I ran into an issue today where I started getting the following white screen of death error:
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function views_include() in /*/sites/all/modules/views/includes/plugins.inc on line 9
I found several various bug reports and questions with similar errors. Some said it was a bug in views, some said it was a bug in VBO, and some reported it being issues with a specific module (like finder) none of which am I really concerned about.
My question is, since most of the solutions had to do with either commenting or uncommenting a particular line. Line 9 in views/views/includes/plugins.inc
views_include('base'), what does this line actually do? Furthermore, what is the harm/benefit of having it commented or uncommented?
For my personal part, I was able to comment out the line (which cleared the error) then clear my cache and uncomment the line without the error returning, which seems awfully bizarre.
I the code is generally something with including (libraries/functions?) for views plugins, but further explanation would be much appreciated.
