    The sanitize_callback parameter needs to refer to a function that accepts at least two parameters or a variable argument length. The two parameters send to the callback are 1.) the value of the setting and 2.) the instance of WP_Customize_Setting. Using a callback that only accepts one parameter may result in a customize validation failiure upon saving or a PHP warning (see error log).
