    Hello! ;)
    My client's site that I created was working fine and now suddenly the Testimonials feature doesn't work for the site. This problem may have been introduced when I updated WP to the newest version? It seems that the testimonials are still showing up on the site, but they don't display any longer in the Dashboard Testimonials panel (thus, I cannot edit existing testimonials and I cannot add new testimonials).

    I see the following error message on the Dashboard, in the Testimonials panel:
    "Fatal error: Call to protected method WP_List_Table::row_actions() from context 'mysiteTestimonial' in /home/steph54631/public_html/wp-content/themes/construct/lib/admin/classes/testimonials.php on line 135". I don't understand how to fix this. HELP?! This is my client's site and she is needing me to add new testimonials and edit existing ones.
    Here is the code on lines 134 and 135 of the testimonials.php file:
    < $actions = apply_filters( is_post_type_hierarchical( $post->post_type ) ? 'page_row_actions' : 'post_row_actions', $actions, $post );
    echo WP_List_Table::row_actions( $actions ); >

    The site is:
    Specifically, Testimonials page is:
    I have testimonials rendering on the Testimonials page as well as sprinkled throughout other pages on the site.

    I have attached a screen shot of the error message in the Testimonials panel.

    UPDATE: I did some searching on the forums (SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS FIRST, SORRY!) -- And came across this post:

    that contained the following very helpful info from Webtreats:
    Hi bloglines,

    Try replacing this file on your server:

    With the one attached to this post, don’t forget to unzip the file.

    Let me know if it resolves your issue.
    You can download the zipped testimonials.php file that Webtreats included in his/her post directly from that post.

    My problem was that when I updated to WordPress 4 I could not edit the testimonials anymore in the back end. And I could only see one, although it was telling me there were 30 items. Applying the above fix solved the problem. I am using Myriad.
    Thanks for sharing tillsey.

  4. I experienced this same problem with Awake 3.6 with WP 4.0.1.
    The file fixed the problem - the missing list of testimonials was restored.

  5. Glad I found this. I was shocked today that I couldn't access mine either. Always something with WordPress! I'm using the InFocus theme, I'll try this fix.
