    Same for me. The strange thing is if I deactivate the plugin and then reactivate it the user page appears but it says it's been deactivated and there's no way for them to upload any files!

    This is definately not working. I've just clean installed 3.2.1. and this is the first plugin I've installed. The initial WP Client File Share page gets created but when you create a new user with the File Sharer Role - no page is created for them.

    I'm the developer of the plugin. I'd like to help.

    Is there anyway I could get any more info about the hosting environment?

    Also, just curious. Have you tried to create a page for that user as a child of "WP Client File Share" and make that user the owner of the page?

    That would help me troubleshoot too.

    Thanks

    Thanks for getting involved in this issue. What details would you like of the hosting environment? My PHP version is 5.2.16, SQL is 5.0.92 and WP version is 3.2.1.

    What I had to do in order to add a new page as a child of the WP Client page is to first of all remove the Private permissions on the WP Client page (otherwise you are unable to add a child page to a Private page) Then create a new page with the WP Client page as the Parent page and then make them both Private!

    From there I am then able to upload files to that page but they only show up a "Download" link so you've no idea what you're downloading and you can't click to "View Page" in the WP Client Share Admin panel.

    There really are too many issues at the moment to go through them all. I'm more than happy to add you as an administrator of my Dev site. Please let me know. I'm not sure if you can send me a Private Message or anything similar?

    If you could give me admin on the dev that would be great. Just let me know if it is ok to upload test files and delete/install the plugin.

    Just to state, the plugin works on every system I have tried. There also have been people that have donated $ for it. So, it has worked for a lot, and I'll do what I can to get it to work for you.

    Hi. Should I contact you via the form on your sideways8 site? I don't want to add admin details on this forum.

    And yes, you can go ahead and upload and add whatever is required as it's purely a dev site and not the actual site it'll be installed on.

    I can't get this to work at all.
    Not for existing users or new users.
    Have deactivated, removed, reinstalled and reactived a gazillion times to no avail.
    I would also expect it to work for any other role specified (enhancement, perhaps).

    Missweblash, also, in the video and description of the plugin it says it only works with this custom role. I'm sorry that it doesn't fit your needs in that way.

    Using an unmodified version of the plugin, I did the following (using WP 3.2.1 and PHP5 on my server)

    Installed the plugin
    Activated the plugin
    Created a new user (default level Subscriber)
    Changed their role to "File Sharer"
    Saved the user profile

    The plugin continued to complain that there were no users in that role, and no page had been created.

    Another thing I found is that if I uninstalled the plugin, the File Sharer role wasn't deleted. Each time I tried to get the plug in working, it created another File Sharer role; I ended up with 6 (at least), all of which I had to remove because I couldn't tell which one was the correct one to apply to the user.

    Also, no WP File Share page(s) were created.

    Looking at the PHP code it seemed a fairly trivial matter to swap out the "File Sharer" role for the one I would like to assign to (and to disable the making of the File Sharer role in the first place). This didn't work either.

    Just out of interest, is there any particular reason the plugin was written to be tied to one particular role, rather than a user-defined role with (say) matching capabilities?

    I would also say that having a webcast is a great idea, but many organisations block video content. A text-based version of the instructions would be awesome.

    As it stands, we've resorted to using user-role based forums for sharing images. It's rudimentary, but it works.

    The problem is that you are not doing what the video says. If you can't watch the video because your organization blocks it, I'm sorry. The video says to create a user *AND* at the same time create them as a "File Sharer". There is not a hook to create the pages when you change someone to a File Sharer.

    I will fix the duplicate role creation issue. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

    To answer this question:
    "is there any particular reason the plugin was written to be tied to one particular role, rather than a user-defined role with (say) matching capabilities?"

    Yes, there is a reason we went this route and it what we did fit the need perfectly.

    If it is a "fairly trivial matter" to get the plugin to do what you need please feel free to submit changes and I will do my best to implement them in the next release.

    Same problem; but I create new user and change status to «File Sharer» at the same time...

    I use WordPress 3.2.1 (french installation) on my own server with PHP5.
    -Disabled all plugins
    -Install Client File Share
    -Enable Client File Share
    -A private page appear for Client File Share
    -Go to «new user», create one with status to «file sharer»
    -No page were create for the user... :-S

    I try to install the plugin on more than one WordPress installation(just in case); no success.

    Is it can be the french installations of WordPress, the problem ?

    Thanks !

    Numerinos, I can't think of any reason that the file share plugin would not work properly on a French install of WordPress (though I have not tested it on one). I would guess that it is more likely a conflict with the hosting platform or perhaps the theme. You mentioned that you disabled all plugins and tried the File Share plugin, did you also change to using the twenty ten theme and try it then as well?

  23. Numerinos

    Yes, I try also with twenty ten theme and did not working... :-S

    How do I check the compatibility with my hosting plateform ? What parameter Do I must have to run this plugin ?

    It is the first time I can't make a plugin work on this hosting... :-P

    Thanks a lot for helping me !

    Typically most platforms running wordpress will work correctly with the plugin, so the issue is likely not in the version of PHP or anything like that. It tends to be some of the other settings. The best case scenario would be for you to make me or Aaron an admin on your site and let us take a look at what the plugin is doing. If you want to move this conversation to email via our website http://sideways8.com/contact-us/ I will try to help you further.

    Definitely not a problem with the french installation of WordPress; I am able to make it work on localhost installation.

    So, it is a hosting problem...
    Someone has a idea for what to search ? :-S

    hello,
    I did the following:
    - I installed the plugin
    - I attributed to a user (name: "Author") the role of File Share
    - Changed the visibility of the page "WP Client File Share" from private to public
    - Created a new page called Author File Share as a parent by giving the Client File Share page WP
    - Set the visibility of both pages in private
    If I lodges with that user, Author, I see a white-screen and the url is: http://www.miosito.com / wp-admin / profile.php;
    If I go, administrator, or the tab 'File Share Client WP "under" File Share Users "I get:
    Author - View Page - Email User
    View Page link points to this url: http://miosito.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=s8_client_file_share_plugin

    I do not know if I'm wrong in something or is the plugin does not work.

    Version info:
    wordpress 3.3.1
    WP File Share Client 1.3.1

    After several attempts it works, but how can I give a user with role author the ability to read the pages of all users share files, just as it can give an administrator?

    I have the same problem. (i'm on french WP)
    When I go to the page /wp-client-file-share/ there is nothing. Just the title and comments.

    I have my own server so it is not about server restriction.

    And it work on localhost (wamp)
