Cross-references plugin causes HTTP 500 when publishing after changing siteurl (6 posts)

    This is probably my favorite plugin. Outstanding work.

    I wanted to report a problem I ran into with this plugin. I built a site at a test URL (e.g. http://internaltest/) and once I had it how I wanted it and got approval, I moved it to the final url (e.g. http://internal/). After making all the changes described on these pages:

    everything looked fine. However, when I edited one of my posts, I kept getting an HTTP 500 error. Refreshing the page and viewing the page showed that my changes were saved properly.

    I then went through my plugins one at a time and tracked it down to this one. Deactivating and reactivating didn't solve the problem. Then I found that going to the settings page produced the same HTTP 500 page.

    The solution was to deactivate, delete all the options, then activate. Everything works again.

    Note that in addition to renaming the siteurl I also changed the table prefix. Not sure which one caused the problem, but one of them did. Hopefully this is enough info so the author can track down and fix the bug.

    Thanks and keep up the excellent work.

    Hello David,

    please note that I abandoned this plugin and will not do any changes to it, so that some day it will become outdated, as I announced on the plugins homepage. Unfortunately I do not have enough time to support it any more.

    Please try the following: Uninstall the cross-references-plugin completely. There is an tool at the plugin's setting page to do this that removes completely all plugin data from the database.

    After that, activate the plugin again, go to its settings page and set wether the references are by post id or post slug and then rebuild the plugins index (also a tool at the settings page.)

    I think this should work.

    Best regards,

    Francesc

    Thanks for the response, Francesc. I'm sorry to hear you've moved on. I'd be very interested to hear what platform you've moved to (if that's what you've done). You've done a great job on this plugin and I appreciate all your work on it.

    The steps I described in my post got me going again. The only reason I'm leaving this as unresolved is because I had to do something manually in the database to fix it. If I get a chance, I'll take a look at the code to see if I can fix the problem.

    The other thing that I need to look into supporting is in-page links (i.e. #name).

    Anyway, thanks again for all you've done here.

    David

    Hi again,

    well I've not moved to another blog platform. I have a small blog that I've now integrated with my personal homepage. I do this with a tool written by me I am experiencing with, the 'Universaltext Interpreter':

    Thank you for your kind words, good luck!

    Hello Francesc I'm willing to continue your plugin support.

    It is great and cannot be left gone!

    ATM it is working fine for me, but if it gets outdated all my posts will be broken and it will be a pain to get another plugin that does the same.

    Could I keep in contact with you, just in case I'm not able to understand what a piece of code is doing?

    Or as an alternative, is there another plugin that does the same trick?

    Hello shidouhikari,

    I am glad if you develop the plugin further.

    Of course you can contact me if you want to talk about any point, just drop me a line here:

    There are other similar plugins, but as far as I know none does exactly the same thing.

    Best regards,

    Francesc
