  • Just uplosded the final 2.7
    Anyone having problema with getting rss feeds to work in the sidebar widget. I also can’t believe after all the betas and RC1 and RC2 and now the final, and still turbo can’t be enabled in Google Chrome.
    Chome was mentioned in the wp testers emails but no resolution found.

    As far as I can figure out, this is actually a problem with Chrome itself. The error posted on the wp-testers list was this:

    This is what I get from the Chrome’s Java Console when I “Push” the “Enable Gears” button:

    “Uncaught TypeError: Object [object HTMLObjectElement] has no method ‘getPermission’ http://sitename.***/wp-admin/js/wp-gears.js?ver=20080905 (line 21)”

    Line 21 in that file is this:
    perm = google.gears.factory.getPermission( 'WordPress', 'images/logo.gif' );

    The google.gears.factory object DOES have the getPermission method, according to Google’s own documentation:

    So, not a lot WP can do about it if Chrome is broken.

    Hi again, and thanks for the update Otto, I must have missed the error that was posted, it works fine in IE8 so I guess this one is down to Chrome. I’m still trying to find out why rss feeds will not show up in the 2.7 widget, a colleague seems to think its a server issue with the site hosting I’m working on. Well at least the upgrades have worked.
    thanks again.
