want to install 2 plugins, but both have identical functions, how to fix? (4 posts)

    hi, I wanted to install these two plugins in my blog, but they are conflicting with eachother..and I don't know how to fix that..??

    the two conflicting plugins are this one:

    http://www.lazyi.net/projects/amazon-wishlist/

    which shows your entire amazon wishlist in another page..

    and this one.

    http://www.thestrongcross.com/?page_id=14

    which shows just a random item from your wishlist in your sidebar..

    I thought that would be a cood idea, to show a random item on the side, then underneath that, have a link to the other plugin that shows your entire wishlist inside your blog on multiple pages like that....

    I currently have the random one working on my blog right now, but i tried to install the other one and I'm getting duplicate function errors all over the place :(

    anyone have an idea how to fix this?

    thanks.

    "I'm getting duplicate function errors all over the place"

    edit one of the plugins, and change the names of the conflicting functions.

    I tried that, it didn't work, it must be more then one fuction in the code causing the conflict,

    and since I am NOT a PHP programmer, I have no clue WHERE in the code to make all the necessary changes at..

    but if I did, the one I would "change" or modify, is this one..http://www.lazyi.net/projects/amazon-wishlist/

    since the other one is already functioning on my site, this one is the one I added and cannot get to work...

    thats why I asked, if it was as easy as just changing the name of a conflicting function, I wouldn't have asked, I'm not "that" dense :) I'm just not a programmer, and I tried that and I'm still getting conflicts, so I need some help from soneone who knows a little more about writing plugins then I do, which is practically zippo. hehe

    it would be helpful to know the names of the functions that are erroring .. in fact, i would like to see the errors, if there are not too many, paste them here within backticks please. If there are more than a few errors use a pastebin service to display them, or gimme a url to your blog so I can see them for myself.

    If youre willing to do one of those, ill take a look at the plugins -- Im not willing to install 2 plugins on my own blogs just to see errors that you already have.
