How to resolve the Arras Theme widget Error on WordPress 3.2

The Step by Step Guide To Resolve the Arras Theme Problem

Since the released of the WordPress 3.2 I’ve been trying to resolve widget.php error on my two website the RizalPark.Org and whenever I click the WordPress 3.2 Update Now link. I’m using Arras Theme 1.5.01 on both sites and I always have an Widget.php error when ever I update my wordpress.

Fatal error: Call to undefined method Arras_Widget_Tag_Cloud::WP_Widget_Tag_Cloud() in /home/username/public_html/wp-content/themes/arras/library/widgets.php on line 404

7 Step to Resolve the Arras Theme – Word Press 3.2 update Problem


1. First, I backup my Word Press  files and database.

2. Download the Arras Theme at:

3. Using an FTP Client,  I login to my server  and rename the arras folder at:


from “arras” to  “arras1”


If you don’t have a FTP Client you can download FireFTP from firefox plugin or you can rename it using the CPanel File Manager (if you have a cpanel access).

4.  Once you have renamed the arras folder your theme will be changed to the Word Press default theme. Go to the Appearance > Themes, then click Install Themes Tab.


5.  Click the Upload, click the “Choose File” button and locate where you downloaded file.

6. Click the Open button of the dialog box then click the “Install Now” button.

7. Then after the installation click activate then your good to go.

So that’s it, if you still have problems with the updates,  I definitely encourage you to comment below so that I can help you out with your issues.

Good Luck!
