Q&A plugin search returning an error

When I use the search functionality of the Q&A plugin, I ge the following error:

Warning: Illegal offset type in isset or empty in /home/content/96/6926896/html/wp-includes/post.php on line 811

and it does not take to to a page with any of the questions listed, but rather the normal archive page.

Any idea what might be going on here? Thanks!

    In response to David’s question, yes everything else works. FYI, there is a conflict with the wp-polls plugin. This doesn’t allow voting, which make sense since they probably tie into the same hooks.

    I’ve installed the BP Business theme and I still can’t reproduce the error. I’m guessing it’s a search-related plugin that’s messing with the ‘post_type’ query variable, transforming it into an array.

    Please try disabling any such plugin and see if the error goes away.

    PS: The conflict with WP-Polls was already reported and fix will be present in the next release.

    Sorry for not replying sooner. I have been searching high and low to see what code I could be using that is causing the search not to work. Searches for my other custom post types work, so I am not sure. You can mark the issue as resolves since this seems to be a problem with my site alone.

    Thank you very much for checking-in.
