    Upon activation of the plugin the following fatal error is generated. Any thoughts?

    "Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Warning: require_once(/home3/llcsdcom/public_html/wp/wp-content/plugins/yikes-inc-easy-mailchimp-extender/classes/class.yksemeBase.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home3/llcsdcom/public_html/wp/wp-mycontent/plugins/yikes-inc-easy-mailchimp-extender/yikes-inc-easy-mailchimp-extender.php on line 51

    Hi Lab Lover.

    Thanks for letting us know about this. We are closed tomorrow for Halloween, but we will look at this on Friday.

    At a quick glance, it looks like the path is odd "/public_html/wp/wp-mycontent/plugins/" it is expecting "/public_html/wp/wp-content/plugins/"

    Our programmer can give you a more detailed answer on Friday.

    Yes, changing the name of the wp-content directory is a security precaution and is facilitated by the "Better WP Security" plugin used by millions of WordPress sites.

    Your plugin did install itself in the proper location but I suspect somewhere in your code your plugin must have the "Wp-Content" path hard coded as opposed to referencing the WordPress internal constant for the proper path.

    Please see the WordPress codex for further information:

    Hi Lab Lover.

    We fixed this on the pre-release version of the plugin on Github:

    Thanks for bringing it to our attention!
