wp-db.php has a bug around line 1616 (most recent version as of 11/30/2014)

They error reported is:
Debug Warning: ...\wp-includes\wp-db.php line 1622
mysql_fetch_object(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource

A similar comes up under different circumstances that basically states that the result is a boolean, not an object.

The solution is to make a test as to whether or not the result is an object using is_object as follows:

$num_rows = 0;
if ( is_object($this->result ) ) {
if ( $this->use_mysqli ) {

while ( $row = @mysqli_fetch_object( $this->result ) ) {

$this->last_result[$num_rows] = $row;


} else {

while ( $row = @mysql_fetch_object( $this->result ) ) {

$this->last_result[$num_rows] = $row;
