    After upgrading to jQuery Colorbox 4.1, the two panels "Top donations" and "Latest donations" trigger this error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function xmlrpc_encode_request() in /web/htdocs/www.example.com/home/wp-content/plugins/jquery-colorbox/includes/donationloader.php on line 117

    I am using WordPress 3.2-RC2.

    Hi,

    you get the errormessage because your server doesn't have the xmlrpc module installed/activated.
    It shouldn't be a problem, it's just that the donations will not be loaded.
    Cheers,

    This problem is worth fixing. I am on DreamHost, as are most of my many clients using WordPress, and they will all get this error.

    I used to enjoy looking at the jQuery colorbox settings and seeing the donations. If the old way worked, why not go back to the old way? That's my vote.

    If you won't do that, at least do a function_exists() before displaying the boxes, so everyone doesn't see the error. If your fancy new functionality is going to fail, allow it to fail gracefully.

    Hi,
    the reason I changed the implementation is that I wanted the donations to be loaded asynchronously after the property page is loaded.
    I'll probably add a function-check in the future.

    This seems to be the way to enable XMLRPC on DreamHost, by the way:

    You'll also need that if you ever want to access your WordPress installation through a client, like the iPhone app, MarsEdit or some other tool.

    Cheers,
    Arne

    I'm seeing this problem too, but XMLRPC does seem to be installed and working on my Dreamhost site. For example, I am able to log in and view/edit posts via the WordPress Android app.

    I am using WP 3.2.1. The errors are not a real problem for me, but I saw this thread and thought I'd mention that enabling XMLRPC doesn't seem to be the issue.
