    I am not a coder… I am more the visual spatial learner type. Hand me an assignment for a 300 page essay any day! I am about to pull my hair out (well, the jury is still out on whether or not that really is a blad spot on the back of my head) over this plugins, themes, crappola that is sucking my life away!

    On my website I now have THREE errors popping up on the top of my site. I wish I had money so I could offer someone some greens to make my blog beautiful (like its owner) and I could get on with having a life again ::grin::

    I am actually trying to get four blogs up and going, looking good, with easy userface (so my grammy can leave her scathing remarks as she wishes to bless me with them) and there are several problems I was wondering if anyone can point me in a direction for a solution:

  • My blogs all are seperate from each other, not easy to switch inbetween them or to share themes, plugins, etc. Any ideas here?
  • I see things like WYSWYG, and I want to sick my five children on them. Is it just me or is this a very dirty vicious lie, to get me to install the plugins only to not see how it made a {beep} bit of difference?
  • Why cannot I not get my photo plugin for Flickr to freaking work already? I even went and signed up on that chopshop and I get nothing and one time… (no, not at bandcamp PAY ATTENTION!) someone else’s photos showed up on MY blog. This is a huge issue of mine, as I don’t like anyone else’s stuff (I flunked Kindergarten what can I say?)
  • I am thinking that I might just give up, and just go back to where life was simpler if not boring and repetitive. Okay done having a pity party. Is there anyone who I can go to and ask if they will take a look at my site (not an opthamologist please) and let me know which plugins to get and install (CETERA!!), for the functionality I want.
  • That’s all for now folks!

    But I am sure, given only a little while I can come up with more if you’d like.

  • Well, for the errors at top of page, saying the useronline tables don’t exist.

    WordPress database error: [Table ‘blog.wp_useronline’ doesn’t exist]

    Did you run the useronline-install.php file inside the control panel? Or directly by the domain name, like displayed below?

    Right from the instructions:
    // Open wp-admin folder

    // Activate useronline plugin
    // Run wp-admin/useronline-install.php <–which for you would be:
    But make sure you upload that file into the wp-admin folder first then run it.

    I hope this helps. =) Or maybe if GamerZ sees this post, he can help ya better, being that it’s his plugin. =)


    *hits head on desk*

    Okay, I guess in my euphoric spree on finding plugins and uploading them, I somehow maybe forgot to read the instructions… *cheeky grin*

    I found the file, ummm… in content and not admin which probably explains everything right there. LOL Like my title says I do have a good excuse… but I need time to think it up… Thank you for your help! *smoochies*


    [blushes]..hahaha.. =) You’re welcome, if you have any other issues with it, drop another reply. =)


    Just checked your site again, and it appears those errors went away. =) Or either you got rid of that plugin all together lol! Naa..but anyways…don’t forget to add another “block” in your sidebar then, to show how many user’s are online. =)

    Here’s the exact code from mine, because in his instructions he had an extra li showing up, for nothing. I told him about it already hehe.

    <?php if (function_exists('useronline')): ?>
    <h2>Users Online</h2>
    <li><a href="<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>/wp-useronline.php"><?php get_useronline(); ?></a></li>

    <?php endif; ?>

    Hope this helps. =)


    He had that other <li> after the closing </ul> which I had told him via MSN messenger.. So just use that code I have above there k.. =)

    Damn do I gotta go to bed lmaO! 7:20am…jeesh! Been up all night.. working on the Andreas08 again hahaha.

    Also I noticed something that is possibly wrong, and you should be able to correct with minimal fuss ..

    in your sidebar, I think you are missing some of the <?php ?> tags in the WOTD block, since its spitting out the actual php function call instead of content ..

    PS. spencer, I thought you were off to bed around an hour ago when you first mentioned that .. guess not .. 🙂 .. life is fun when you are coding, eh ..

    You guys ROWK!!!

    I had fixed it like Spence suggested, and it made the uglies stop bumping. So I am good on that area… but as you have pointed out I need to add another box. I have been going one by one through my damn plugins… *sigh* it is now 6:30am and my kids get up in like 2 hours… plug-ins are sucking my life away…

    *sniff, sniff* All I ever wanted was a doll. *clasps hands to bosom* *starts singing It’s the Hard Knock Life* *completely off-tune* *trips over cat* *falls on the kids’ lego tower/castle* *calls 911 and passes out*

    Okay, I will take that code and stick it in… um no promises though… LOL


    “PS. spencer, I thought you were off to bed around an hour ago when you first mentioned that .. guess not .. 🙂 .. life is fun when you are coding, eh ..”

    @skulled, Hahaha….yeah! I just got so wrapped up in working on my Andreas08 theme, I couldn’t barely turn away and head to bed lmaO! But, I’m well rested now, it’s 11pm and I’m back in the game. =) Time to get back at the Andreas08 lol.

    @emmy,’re just as crazy as I am lol! =) Which is a good thing. =) And yeah, I know how all that plugin horse shit can go.. [sigh]. And to think, even once my Andreas08 theme is done, I STILL have to use it on the main blog and impliment all my damn plugins…and even then who knows if I got more crap to work out.. It’s just never ending I guess. But, that’s also what makes it fun, trying to figure everything out, and yet learn as you go. =)


    Emmy, I just checked your site again, you might want to remove the “/blog/” out of the useronline block and the stats box. It’s taking ppl to an unstyled page, making it look screwy. =(

    It should be just /wp-useronline.php for that sidebar.php file code, and /wp-stats.php. Being that your site is right on the main domain name.

    Also, in your css file. Find this code:

    #sidebar ul li {
    margin: 0.1em 0 0 0;
    padding: 0;

    And make it like this:

    #sidebar ul li {
    list-style: none;
    margin: 0.1em 0 0 0;
    padding: 0;

    Or maybe even try this: list-style-type: none;

    Wait, maybe it’s this one, that needs that change:

    ol li, #sidebar ul ol li {
    list-style: decimal outside;


    ol li, #sidebar ul ol li {
    list-style-type: none;

    That should take away them ugly black dots.. =)


    I changed the one thing, but I can’t see where the other one is?

    #sidebar ul li {
    list-style: none;
    margin: 0.1em 0 0 0;
    padding: 0;
    #sidebar li a {
    text-decoration: none;
    #sidebar li a:link {
    color: #909D73;
    #sidebar li a:visited {
    color: #999999;
    #sidebar li a:hover, #sidebar li a:active {
    color: #990000;

    PS It doesn’t have blog in the URl from the sidebar… 🙁
