Focus Theme: Customize Throws Fatal Error

By slongo15, 15 days ago. Last reply by Andrew Misplon, 14 days ago.

Using the Focus Theme on my site and trying to edit the copyright in the footer. Assuming it’s in theme settings, I go there and see this message:
Our theme settings now take advantage of the WordPress customizer. Navigate to Appearance > Customize > Theme Settings to access theme settings.

However, When I go to Appearance > Customize, I get a fatal error (it doesn’t actually crash my site but I am unable to move forward).

I’ve just updated to the most recent WordPress (6.1) and updated the few standard plugins on the site.

I am also unable to click on anything in the Theme File Editor to try to fix the error myself.

Error (*sitename swapped for security):
Fatal error: Uncaught TypeError: Unsupported operand types: string * int in /homepages/39/d140079920/htdocs/clickandbuilds/sitename/wp-content/themes/focus/inc/settings/settings.php:449

Any thoughts?

    Hi, thanks for getting in touch.

    Focus has been discontinued but the Settings submodule mentioned above is maintained. I’ve prepared a release for you to try. It should hopefully, resolve the error:

    Thanks Andrew – before I try this theme installation, will it knock out any customization currently in place? Unfortunately, since I cannot get into the Theme settings now I can’t take record of what they are. Just want to know what to expect.

    *Customization through the theme settings I mean, I understand the files themselves will be overwritten

    Sure, no problem.

    Manually updating a theme won’t impact the settings stored in the Customizer.

    Seems to have worked like a charm! Thanks so much for the super quick reply :)
