Hacks don't work with Beta (6 posts)

    I'm using the latest nightly build and I can't get any of the hacks to work. As I've noted in the wiki's, the Options to enable My-hacks.php and to set "what_to_show" don't exist on the current options panel. Is there any way I can enable these hacks without using the options panel?

    Another recent build had this issue, and it was quickly rectified in the CVS.
    I have to say that altering the Wiki for this is, in my opinion, bad form. Your alteration is not version specific, and could confuse someone.

    Thanks for the info.
    Censuring someone for participating in a wiki is bad form. I added information I thought was relevant, I felt the current information was not version specific and would confuse people. I was wrong - it was just a bug - but how was I to know? The whole point of wikis are that they are a collaborative project, and rely upon those who know better to make corrections. Now that I know better I will make a correction.

    Okay... I think I wrote that wrong. Apologies.
    What I meant more was that for me, running a nightly is running a slight risk that somethings may not work as intended, but then given the dynamic nature of the program, when I have used them and when I found an error similar to yours, I posted about it here, then waited for the fix. I could have rolled back to a previous version. Either way, it was my choice to run that risk.
    As far as I am aware, reported bugs are fixed damn quick.
    As for me censuring you ... hmmm.. if you had written that the 'nightly build of xx/xx/xx' had a bug, then at least that nails it to a version. 'Current' could have meant the full release version, or the nightly, or the CVS.
    Anyway, only my pov.

    Point well taken.

    I had the problem of the hack file not working a while back, since I had been running CVS from 0.72 onward (I still do run CVS). Odd as it sounds, you might actually want to have a look in the database, under wp_options, and see if there is more than one instance of hack_file there.
    I had four or five of them, and WordPress couldn't do anything with it. Delete all but the lowest valued one, and things should return to normal, if this is the case.
    Hope this is useful.
