I’ve just spotted a couple of possible bugs (using plugin v1.7.62)…
1) I recently changed the name of my /wp-content folder to /content (which makes it a little harder to guess). I did this by renaming the folder itself on the server, and then updating the WP_CONTENT_URL and WP_CONTENT_DIR variables in my wp-config.php file.
Afterwards, my website had this error at the top of every page (outward facing):
Warning: file(/PATH/TO/MY/public_html/wp-content/plugins/statpress-community-formerly-statcomm/def/banips.dat) [function.file]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /PATH/TO/MY/public_html/content/plugins/statpress-community-formerly-statcomm/statcomm.php on line 777
(I’ve modified the “/PATH/TO/MY” part in the above error for my own privacy)
As you can see, the first path mentioned in the error makes reference to the /wp-content/ folder, which no longer exists. The second path at the end of the error shows the correct folder as /content/.
I opened the statcomm.php file and found three references in there to /wp-content, on lines 774, 775 and 777. There is also another reference on line 960.
I changed the references on 774, 775 & 777 to just /content and then the error message went away, so I seem to have fixed the bug for now. But I think the correct solution is for the plugin to take the true location of the content folder from the WP_CONTENT_DIR variable.
Can you fix this?
2) I also noticed, inside the statpress-community-formerly-statcomm.zip file (the plugin file downloaded from http://downloads.wordpress.org) that there is an extra copy of the plugin folder structure within itself.
So within the /statpress-community-formerly-statcomm folder are all the plugin files and folders – statcomm.php and so on. But there is also another subfolder in there called /1.7.62 and inside there is another copy of all the files and subfolders including statcomm.php. I think this might be a mistaken duplicate? 🙂
