    When i try to activate the plugin Fatal Error shows up.

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'elseif' (T_ELSEIF) in C:\xampp\htdocs\Sites\fonsperitiae\wp-content\plugins\wordpress-posts-timeline\inc\timeline_options.php on line 182

    1. Is it possible there is another error as it appears this reported error (line ~176) has been resolved?

    2. Also, is it possible that my remote server is allowing such errors to pass through the PHP engine without fatal fault. I am running the same plugin remotely (PHP 5.4) and on XAMPP 1.8.2 / PHP 5.4.

    3. Is is possible to allow my local PHP to allow such errors?


    Editing local php.ini and turning ON short_open_tag allowed the plugin to load.

    Perhaps this is why short_open_tag should not be used in redistributed code on different server environments.
