What am I doing wrong? (6 posts)

    Hi,
    this plug in seems to be exactly what I need, thank you for developing it.
    Unfortunately, I can't get it to work properly. Everything seems very straightforward, but the URL that is generated just leads to this format http://mysite.com/?p=****
    which is the exact same link I can get just by previewing a draft (without needing the plugin).
    This isn't viewable by someone who isn't logged in.
    Have I picked it up wrong, does the recipient need to have an account and be logged in to view these drafts?
    Many thanks,
    Philip.

    The plugin is intended to generate a link that consists of a few parameters being a post ID, the 'shareadraft' $GET variable and a temporary share key.

    You can get an example of what I mean by looking at the screenshots: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shareadraft/screenshots/

    Your own generated links should appear similar. Are you saying that the additional URL parameters are not being outputted with the link?

    No problem @HCVNI. Do you mind sharing how you managed to resolve your issue—if there was one at all? Someone else who might experience a similar case could find the information helpful. Cheers!

    Sorry Sebastian but I had to use another plug in :(
    I appreciate you offering yours, but I couldn't wait any longer for a reply.
    Sorry I can't answer your question as I uninstalled it.
    Philip.

    That's alright, but it's not my plugin. :) I was just offering help because I read about it and may use it for myself at some point. Glad to know you found a solution that works.
