'm a novice PHP programmer and know enough to fix a few things here and there. I researched this throughout the internet and on StackOverflow and simply do not understand how to fix the following error in my particular case. I understand I could just turn off error reporting; However I do not want to do that because [from what I did find] this doesn't actually solve the problem. Solving the problem and correcting the code is what is actually recommended.
Here is the error:
Strict Standards: Non-static method modBtContentShowcaseHelper::fetchHead() should not be called statically in ...modules/mod_bt_contentshowcase/mod_bt_contentshowcase.php on line 64
Line 64 reads as follows:
modBtContentShowcaseHelper::fetchHead( $params );
You need to initiate the class
$x = new modBtContentShowcaseHelper(); $x->fetchhead($params);
