401 errors with TDO Mini Forms (2 posts)

    I'm getting a lot of errors with TDO Mini Forms relating to having moved WordPress to it's own directory I think you need to look at a way to dynamically figure out the TDOMF plugin directory somehow? The errors I receive are below:

    Error: No default author set! Create dummy user for default author automatically »
    Error: Got a 401 error when checking http://wp.test.site/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/tdo-mini-forms/tdomf-form-post.php! This will prevent posts from being submitted. The permissions may be wrong on the tdo-mini-forms folder.
    Error: Got a 401 error when checking http://wp.test.site/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/tdo-mini-forms/tdomf-form-ajax.php! This will prevent forms that use AJAX from submitting posts. The permissions may be wrong on the tdo-mini-forms folder.
    Error: Got a 401 error when checking http://wp.test.site/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/tdo-mini-forms/tdomf-style-form.css! This will make your forms, by default, look very ugly. The permissions may be wrong on the tdo-mini-forms folder.

    Hmmm... not 100% sure that it's having moved directory that is causing your errors. Why do you think this is the problem?

    Error: No default author set! Create dummy user for default author automatically »

    This error appears because you haven't create a dummy user to assign new posts/pages to. WordPress requires a user to be set as the author of a post and so, by default, TDO-Mini-Forms needs a dummy user with no rights to associate to the post. If you go to the options page, you should see a link to auto create one!

    Error: Got a 401 error when checking http://wp.test.site/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/tdo-mini-forms/tdomf-form-post.php! This will prevent posts from being submitted. The permissions may be wrong on the tdo-mini-forms folder.

    For all the "401" errors, the reason you're getting them is that TDOMF uses WordPress to try to access the external files required by the plugin. However I several hosts I've noticed that it does not allow outbounds connections so this test fails and throws up the errors.

    If you correct the first error and then try to create a form and see if it works, the errors may be only red herrings.

    Is the .../wordpress/wp-content/plugins/tdo-mini-forms/ path incorrect? Looking at the codex article, it would seem they are correct so I don't see why there is any need for dynamically figuring out paths?
