Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. Elise's page for the "Backupbuddy forum" ( http://ithemes.com/forum/forum/74-backupbuddy ) is not found.

So what is this?

Strict Standards: Non-static method ezimg::genImageTag() should not be called statically, assuming $this from incompatible context in/home1/ ...........

It shows on the importbuddy.php interface after I enter the password to import files.

Hi revenewer

You are using a very old version of importbuddy, you should download a version of importbuddy from a more recent version of BackupBuddy - the particular version you are using was obsoleted long ago.

The reason you see the PHP notice is because more recent versions of PHP apply particular checks and will flag up some conditions  such as this against older code. It doesn't necessarily mean anything breaks and you can ask your host how to configure your hosting so that such notices are not displayed in your browser (they shouldn't be anyway, if they are it is bad server configuration).

If you require any further BackupBuddy support please log in with your membership credentials for your BackupBuddy membership and post in the BackupBuddy forum as you noted above - if you cannot access that forum with the login details you used here then it means your BackupBuddy membership has expired (you can renew at a discount as a returning member) or you are using a different set of login details and you should use those for the membership that included BackupBuddy, thanks.
