By the sounds of it, A plugin you are running has included a custom version of snoopy rather than relying on the WordPress builtin version.

The snoopy files are loaded via a require_once() AFAIK, It would be good to move the admin off the snoopy class(#4779), as for this error though, Checking to see if snoopy is allreaded loaded (if(class_exists())) could be added to the builtin snoopy file. Or the Plugin author which has included it could switch to the builtin version.

  • Keywords reporter-feedback added
  • Owner changed from anonymous to westi
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Agreed this sounds like it's plugin caused.

What plugins are you using?

Replying to westi:

Agreed this sounds like it's plugin caused.

What plugins are you using?

I did a grep for snoopy in the plugins folder and found 'Wordpress Automatic Upgrade v1.2.0.1' as the buggy one.

A fix for this is released in v1.2.0.2
