Spellchecker Error

I’m getting several errors from NewRelic concerning a method in the Spellchecker.php library.. Any coincidence with any other users before? The errors keep popping in my log file when a user have access to the Control Panel.

Here is the error message and the error trace.

Error message
Error: Uncaught exception ‘Error’ with message ‘Using $this when not in object context’ in /storage/av03882/www/public_html/cm/expressionengine/libraries/Spellcheck.php:1137

Sample stack trace
content_publish.php (850)
…at /storage/av03882/www/public_html/cm/codeigniter/system/core/
CodeIgniter.php (329)
in require_once called at /storage/av03882/www/public_html/cm/index.php (194)

  • Looks like that may be an a PHP 7 incompatibility, these bits should have been removed from that file:

    // Make a local reference to the ExpressionEngine super object
    $this->EE = get_instance();

    Can you remove those (three instances) and see if that resolves the issue for you?
