In testing this patch for joomla and wordpress the patch for joomla works but the wordpress patch gives a white screen with the error /s5_forte/vertex/includes/classes/widget-response.class.php on line 18.

I did a fresh install of wordpress 4.7 with no plugins added.
Installed a fresh forte template and it worked.
After installing the patch I get the above error.

That error likely means that the patch was not installed correctly.  Here are the easiest instructions for how to install the patch:

To install the patch:

1. Download the Vertex Upgrade Patch.
2. Back up your site (just in case).
3. Copy the vertex/footer.php from the theme folder to somewhere safe (you'll be putting it back after patching).
4. Delete the vertex folder from the theme (nothing else, that is the only thing to delete).
5. Extract the zip file containing the patch, and upload it to the theme folder through FTP, choosing "overwrite" if/when prompted.
6. Copy the footer.php file (from step 3) back into the vertex folder of the theme.

That's it. 

Or, to put it a different way:
1. Back up vertex/footer.php. 
2. Delete the vertex folder, then upload the extracted patch to the theme folder. 
3. Put the footer.php file back into the vertex folder of the theme.
