[resolved] How to fix the database error? (2 posts)

    I really would like to use your plugin but am put aside when I get this error message:
    "The YARPP database has an error which could not be fixed.Please try manual SQL setup."

    I came across this page which just gives some code that needs to be added in wp_posts.

    I need baby steps on how to proceed. I was able to go to my host and find wp_posts but had no idea how to add the code into it.

    The best thing would be if there was a script inside of your plugin that added the necessary info by its self so that the user did not need to go into the database and add the info. Well I do learn a few things from it though.

    Have a great day!

    I am working on getting the plugin working at this site:

    If you need help running the code provided, I suggest you contact your hosting to know how to execute the SQL commands.

    Most likely you were sent to the "manual setup" page because YARPP already tried to do this for you and it failed. Sometimes the permissions given to WP itself doesn't allow for certain operations to be run, but you as the administrator are able to do this.
