  • Why release a new version only to keep breaking it every time.. should find a new plugin – any recommendations?

  • I’m also curious about something. Although I don’t get a chmod 0777 notice, I do get a request to chmod /spritegen to 0775. The server I’m working with is running suPHP, so scripts are already executing as the user account. I did not chmod the /spritegen directory as asked, but instead just hit the “Save Changes” button without changing anything, and then I received a green status bar with the message: “Your changes have been saved successfully!” Expected behavior? Any thoughts?

    @exit15 every update is meaningful. we also follow the philosophy of releasing bug fixes, etc as soon as we find them vs. waiting weeks on end to release. most of our users appreciate this. this particular series of updates is designed to make future updates easier by saving your custom shareaholic resources outside the /plugins folder — so that they don’t get overwritten each time. we would prefer you store them in the /uploads directory. you can now set this custom path via your SB admin panel.

    @claytonjames that warning came likely because the /spritegen directory did not exist when it checked permissions. it was likely created automatically when you clicked “save changes”

    Well.. the warning specifically said to cmode /spriegen. You are correct however that in the custom path was ../httpdocs/wp-content/uploads/shareaholic/. I did not set this custom path and the directory could not be automatically created. I had to manually create the /shareaholic in /uploads and then it all worked.

    Thanks a bunch… i think you need to look closer at the warning messages so that users will not go nuts.


    I had not considered that. Thank you!
