Catchable fatal error: Genesis_Admin_CPT_Archive_Settings

This error has been occurring for some people using Genesis themes. The error looks something like this:

“Catchable fatal error: Argument 1 passed to Genesis_Admin_CPT_Archive_Settings::__construct() must be an instance of stdClass, instance of WP_Post_Type given, called in wp-content/themes/genesis/lib/admin/menu.php on line 122 and defined in wp-content/themes/genesis/lib/admin/cpt-archive-settings.php on line 38”

You may also be experiencing “the white screen of death” when you try to login to your WordPress admin area.

Why You’re Getting This Error
