[resolved] Activated, so where is it? (29 posts)

    I don't know if I'm just being stupid but I can't see where the plugin is to edit the settings.

    I installed, activated, fine. But I can't find it.

    Your installation instructions say to go to 'options' I don't know if that's old and I can't see what translates as that in the newer version of WP.

    Can you help please?

    Same problem here. Cannot find the options page for the plugin, actually can't find the plugin at all...

    I have the plugin in 'plugins' just no idea where to change settings.

    Beginning to think that's it's not really compatible with 3.4.2.

    Same issue here. Running 2.0.1 on 3.4.2

    It does not show up on 3.4.2 for me either. I rolled back to 1.8.1 and everything is fine again.

    The rewritten plugin is not ready yet for us, at least under 3.4.2

    Hi all. Sorry, for some reason, I didn't get email or RSS notification of this thread.

    You should find the settings page under Dashboard -> Settings -> cbnetdppp Options.

    Please let me know if you don't find it there. I tested it exclusively under 3.5-RC, but there shouldn't be any issues with 3.4.x.

    Hi Chip,

    I'm sorry but it's not there. The plugin is in the plugin section (activated), but the settings are nowhere to be found.

    I've uploaded a screencap of the settings page.

    You don't see anything under Dashboard -> Settings?

    Another question: are you, by chance, using a username that is not an Administrator?

    I get what you mean, but unfortunately no. All the other plugin settings pages are there but not this one.

    Maybe it's because we upgraded the plugin simply by replacing the old one?

    On the second question; Also no. I'm the sole administrator.
    It's not my first WordPress website and know my way around the admin things but it's really not there.

    No. I deinstalled completely and yet there is no settings in the options. Something gets broken with 2.x while 1.8.1 works

    Hmm, well, then that's not the problem either. Seems to me like a 3.4.x issue or ownership issue why it's stays hidden.

    I think I found a typo (silly search-replace error), that would cause the problem. Though, I have no idea why it isn't breaking for me.

    Anyway, would one of you mind testing something for me?

    In the options.php file, line 434, can you change:

    edit_Plugin_options

    to

    manage_options

    ...and let me know if that fixes the problem?

    Thanks!

    It worked! Yay! Thank you!

    I hate problems like this, when it turns out to bit just the smallest thing, in a hard to find place.

    Thanks again.

    @virtualmotorpix thanks for confirming! I'll push out a bugfix ASAP.

    I've just pushed out Version 2.1, which fixes this bug.

    Note: I've also moved the Plugin settings from their own custom settings page to Dashboard -> Settings -> Reading. I think that is more intuitive, since that's the same place where the default posts_per_page is set for the blog posts index/archives.

    Thanks again for using the Plugin, and let me know if you have any other issues!

    Hi Chip,

    Don't know why but when I replace the old plugin with the new one (update of today), my whole website turns blank..

    I can't recreate this on my end.

    Can you enable debug (i.e. set define( 'WP_DEBUG', true ); in wp-config.php, and report back any fatal error messages you have?

    The problem is that I cannot activate it anymore cause it's a live site with 10k+ visitors a day.

    I'll try during the night.

    No problem. Let me know when you get the chance; just post any error messages here.

    Not that it would affect you, as you're running WordPress 3.4.2, but the Plugin now requires at least WordPress 3.3, due to use of the is_main_query() function. But, if you were running an older version of WordPress, that change would result in an undefined function fatal error.

    Well, I tried anyway..

    Didn't get any fatal error messages and no warnings related to your plugin. Just white pages.

    No fatal error messages on either the front end or back end? A WSOD generally means a fatal error somewhere. Do you have WP_DEBUG enabled?

    Also: do you have any other Plugins (or Theme) that interacts with loop queries?

  25. Martijnchel

    No, also not in the back-end.
    Yes, I had WP-DEBUG enabled.

    About the plugins; I really don't know for sure, but probably yes since we use about 20 plugins.

    In the back-end there was no white screen by the way. Only the front-end.

    If you're willing, can you post a list of active Plugins (and let me know what Theme you're using)?

    In the back-end there was no white screen by the way. Only the front-end.

    That makes me even more strongly believe that the issue is your Theme, or another Plugin. Something somewhere is probably doing something with query_posts() or something similarly _doing_it_wrong(), but, it could be just an honest incompatibility. I'll be happy to investigate.

    if you want to take a look at the website, let me know where to send an e-mail.

    Theme: Techblog (newest version, Themeforest)

    As it is a commercial Theme, I can't provide specific support, but please check to see if your Theme uses query_posts(). If so, that is almost definitely the problem.

    (To verify that the problem is Theme-related, switch to Twenty Eleven, and see if you still get the WSOD.)

    If that's the case, you might let the Theme developer know. Using query_posts() is always _doing_it_wrong(), and causes just this sort of problem.

    To modify the main loop query, filter pre_get_posts.

    To create secondary, custom loops, use WP_Query().
