Displays rotating entrepreneurs the blogger has invested in publicly, with pictures and links back to Kiva.org.
What is Kiva.org?
A micro-lending site applications. http://kiva.org
Will it show private loans?
No, it will only show your public Kiva loans.
How do I change the look of the Kiva Loans Widget?
The style sheet is in the plugin folder at /wp-content/plugins/kiva-widget/style.css
What if I get the json_decode error?
If you get the following error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: json_decode() in wp-content/plugins/kivaorg-widget/kiva.php
This error means that you do not have PHP JSON.s support installed on your server. JSON support became a part of the PHP core in PHP 5.2.0. The best way to handle this error is to upgrade your PHP to the newest stable available version. Most Linux distributions will have packages for upgrading. On Windows, you can go to the PHP Downloads page. For more information, check out the PHP JSON Manual.
What if I get the Permission Denied error
Warning: fopen( wp-content/plugins/kivaorg-widget/cache/kiva_cache_1241553368.txt) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied
This error means that improper permissions are set within the Kiva widget directory on your server. The directory .cache. within the widget must be writeable by your server.s web users. You can fix this problem by changing the ownership of the directory .cache. to the web user. Most likely one of the following command will work, if performed within the plugin directory ( wp-content/plugins ):
chown www-data:www-data kivaorg-widget/cache
chmod 777 /kivaorg-widget/cache
Why are the loan images not displaying?
Kiva has moved it's images to a different location. Some images are unaffected, while others will be missing in the plugin. Version 2.1 of this widget now handles these moved images. Please upgrade to the newest version of the Kiva.org Loans Widget
