    Hello,

    I am having an issue with the Popularity-contest http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w-popularity/#post-4658 plugin that was installed as prescribed: Not in a subfolder. I get the error message «Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.», when I try to activate the above plugin. How can I resolve? This is my web site http://www.patrimoineacadien.com with Adii Premium News wordpress theme. This plugin is the most recent version.

    Thanks for your support.

    I thought this might help you though I get another error with this fix and did not solve my case.

    I just tried activating Popularity Contest 1.3b3 in WP 2.6.2 and received a fatal error as well. I managed to trace the errors and fix the problems.

    Replace line 59 with these two lines:
    $path = realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/../..');
    require($path . '/wp-blog-header.php');

    Replace line 1528 with:
    if (isset($_GET['action']) && $_GET['action'] == 'activate') {
