[resolved] Directory errors from Diamond MS Widgets (5 posts)

    Ever since updating the the most recent version of WordPress, Diamond Multisite Widgets have been giving errors when displaying recent posts (same result with the other widgets too). Just as an example, take a look at the right-hand sidebar here:

    http://wordpress.ed.pacificu.edu/

    Those four errors were not there pre-Wordpress 3.1.2. Any idea what might be wrong or how to fix it? Thanks.

    At first look, your webserver's configuration is wrong. Zhe wp-content directory need write pesmission. Our cache want to write into file.
    If you can't vhange your webservers settings try to turn off the cache (set to 0 the cache time)

    Hi Daniel,

    I can get the webserver settings changed, no problem.. which specific directories/files does Diamond Multisite Widgets needs write access to?

    I already tried changing the permissions on this specific file:

    /wordpress/wp-content/plugins/diamond-multisite-widgets/diamond-cache.php

    It didn't fix the problem. Does the whole diamond-multisite-widgets folder need to be given write access? Thanks for working on this!

    Ok, a quick update on this one.. I was able to fix the issues by changing the write permissions for this directory:

    /wordpress/wp-content/plugins/diamond-multisite-widgets/

    Simply setting the cache timer to zero did not work. Thanks again for a great plugin!

    Daniel Bozo: Have you considered putting the cache file in a more write-friendly location? It is not recommended to leave plugin directories writable in general because if a hacker takes over your site they can insert files that will get included in WP.

    Instead you should consider moving the cache file to /wp-content/uploads, that way you can be confident it will be writeable because if /uploads/ isn't writeable then you can't upload images, so it will work for almost everyone. Putting it there will help people who keep tight permissions on their plugins directory and also make your plugin more standard.

    Thanks for considering it,
