Support » Plugins » Issues with Article Directory

  • I am trying to get the plugin “Article Directory” working on my WordPress Blog. The link to the exact one I am using is here. I followed the installation instructions according to that page but it seems it cuts off the page just below the article text label and I don’t see the text area to enter the contents of my article.

    I found an example of what the page should look like, minus the different css here. This is linked to from the first page I linked.

    If anyone has any ideas why this may be happening I’d greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks, Dan

  • I am having the same issue. When I try to view the author panel, only half the page shows up, when I view source, it seems like there is a lot more there, but only half the author page shows up. The last time that I installed this, it worked fine…

    anyone have any ideas?


    According to this thread: cannot-post the plugin is no longer supported:

    See Dimox’s article here:

    And the statement at the bottom of the page:

    Further development and support for Article Directory Plugin and Theme is stopped.

    Which is a shame, it was a popular plugin.

    Guys, there is a fix for the problem you are having. If you still would like to use the plugin, I have written an eBook on setting up the directory in the most secure way. It also deals with all the current issues and the primary one is the wp_tiny_mce problem you are referring to above. So, if you would like, just leave a reply on this post.

    I will send you a review copy. All I ask is that you send me a review to let me and others know this eBook helped you out.


    I’m having the same dang gone wp_tiny_mce issue:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_tiny_mce() in //wp-content/plugins/article-directory/author-panel.php on line 269

    What’s up with this?!?!????! If you could lend a helping hand that would be AMAZING!!

    Same issue here. Would love to get this plugin working on another site, but at a loss. Got the exact same error as sgodar.

    Actually figured out the wp_tiny_mce issue:

    Article Directory Plugin
    Show Text Editor: NO

    Open /plugins/aricle-directory/author-panel.php in a text editor and replace line 269:

    wp_tiny_mce( false, array( 'height' => '370' ) );


    wp_editor( $content, array("tinymce" => $a));



    Ahhh very kewl. Thanks for sharing.



    hey sgodar,

    I tried what you suggested. Its showing the text editor but also some errors:

    Warning: Illegal offset type in /home/shribo8z/public_html/ on line 157

    Warning: Illegal offset type in /home/shribo8z/public_html/ on line 407

    Please help


    I would love to see the ebook on this plugin.
    I’ve been playing with the plugin and haven’t found the right solution yet.

    I’m using WP 3.4.1

    However, I don’t think I will post my email address here.. Do you have somewhere I can download the ebook from??



    would love to have a copy of the ebook

    Marsh4 I would also like to have a copy of the ebook.

    @sgodar, I got my site working with your tip. Thanks 🙂

    Article Directory Plugin
    Show Text Editor: NO <— This is important, otherwise, you’ll get 2 editors showing up

    Open /plugins/aricle-directory/author-panel.php in a text editor and replace line 269:

    wp_tiny_mce( false, array( 'height' => '370' ) );


    wp_editor( $content, array("tinymce" => $a));

    You can check it at using test as username and test as password. I’d like to get some feedbacks if you encounter some errors 🙂


    What version of WP are you using?

    I tried the fix with WP 3.4.1 and got the same errors @ramshengale did.

    I see that the guy with the ebook isn’t responding.. Or at least he hasn’t responded to me.

    Guess he doesn’t want any reviews of his work..

    @grace n Ease, I just upgraded to WordPress 3.3.2. That’s when the half-page display occured. But now, it’s OK.

    If there’s an error with WP 3.4.1 then I might not upgrade yet then

    Hi @fueur2011,

    I must apologize.. the site I was testing on is a multisite install..
    I went to the single site install and tested and using the code above, it works fine..

    So, upgrading to WP 3.4.1 is okay with the modification prescribed above.. as long as it is on a single site install and not multisite..

    I am actually quite happy about that..
