I was a great admirer of RobLog's 'Now Reading' plugin. It was my favourite plugin, being a bit of a book geek. Ever since WP 2.5 or so, however, it has not worked.
I can install it, activate, and search for books, but when I try to add a book, I get a 404 error while Now Reading is trying to execute
/now-reading/admin/add.php. According to RobLog's support page, there have been a lot of others with this problem as well. His recommended solution of resaving permalinks seems to helped some, but not all.
I have tried deactivating all of my plugins except Now Reading, I've tried switching to the default theme, removing all widgets, assigning full permissions to world to add.php, and combinations thereof. I've used PhPMyAdmin to drop any tables that contained any references to the plugin or its options. I even moved my site to a new server and rebuilt the site from scratch, and it still gets the same error (that's how obsessed I am with figuring this out).
It looks like Rob's not too motivated these days about this plugin, but perhaps someone else experienced this and figured out a solution?
Here's some info about my server:
WordPress 2.6.2, installed in root
Linux kernel: 188.8.131.52-grsec
Apache: 1.3.41 (Unix)
I'm loathe to give up, but I think I'll be packing it on soon.
Thanks for any advice.
