    Impossible to activate Cross-Linker with WP 2.5.1
    -
    "This plugin was not activated because it triggered a fatal error."
    -
    Has anybody experienced the same bug?
    -
    This plugin used to work fine, previously. I like it.

    That's the fate of the plugins. Some work with newer WP versions, others don't.
    Add it to the list: http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins/Plugin_Compatibility/2.5

    Thanks, Moshu.

    I have just tried again to enable it (now that I have installed the patch for 2.5.1).

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

    For your information, that plugin was perfect (before that bug). A great plugin. I hope this will be fixed soon.

    Hi chrisfmasse, I got (probably) your email and I am going to sort out the problem in a next few days. I was working on other projects last month so I had no chance to test this plugin under newest WP versions.

    Great.
    Fantastic.
    What's funny is that all was fine with WP 2.5, but things turned wrong with WP 2.5.1.
    Thanks,
    Chris Masse

    Hi Chris :) ,

    It is fixed now and successfully tested. Feel free to download it.

    BTW, deactivation of the version 1.2 (and those which will be released later) will not cause any data lose. Thus no MySQL table will be dropped. Man can activate/deactivate it million times and whole configuration will be still there.

    Thanks, without your email I wouldn't know that something is wrong with activation!

    Thanks a lot.
    Look like blogroll importation was added. Will test that.

    As for SQL table, great. But then you might update that line:
    "If you're upgrading this plug-in, then do not deactivate it! Deactivation means that all data from the current installation will be lost! We designed this plug-in to be easy for further installations and thus you have to copy new files into it's folder only (once it's installed)!"
    -
    I'll make sure to tell you if I have further remarks.
    -
    Thanks again,
    Chris Masse

    PS: Maybe I should close this thread.

    Yeah, thanks Chris for the note about deactivation. It will be deleted, but not now... Today I released 3 versions and I think it's enough ;) . I feel like fool that I didn't check all features and updates properly before uploading new versions, so let's wait until some normal updates are done... Then I will also remove the paragraph about deactivation :) .

    Thanks a lot for your help, it is cool :) .

    ...Who knows how to close thread...

    Plugins like this are great, but it seems pretty rare to see one that's done right.

    This matches keywords in a post repeatedly, which even in the most ridiculous situations is still excessive, and leads to link-litter. I'm not sure why anyone would want every instance of a word to be linked.

    As your list of keywords grows, so does the chance that you'll end up with posts that are more link than content. Really only the FIRST mention of a keyword should be linked.

    check out these posts on your own website. How many times do you really need the term 'php' to be linked?

    Also, there needs to be more intelligent matching of terms so that only words or phrases not contained within other words are matched. For example, on your pages php should match, but phpbb, or <?php should NOT match.

    If you can do something like this with a simple keyword add/remove interface, then you'll be the only one.

    So far the best I've seen that achieves all this is alinks, but its cumbersome and focused on afiliate links, and the keyword interface is overly involved. Someone please make a nice LEAN auto-linker, please ;)

    This matches keywords in a post repeatedly, which even in the most ridiculous situations is still excessive, and leads to link-litter. I'm not sure why anyone would want every instance of a word to be linked.

    Solution is really simple: Use

    <!--nocrosslink_start--> text this and text that <!--nocrosslink_end-->

    Really only the FIRST mention of a keyword should be linked.

    Solution is simple too: Just activate this control (Manage/Cross-Linker):

    Hyperlink 1 word only? (not recommended; valid for 1 post)

    or <?php should NOT match.

    Very easy solution: Just delete ? or whatever from "Ignored characters"

    So please post criticism after complete understanding of the thing :) .

    Found another issue witht his plugin

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare mt_add_pages() (previously declared in /www/public_html/mysite/wp-content/plugins/smartsort.php:104) in /www/public_html/mysite/wp-content/plugins/cross-linker/crosslink.php on line 36

    Seems like it doesnt get along with smart sort plugin

    @baalam: Yes, it's the reason. The same complaint could be pointed at the smart sort plugin :) .

    Anyway, I will maybe change the function name.
