[Plugin: MailChimp] Plugin settings URLs (5 posts)

    I have recently discovered that all of the settings URLs for all of the plugins point to the same plugin, MailChimp. For example, when I mouse over the Settings link of any of the plugins, the URL is shown as "wp-admin/options-general.php?page=mailchimpSF_options". When I deactivate the MailChimp plugin, the Settings link disappears for all of the plugins. I have tried reinstalling the MailChimp plugin but nothing changed.

    I can't say what has changed though I did have to reinstall the User Access Manager plugin when an update failed. I had not checked the URLs before the reinstall so I can't say if they were working or not.

    Any ideas or any more information I can provide to help?

    I have the same problem. I think that it ia a mailchimp plugin bug, but I'm not sure of it. I'm using wordpress 3.2.1 amd mailchimp 1.2.5.
    Can somone from mailchimp give us an asnwer?

    UPDATE:

    Hey guys!

    As my man MC_Van pointed out in that thread you linked to, what we're seeing on this end is that the MailChimp 1.2.5 plugin is adding an additional "Settings" link to all plugins. So, this means that if a plugin doesn't have a settings link originally, we'll add one that links to the MailChimp settings. Obviously not ideal, but it's something that will DEFINITELY be addressed in the next version that comes out.

    From what we've seen thus far, when the MailChimp plugin is deactivated, those extra settings links go away. So, if a plugin is missing a "Settings" link after deactivating MailChimp 1.2.5, that should mean that the plugin didn't have any sort of settings link to begin with. Of course, if you do notice something weird, give us a shout back and we'll see if there is any specific behavior that we can replicate.

    Cheers
