[Plugin: Simple Sidebar Navigation] No Existing Pages Display (9 posts)

    Hello,

    Thanks for this great plugin, unfortunately I can't seem to get it to work. When I add the widget to a sidebar area, there are no existing pages displayed and I can't figure out how to populate the list. So I cannot add anything to the widget. Am I missing something? Has anyone else noticed this problem?

    Thanks,
    Jonah

    Nevermind, I'm using the Role Scoper plugin and the problem has something to do with it (whether it's permission based or a conflict I haven't figured out yet).

    It might be permission base. Some one reported similar problem with permissions set by other plugins.

    Yeah I assumed this was the case too but after setting the permissions to allow my role to be able to edit pages, they still do not display. It may still be a problem with the way I have the permissions configured but I did a fair amount of configuration wrestling to try to get it to work and still no go. I'll keep trying and/or will wait to hear back from the Role Scoper forum and will post my results here.

    Thanks and if you have any other ideas, please let me know.

    Just FYI: I'm using WP's native functions to retrieve pages and posts: get_pages() and get_posts().

    Thanks, I noticed that. I still don't have a solution to this... Bummer because I'd really like to use your plugin.

    Role Scoper was assuming that all strings filtered through wp_dropdown_pages would include the select tag. Since SSN passes in only the option tags, Role Scoper thoughtfully gave you an extra nested select tag! I'm not sure your filter call is legitimate usage, but I'm modifying my code to support it and posted an RS patch.

    Thanks for helping out Kevin!

    I used wp_dropdown_pages() to create my own function since I wanted to have an ability to output pages and posts in the same selection list. It's pretty much exactly the same, I only added a few lines to grab and merge posts array into the pages.

    Any suggestions on how to make it correct on my end?
