All Registrations CSV Report causes critical error on website 2

I started working on this before the holidays and have been on other projects since, but picking up this problem where the All Registrations Export causes a fatal failure. The initial message we say had a reference to the customization php file. That file can be read here:

Hi Jace,

I found a few mistakes with how the last two functions were closed. If you look at the ee_mer_change_event_list_url() function that starts on line 269, you’ll see there’s no closing bracket
after the return statement on line 270.

You can put a closing bracket on line 271, then remove the closing bracket on line 276.

Then do the same for after return on line 280 (add a closing bracket) then remove the closing bracket line 282.

After that, if you’re still having trouble, it may help to get the latest PHP fatal error.

Just a guess, but if there happens to be a primary registration that does not have an attendee record due to some direct database manipulation, the code in the tw_ee_populate_additional_registrants_questions_using_primary_reg function could contribute to a fatal error. This can be avoided by adding some defensive checks. For example right after where you have this:
$primary_attendee = $primary_registration->attendee();
You could add:

if(! $primary_attendee instanceof EE_Attendee) {
	return $reg_csv_array;

Thanks Josh! That worked. I’ve updated the code and included the defensive checks. Thanks!!

I deactivated the plugin to test and when I reactivated, I get this message:

The plugin generated 4 characters of unexpected output during activation. If you notice “headers already sent” messages, problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or removing this plugin.

Should I be looking for logs somewhere or are you may be able to see what might be wrong in the code?

Thanks, as always!!

It could be caused by the whitespace on line 1 before the opening PHP tag. The whitespace should be removed, then you could try activating the plugin again.
