Fatal Error The script tried to execute a method or access a property of an incomplete object
had a problem logging into my site from an error with plugin wordfence,Deactivated wordfence, got in and had message to update Stallion but when i went to update stallion got this message and can not update anything? –
"Fatal error: ThemeUpdateChecker::injectUpdate() [themeupdatechecker.injectupdate]: The script tried to execute a method or access a property of an incomplete object.

Premium Theme Update Plugin Error
A few customers have reported this issue previously, it’s in code I didn’t write (basically a plugin for adding updates to premium themes) and I’ve not been able to find the exact cause or a solution.
Here’s other comments on this (no solutions I’m afraid):
# https://stallion-theme.co.uk/wordpress-theme-update-tutorial/comment-page-1/#comment-23957 # https://stallion-theme.co.uk/wordpress-theme-update-tutorial/comment-page-1/#comment-24396
One of the Stallion theme users asked at http://w-shadow.com/blog/2011/06/02/automatic-updates-for-commercial-themes/ about the issue and the plugin author responded:
Are you using a persistent object caching plugin (e.g. Memcache or similar)? Some of those plugins can unintentionally change the load order of database options, which would cause problems like this.
Another customer with this issue I was helping via email told me Hostgator fixed the issue, but didn’t go into any details what they fixed.
The quick solution is to use FTP to update Stallion when the built in theme update doesn’t work.
Sorry again about the delay responding, wasn’t intentional.
HostGator deactivated the WordPress Theme
HostGator deactivated the Stallion Theme and every thing is working again. I will upload the new version and hope it doesn’t happen again when there is an update.
The issue is definitely in the updater file, so it must conflict with other updaters.
Help Install WordPress Theme
Hi David, bought the theme 2 weeks ago, since then tried to install it on 2 different wp-sites but can’t get it installed. I have tried to contact you for 10 days via mail, twitter, facebook but you don’t respond. Is something happened to you? Tell me what to do next. Hope to hear from you soon.
WordPress Theme Support
That’s strange, I’ve not got anything via email (only email with your email address is the original Clickbank order from 1st July) or Facebook (definitely wouldn’t miss Facebook, any direct Facebook message would still be available), my Twitter account I don’t check messages, so no idea about that one.
This is the first comment you’ve made (went straight to moderation until I approved it, that’s normal), checked the comment SPAM folder for your email address didn’t find anything, but have emptied SPAM earlier this month.
Anyway, what’s the problem? Error messages are helpful.
In case you’ve been using the wrong code for your Stallion ID added your email address to the transaction reminder form so you’ll have an email now with the correct Stallion ID.
WordPress Theme Install Failed
Hi David, The ID I got already was correct and I downloaded the theme zip file. Then in my wp site I went to the place were you can upload the themes. So I did. Then to the right folder with the stallion zip file, select it and push the install now button. Then there comes a message “are you sure, try again” it stays like this and doesn’t go on. What am I doing wrong? Marijke
WordPress Error Message - Are you sure you want to do this? Please try again
Is the error message “Are you sure you want to do this? Please try again”
The version 7 Stallion Theme zip file is quite big, almost 9MB and can take a while to install. If your host has some settings set low (max_execution_time, max_input_time and possibly memory_limit) it could timeout and I understand the “Are you sure you want to do this? Please try again” is the WordPress error message you get. If it took a while for the error message to show that would strongly suggest a timeout issue.
Come to think of it you can test this by downloading the Stallion Child Theme zip file and install it like you tried with Stallion.
The Child theme zip file is less than 1.2MB so will install much faster so shouldn’t timeout if this is the problem. The Example Child Theme won’t activate (it will install, won’t activate) without Stallion being installed, so won’t cause any harm or anything, if it does install will inform you the Parent Theme (Stallion 7) isn’t installed if you try to activate. As a side note it’s a good idea to install the Example Child Theme after installing Stallion, makes future main Stallion updates easier.
There’s other things that can cause this WordPress error, but it’s quite a generic WordPress error message so difficult to troubleshoot.
Quickest solution is use FTP to install Stallion. See WordPress Theme FTP Installation Instructions, it’s for another theme (Talian), just replace Talian name for Stallion.
You can also check your upload file size is set high enough. Edit any post, click the add image button and on the window that opens you’ll see a message (close the window after you read the message):
Maximum upload file size: 16MB. After a file has been uploaded, you can add titles and descriptions.
If the MB size isn’t 10MB or more you won’t be able to use the theme installer unless you contact your host to have the Maximum upload file size increased (suggest 16MB) or you change it yourself via a hosting control panel or php.ini file.
Again FTP is the quick solution.
WordPress Max Upload Size
Hi David, Because of my good relationship with my provider: husband ;) I have now an upload of 32MB and everything went perfectly. So thanks for your help and advice, now I am going to study all of your info on your sites and try to get it all right on my site. Marijke
Best WordPress Hosting In the World :-)
LOL, I have a wife like you, she has a bunch of sites and leaves all the hosting stuff to me :-)
I do get told off when I test theme updates before release on her sites like Skinny Me.
Glad you got Stallion installed.
How to Upgrade WordPress Themes?
I have the Stallion Seo Ad theme 6.01 and I wanted to upgrade my wordpress dashboard does not show upgrade feature.
Also I tried to add the stallion seo them 7.1.1 and durning the upload it said file is too big … Please help Joe
How to Update a Premium WordPress Theme
Stallion 6.01 didn’t have the built in Stallion built in premium WordPress theme updater.
You can’t use the WordPress theme installer to update a theme, when a theme already exists (already installed) WordPress throws out an error though not the too big error. Have to say consider WordPress core not having the option to use the WordPress theme installer to upload the same theme zip file a feature failing. The WordPress automatic theme updater (the one where you click Update themes etc…) manages to delete the current theme directory and installs from the zip file from the WordPress theme repository, so don’t understand why the same can’t be part of the manual theme installer. The only real difference is the WordPress user is obtaining the zip file from their PC rather than from the WordPress repository server.
Anyway, I think I know what’s happening.
Sounds like this is anew Stallion theme install or you’ve deleted the old version of Stallion (making it a newish install :-)).
Your hosting account has the maximum file upload size set too low, many web hosts have it set to just 2MBs, you need a minimum 10MBs to install Stallion that way. Since the upload size is too low when you try to install any large theme or plugin you’ll get the file too big error.
If your hosting did have a max file upload size big enough (email them and ask for the max file upload size t be increased to 20MBs) you wouldn’t get the file size error, instead you’d get the folder exists error instead since /stallion-seo-theme/ folder already exists (unless as I suspect you deleted the theme or new install).
Solution is use FTP to upload the extracted Stallion theme over the current /wp-content/themes/stallion-seo-theme/
When up to date future updates will be able to use the premium theme automatic updater.
WordPress Theme Install Error
I have Stallion WordPress SEO 7.1.1 installed on two sites where it works wonderfully.
I am installing it on a third. Dreamhost is my web host. This is a new installation of WordPress and Stallion.
I have very few plugins. I have deleted and reinstalled WordPress three times.
My partner and I have no idea of how to fix it. We have looked at the folders mentioned in the error but no luck.
Installing the Stallion SEO Theme via FTP
Looks like you installed Stallion in the wrong folder using FTP.
When installed correctly this link will load the main Stallion CSS file, since nothing loads Stallion isn’t in the correct location
If you log into your site using FTP you should find this folder when installed correctly
and in that folder will be amongst other files the style.css. If that’s not what you see via FTP you’ve got it wrong.
Solution is delete Stallion and reinstall.
What you might have done is install Stallion within two folders by extracting the Stallion zip file on your PC and uploading it all instead of the /stallion-seo-theme/ folder found within the extracted /stallion-theme-7.1/ folder.
Other possibilities are you renamed the /stallion-seo-theme/ folder and the name you used isn’t valid, best not to rename the folder.
Broken WordPress Theme
WordPress Theme fixed by deletion of a weird file in root directory.
We compared all files and folders via filezilla and seen one folder extra in the root directory then deleted it and now the Stallion theme and works fine.
The folder name was “.php” without quote.
WordPress Site Hacked?
I’d be worried about finding a folder that shouldn’t be there, could be your sites been hacked.
Make a backup and reinstall everything, change passwords etc… unless you are sure your site wasn’t compromised. If it is hacked you’ll probably find other files that have been uploaded to allow further access by the hacker. Been there a few years back, made the mistake of storing FTP passwords in Filezilla and running Internet Explorer with an out of date Adobe plugin (I think my PC was compromised, think a hacker downloaded the Filezilla password list which isn’t encrypted!!!: never store your passwords in Filezilla, massive security flaw) was a pain fixing the damage caused.
FileZilla Password Security
Thanks for the tip on storing passwords in Filezilla David.
I just erased the ones that I had stored there now!
In my issue that I had it was due to installing ZenCart then unistalling it …..I think. hahaha
Premium Theme Update
Just wondering when we were due a theme update as its been well over a year?
any future plans?
WordPress Responsive SEO Theme Update
Have had health problems that’s stopped me working much, hence the delay.
Been working on the code for Stallion 8.0 (WordPress Responsive SEO Theme) which should be released soon, won’t put an estimated release date in case I have to stop working again, but if nothing goes wrong Stallion 8.0 will be in it’s testing phase (I test Stallion on my sites before release) before it gets really cold outside (I’m in the UK, so winter isn’t that far away :-)).
Added some interesting new features that will help with Google Panda.
Sorry your not feeling well, I did not Know. I hope your feeling better soon, your health should always come first.
It`s cold in the north west at the moment we`ve had the Central Heating on but I`ve been told the sun will be out next week. who Knows? good old British weather.
Thanks for letting me Know about up date.
But remember Health comes first, Theme comes second.
