    Getting a Parse error upon install. 5.6+ php installed

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘[‘ in /themes/fusion/inc/helpers.php on line 134

    line 134 $categories = [];



    Sorry about that- we did not run into bug when testing 5.6 and I’m testing on a 5.6 environment and can’t seem to reproduce this error.

    That error sounds like one from an older version of PHP (<5.4). Could you double check and make sure you're on 5.6?

    One other thing we can try is changing that line in helpers.php to this:

    $categories = array();

    If that resolves it, there may be a hidden character causing a bug, but if you get another error, it’s probably indicative of an issue with the PHP library.



    If you’re still having trouble, feel free to privately post back here with your login credentials and cPanel credentials and I’ll be glad to take a look for you first thing in the morning.



    Hi there, I’m getting the same issue.
    I tried changing line 134 as suggested but now I get the same problem in /wp-content/themes/fusion/inc/elementor.php on line 24.
    Any help would be appreciated,



    I got the same error … reinstalled the theme manually and it got uploaded … but theme documentation is very poor



    Hi @Peethe – We never got a response back from the original poster, but I believe the issue was that the PHP version was not in fact 5.6 or greater. Please confirm that you have 5.6+ or feel free to post back if you still have the issue and are running a version greater than 5.6.

    @inkamating – Sorry if you ran into trouble here, however if you were able to install successfully on manual upload, this implies a corrupt file and potentially an issue with your WordPress install. There’s not much we can do to help there as it’s not a theme issue. I’m also curious which part of the theme documentation you feel is poor.
