Error message /modules/class.module.php:153:Call-time pass-by-reference has been removed
This error message shows because your server is (now) running PHP 5.4 and an outdated version of Builder theme, or the Builder plugins (Builder Stylemanager and Builder SEO) is active on your site.
Builder theme, and Builder plugins (Builder Stylemanager and Builder SEO) need to be updated to the latest version to be compatible with PHP 5.4.
If you have a current subscription, you can download Builder, Builder Stylemanager and Builder SEO from membership page. Unzip these files to a known location on your computer. Then, you can upload the (unzipped) theme files to the
wp-content/themes/ (or the plugin files to the
wp-content/plugins/) folder using FTP or your hosting cPanel. You should Rename the existing theme or plugin folders on your server first.
