Coursepress Pro Broken Custom Functions

Since upgrading to Coursepress 2 our custom functions are broken. We have a child theme with which we provide a very customised course interface. The first two errors I have struck are these (in our custom functions.php for the child theme):

Call to a member function get_units_slug() on null in /home/[..]/themes/cpp-child/functions.php on line 47

When I removed that function call I then got:

PHP Fatal error: Class 'Course' not found in /home/[..]/themes/cpp-c
hild/functions.php on line 49

Were some functions and classes removed and/or changed between v1.x and 2.x? Our paid course is down right now as none of our custom pages are working any more.

    Hello Teckyhead,

    Sorry for the issues you were having. sometimes functions and classes names change after update. I will need your ftp credentials to debug the issue.
    You can send that privately through our contact form:

    -link back to this thread for reference
    -any other relevant urls

    **If you keep support access active then no need to send in wp-admin

    Hi Majid,

    I've done some work myself and fixed the issue with units not saving. That was actually a server issue where it was triggering a mod_security rule. I've also copied some of the templates over from the v2 theme and that allowed some more info to appear. I spent a couple of hours searching through v1.x classes and comparing to v2.x classes and fixed most of those errors. What I see now is an issue with the login page. The error that is coming up relates to line 71 in the child theme's student-dashboard.php:

    PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined method CoursePress::instance() in [..]/cpp-child/student-dashboard.php on line 71

    I also see a lot of undefined notices in the debug log:

    PHP Notice: Undefined index: mandatory
    PHP Notice: Undefined index: assessable

    Now that I can see the course units list there is another issue. Most of the units are locked and displaying:

    Opens Jun 02, 2015

    I have been through all units and changed them to 'available immediately' but this hasn't fixed it (besides that fact that Jun 2015 was nearly 2 years ago).


Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
