    I've been trying to get the El-Aleph plug in to work correctly on my site. The plug-in activates with no problem but when I try to use the following tag:

    <?php aleph_the_author_profile_link(); ?>

    no link is displayed. Also, when I try to view the author list, I get a blank page. This is a page with my head and foot but no content. I don't get any error messages but instead nothing is displayed.

    I do have a static front page but in my WordPress settings I do have a posts page set.

    Please adivse. Thanks!

    Perhaps your server uses PHP4 ? Aleph requires PHP5.

    I was thinking the same thing. I was actually hoping that was it because it would be an easy fix. However, our server is running PHP 5. Thanks though.

    Uhmm, maybe it's a conflict with another plugin. How is your WordPress installation configured ? Do you have a custom wp-content folded?

    I'm still on WordPress 2.6. I have customized the Kubrick theme and have several plug-ins installed including:

    Advanced Category Excluder
    AJAXed WordPress
    Akismet
    cforms
    Cimy User Extra Fields
    CMS-like Admin Menu
    Contentboxes
    El Aleph
    El Aleph -- User Photo Support
    Gravatar
    Hidepost
    Lighter Menus
    Lock Out
    My Page Order
    NextGEN FlashViewer
    NextGEN Gallery
    pageMash
    Profiler
    Register Plus
    Role Manager
    Simple:Press Forum
    TinyMCE Advanced
    User Photo
    WordPress Exploit Scanner
    Wordpress Navigation List Plugin NAVT
    Wordpress Thread Comment
    WP-dTree
    WP Ajax Edit Comments
    WP Grins
    WP Security Scan

    I apologize for the very long list of plug ins but my hope is that one of them is known to interfere with el aleph and hopefully I can just eliminate it.

    I very much appreciate your attempt to help me troubleshoot this problem. I would love to be able to get this plug-in functional.

    As far as i know, all these plugins are compatible (i've never heard any problems), but i haven't tested all of them.

    I think maybe these plugins could create some conflicts:

    AJAXed WordPress
    Hide Post

    But i'm not really sure.

    I tried disabling those plug ins just to see what happened. The problem persisted.

    Could it have anything to do with not using the default wordpress table prefix? I changed that as a security measure when initially setting up wordpress.

    One more thought. My WordPress installation is not in my root directory. Its located at http://www.mydomain.com/site/

    Could that be it?

    Hi,

    I don't think that's the problem, but the truth is i don't know what's wrong. It seems to be a very specific problem. :(

    Maybe if you give me your url i could check some things ...

    Kinda late but I just ran into the same problem

    open up aleph-user-tags.php

    and change the function on line 177 to read

    function aleph_the_user_profile_link($caption = '', $authordata = '') {
    	if($authordata == '') global $user;
    	else $user = $authordata;
    	$profile_url = aleph_get_user_profile_url($user);
    	if ($profile_url !== false) {
    		if (empty($caption))
    			$caption = $user->display_name;
    		echo '<a href="' . $profile_url . '">' . $caption . '</a>';
    	}
    }

    This should solve your problem
