    i am getting this when i try to add a date to the widget on my site.
    http://HoneyTrek.com

    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    i get that from the plugin page where i am going to add a new date. then i click save changes all the way at the bottom of the page.

    thanks.

    the timer actually updates, but it takes me to a white page with the words "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." no wordpress header or footer. then the changes i made update on the site, so not a huge deal i guess. thanks for replying!

    I believe this is not an issue related to the plugin, but an issue related to your WordPress installation. I did a quick Google search and saw that it might be related to a file or folder permissions issue, or it could be the result of an WordPress upgrade that had a problem.

    You might want to check that out :) Happy travels!

    hmmmm. how do i look into this? no idea what folder might not have permissions, etc. think it is a big deal if this pluggin is working? or might be the cause of a few other issues i am seeing as well?

    I would start here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions

    It could be a potential security issue, so it's worth looking into.

    fergbrain, thanks for that link, but that stuff is above me, i have changed permissions before in my FTP client, but in this instance i have no idea what files to change and what might be a "security issue".

    thanks if you can let me know a few files to check and what to make sure they are set at. but if you cant i understand.
