Support » Plugin: Contextual Related Posts » Experiencing a Technical Issue update 3.0.0

  • Resolved Priyo Harjiyono


    I had updated this plugin after new release version 3.0.0 but then my WP dashboard can’t be accessed. Web was experiencing a technical issue, when I going to recovery mode, I found that, issue was caused by Contextual Related Post update.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘)’ in ***/wp-content/plugins/contextual-related-posts/includes/admin/help-tab.php on line 50

    I found a ‘comma’ at line 49 and 64 caused the bug, when I remove them, the plugin works as usual

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Please open your own support topic, unless you have absolutely same issue as OP,
    1) updated your site to same plugin version
    2) have exactly same message in error log after update

    Bit of a pointless reply…

    What is the point in opening a new topic, if it’s the same issue? There’s clearly a problem in the code. I have the exact same issue as the OP. Looks like a simple problem in the mentioned php file.

    Thanks for reporting and sorry that it didn’t show up in any of my testing across multiple sites!

    I’ve pushed v3.0.1 which should fix this issue.

    Awesome – thanks Ajay. And while I’m here, thanks for this plugin. It’s the only one I’ve found that pulls related posts in this way. And it has done wonders for me SEO.

    I can also confirm that 3.0.1 fixed the issue. Thanks

    Thank you for the kind words – do consider a review in case you haven’t already.

    Separately, can you or the others facing this issue tell me your PHP environment. I know this is a bug but I haven’t had it thrown up or crash any of my dev or production sites.

    Thank you – the thread was the correct thing to do – I’m keeping my eye on the forums today in particular given the big release!

    Here you go

    PHP Version 7.0.32-1~dotdeb+8.1

    System Linux pup214 3.14.33-grsec #7 SMP Thu Aug 20 13:08:12 EDT 2015 x86_64

    Hi again,
    Thank you for this plugin and this quick patch. It resolves fatal error but now it displays only one similar item. I already open a new ticket for this.
