AuthImage – Warning: Unknown modifier

  • I’ve been trying to install “AuthImage”. After making the adjustments as instructed, I decided to add a comment to my blog for testing purposes to see how it worked. Once I submitted it, I go this in the next window:

    “Warning: Unknown modifier ‘b’ in /hsphere/local/home/galen5/familywebwatch.com/blog/wp-content/plugins/blacklist.php on line 188

    Warning: Unknown modifier ‘b’ in /hsphere/local/home/galen5/familywebwatch.com/blog/wp-content/plugins/blacklist.php on line 196

    Warning: Unknown modifier ‘b’ in /hsphere/local/home/galen5/familywebwatch.com/blog/wp-content/plugins/blacklist.php on line 204

    Warning: Unknown modifier ‘a’ in /hsphere/local/home/galen5/familywebwatch.com/blog/wp-content/plugins/blacklist.php on line 188……..and lots more”

    It also said at the bottom of this list, “Cannot modify header information – headers…”

    I hadn’t tested sending a comment in a while and since I had made updates to SpamKarma and Blacklist, so I replaced the the files I modified to the ones I had before. Still got the same error messages.

    Now, even though I replaced the modified files per AuthImage’s instructions, I didn’t deactivate it, which may be part of the issue.

    One more thing about this AuthImage plugin: it said to upload all the files into my plugins directory. I did, but when I went to my Plugins panel, there were THREE plugins for it including one that was blank — just an “Activate” in the far right hand column.

    Anybody know what’s going on with this?

    Replace the modified files, but deactivate the plugins first this time. As for proper AuthImage installation, read the instructions that came with the package.

    Thanks for the prompt response, macmanx!

    It’s probably not apparent, but I did read the instructions. In fact, I found the instructions somewhat lacking as there was no reference to the fact there would be three plug-ins in the plug-in panel, nor did it say there would be one blank one. And from my interpretation, it seems that not all the files are necessary, like the authimage-alt.php file. So my faith in the instructions was slightly affected by all of that, hence my coming here.

    However, I will deactivate it this time and re-do.

    By “read the instructions that came with the package”, I meant: http://dev.wp-plugins.org/file/authimage/trunk/README.txt

    Form what I can see the blacklist thingy seems to be the problem

    It’s a blank line or a single character on the blacklist of words.

    macmanx,

    yes that’s the file I was referring to as well. If the answer is in there, then perhaps it revolves around the GDlib as a requirement. I don’t understand the part about how to check it on my server. If you could explain that part or know where I need to go to get that explanation, it would be most helpful. 🙂

    marzaroo and pods,

    I exported my blacklist to make sure I had the latest information, I did find a blank line at the end of the list and removed it. I imported it back, but still got the same error message. In the past I have made changes to files that affect WP and they didn’t work immediately, only when a little more time had passed. did they work, so maybe this is one of those times. But just in case, if it wasn’t that blank line, what other special characters should I look for?

    Thanks everyone!!!

    Sorry everyone, but I wanted to bump this one up to see if I could get a response to the two items posted above.

    Would you post those offending lines on the following site

    http://paste.uni.cc/

    That’s a cool service, alphaoide. Thanks for the reply. 🙂

    Here’s the linkk to the error messages: http://paste.uni.cc/6635

    *Not* the error message that I want.
    I want the blacklist.php

    Oh, sorry about that. When I went back to paste the list, it told me to “Go away!” That’s no joke, that’s what it said.

    However, try this: http://www.familywebwatch.com/blog/blacklist.txt

    And btw, I assumed you were asking for the text file because there is no blacklist.php file.

    No blacklist.php? That is weird. The error messages refer to that php file in plugins folder. Otherwise, I don’t see anything obvious right now.

    If you don’t have a blacklist.php file at familywebwatch.com/blog/wp-content/plugins/blacklist.php, then you shouldn’t be seeing those errors.
