MCQ – Fatal error: cannot use string offset as an array

Q&ACategory: PluginMCQ – Fatal error: cannot use string offset as an array
dcrauwels asked 3 years ago

I’m having a problem with Multiple Choice Questions. One of the WP setups I recently installed it on doesn’t allow me to setup questions (or answers, for that matter). When I make a new MCQ and go to the ‘Questions’ tab, I get the following error:
Fatal error: Cannot use string offset as an array in /home/daviddb4/domains/ on line 266
This is inside the dashboard, mind you. On page it shows the following:
So no errors, but no content either (obviously). WordPress is up to date.
Is this a problem you have encountered before, and if so, do you have any idea how to solve it?
Kind regards and thanks in advance,

I haven’t made any edits or changes to this plugin. After doing as you said (remove plugin, delete MCQ options entries from database, reinstall) I still get the same error. Do you have any other ideas on what to do? Once again, thank you for your time.
