Description

When I go to our website the following error message appears:
Warning: Parameter 1 to ec3_filter_posts_where() expected to be a reference, value given in /home/camill11/public_html/wordpress/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 227

When I login to the back end of the website, we are unable to access any of the posts, plugins etc.. and the dashboard comes up blank with the following error message up top:

Warning: Parameter 1 to ec3_filter_posts_where() expected to be a reference, value given in /home/camill11/public_html/wordpress/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 227

Yesterday I was adding content to the media and bibliography pages, but made no changes to the plugins or structure in any way. After I added the information and links, I previewed the pages and made the updates. This seemed to be fine when I visited the site afterwards and I logged out as usual. I first noticed the issues this morning at 9am. We are unable to try to isolate the issue since we cannot access our content.

Hello creativenerve,

thanks for your report. It seems like your hoster has upgraded you from PHP 5.2 to a newer version. These warnings are produced by a plugin named "Event Calendar 3".
