    After I recently updated to the latest version of this plugin, I can no longer save the title of my widget. When I type in a title and hit save, it just blanks the title input box. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm using the latest version of Firefox.

    Hi wramos,

    I just updated my widget's title and it worked fine. Can you please take a screenshot of that before and after hitting the save button?

    Yes, this is a HUGE problem with the latest version. The widget title doesn't save, then the code is mis-formatted, and the whole sidebar goes to hell.

    Trust me, I've spent over an hour trying to find out why and realized that the issue was I upgraded the plugin. Reverted back to 2.0.3 and all was good again.

    Running WordPress 2.9.2

    Can you guys post here your sites' URL? Need to see the actual code that WPP is generating.

    I'm working on TopRankBlog.com and WPP is integrated into the tabbed widget on the side.

    Like I said, I downgraded so my issue has been cleared up.

    Other details:
    - Even when WPP wasn't a part of the tabbed widget on the side, it still didn't work correctly.
    - I tried re-setting all the data for WPP.
    - I tried de-activating the plugin and re-activating.
    - There were no JS errors in Firefox's error console.

    Mmm that's odd. However, can't tell what might be happening as I'm unable to reproduce the bug locally. I even tried wramos' setup and everything worked without any problems.

    Anyways, I'm already working on v2.1.1 which solves some issues and will include a couple improvements. Maybe you wanna try it to see if it fixes the title issue you mentioned. Download it here.

    Here's the link to one of my sites where the title is not saving:

    Just update above site with v2.1.1 and still can't save title in widget. Now it displays "2.0.3" where the title should be. Typing in a title in the widget and clicking on Save just blanks the title box as before.

    Appreciate your help with this. Would love to get this working again.

    Thanks for coming back and confirming this, wramos! I'll do some minor changes on the beta and release it officially within the next couple of days.

    Thank you for your feedback!

    No prob. Unfortunately- I've run across problem that just sprung up after installing the latest beta version. It doesn't appear that the image thumbs for the posts are being created any more.

    See sidebar "What's Hot This Month" to see what I'm talking about.

    Any ideas what to check for?

    Thanks again, Ikki24

    wramos, I'm seeing a thumbnail for each post on your list - except the one on top.

    Currently, if my plugin doens't find an image on a determined post (no images have been attached to the post, nor have a selected image under "Featured image"), no image will be displayed. The beta version has been updated just now and will show a default image if none is found.

    By the way, just checked your site and noticed another minor bug on my plugin: it's not printing your posts' titles on the popular list. You might want to download the updated beta version of WPP to fix that and to test the default thumbnail feature (there are no visible options for this on the Widget control, instead you'll see a new image on the wordpress-popular-posts folder called no-thumb.jpg which you can replace with your own if desired).

    Download WordPress Popular Posts 2.1.1 Beta.

    Thanks again! Just downloaded and installed the latest beta (above) and seems to have fixed the title problem- but I still don't get why it's not creating some of the thumbnails even when the posts definitely do have an image attached to them such as this post.

    Not to be the bearer of bad news or anything, but I found another problem that made it so that I had to deactivate the plugin. Now when activated, some of the buttons in the page/post editor don't work. Like when I upload a file under "Add Media" and try clicking on any of the buttons "None", "File URL", "Post URL" have no effect. Can be a real drag when I need to know what the url to the file I just uploaded is but it's blank and clicking on the "File URL" button doesn't do anything.

    Maybe related, but I also have Headspace2 installed and it also causes the "Yahoo Suggest" buttons for tags to stop working as well.

    Let me know if there's any info I can provide you that may help.

    Don't worry, it's alright!

    Anyways, try disabling all your plugins. Then, re-enable WordPress Popular Posts alone and check again.

    I'm having the same no title save issue. Have deleted and re-installed plugin. Still broken.

    Thanks.

    Checking in Firebug...looks like the widget title isn't there at all.

    Ikki24: Actually that's what I did in the first place to find out which plugin was causing the trouble. I disabled all plugins and then re-activated each one by one until the buttons in the editor failed. It happened as soon as I reactivated WPP. I have a quite a few plugins so there definitely could be a conflict with WPP and another that I'm using but it'll take awhile to figure out. I'll have to deactivate all of them again and then only re-activate WPP and then re-activate the rest one at a time to see if I can figure out which one it is. If I had to guess, it would be Headspace2. If you have any ideas how I can help trouble shoot this that would be easier/less time consuming, I'd be all for that. ;)

    Thanks!

    @azzcat: a few comments ago, I posted a download link to WordPress Popular Posts 2.1.1 Beta. Please install it, it should fix the title issue you just reported.

    @wramos: until now, nobody had ever reported another plugin conflicting with WordPress Popular Posts. You're already doing a lot to help me out, so thank you for that :) Anyways, please do deactivate them all, and then proceed to enable WPP alone. If everything works as expected, then go and activate HeadSpace2 and check again. That'll tell if you if HS2 is the one causing the issues.

    By the way, I did some research and found that the get_the_post_thumbnail function (used by my plugin to retrieve thumbnails selected by the user) appears to be a bit buggy:

    Reported by: Denis-de-Bernardy

    it seems like the new post thumbnail feature neither crops images, nor uses thumbnail images when available.

    get_the_post_thumbnail() and set_post_thumbnail_size() seem to use the size of post-thumbnail, but image_downsize() only seems to understand a size of thumbnail.

    this results in huge images in posts, even when the size is small.

    http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/11913

    The guy who reported it also posted a patch that might solve the issue.

    This might explain why WPP won't use the image you selected and displays the default thumbnail instead.

    I'm going to wait for a bit until a new version of WordPress is released hoping that it fixes the no thumbnail issue you reported earlier. If it doesn't, then I'll open a new ticket on WordPress Trac to notify this issue again.
