PDO Statement failed to prepare

Hello all, i am getting this statement when i try to execute any type of search on a new site i am setting up. I used a clean fresh install, with bootstrap theme. I was able to work out the major kinks with incompatible plugins and such. I still have one issue which is remaining and i need help.

in the search bar i am returning the error statement PDO Statement failed to prepare|Gdn_Database|Query|The used SELECT statements have a different number of columns

I checked the the search class module and it seems to be okay, leading me to then check the sql driver, but thats a monster of a file to debug.

I see this has happened to others on a fresh install but i don't see any comments or documentation on the event. Thanks for your help in advance.

    Try running /utility/structure

    What plugins are you using?

    well if you want the full list thats a ton, but can provide. But dont think its the issue unless you know of one specifically, that is interfering, i selectively disabled them all to try and narrow that down, cause usually conflict of pluggins is the place to start

    Also, i forgot to mention, i did run utility and executed the scripts and changes were accepted. But still displaying there error.

    I figured it out. The Vanilla CMS addon is not compatible with the bootstrap theme, i understood that it is no longer developed but usually can make minor adjustments on my own. Anyways, thanks for you help!
