  • Resolved CrazySerb


    Hey guys, I am having troubles with including WordPress code into 3rd party scripts… at least for the version 3.0. Everything worked fine and peachy with this code for v2.9.2:

    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, false);

    But in 3.0.1 something changed and that same code, when added to a 3rd party script now, breaks it in a way that it doesn’t wrap their code into WP one anymore, but it either opens up a /3rd-party-script-folder/wp-admin/install.php or it doesn’t even open up the file requested in /3rd-party-script-folder and returns a 404 error.

    What changed to cause this?

    I mean, this might still work just fine for simple implementations without much authentication/cookies/session variable programming, but this 3rd party script developers team hasn’t been able to figure out what’s wrong and their only answer after a week straight of looking at it is to ask around here…

  • I am having this same issue. Any solutions out there?

    Ditto. I saw a suggestion to load wp-load.php instead, but it’s not working for me so far. A query that pulls all child attachments to a post that works with wp-blog-header.php does not work when the other is loaded.

    BTW, why is this marked resolved? There may be an answer out there somewhere, but it’s not here.

    As a workaround, you can issue a 200 header manually in your script. it’s a dumb way to so it but will get you over the hump.

    The wordpress way is

    status_header( 200 );

    Im just printing out .xml via a php script, but this worked for me. Not sure if it will help with more complicated issues.

    define('WP_USE_THEMES', false);
    // output some xml //
    // now send the headers //
    $xml_string = $doc->saveXML();
    header('Content-Type: text/xml');
    header('Cache-Control: no-store');
    header("Content-length: " . strlen(utf8_decode($xml_string)));
