  • Resolved belois


    When we update the plugin Simple Share Buttons Adder to the latest version we get an error:
    Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘Exception’ with message ‘Plugin dir is not inside of the wp-content directory’ in D:\appdata\IIS\vhosts\\httpdocs\wp-content\plugins\simple-share-buttons-adder\php\class-plugin-base.php:165 Stack trace: #0 D:\appdata\IIS\vhosts\\httpdocs\wp-content\plugins\simple-share-buttons-adder\php\class-plugin-base.php(71): SimpleShareButtonsAdder\Plugin_Base->locate_plugin() #1 D:\appdata\IIS\vhosts\\httpdocs\wp-content\plugins\simple-share-buttons-adder\php\class-plugin.php(19): SimpleShareButtonsAdder\Plugin_Base->__construct() #2 D:\appdata\IIS\vhosts\\httpdocs\wp-content\plugins\simple-share-buttons-adder\instance.php(19): SimpleShareButtonsAdder\Plugin->__construct() #3 D:\appdata\IIS\vhosts\\httpdocs\wp-content\plugins\simple-share-buttons-adder\simple-share-buttons-adder.php(26): require_once(‘D:\\appdata\\IIS\\…’) #4 D:\appdata\IIS\vhosts\\httpdocs\wp-settin in D:\appdata\IIS\vhosts\\httpdocs\wp-content\plugins\simple-share-buttons-adder\php\class-plugin-base.php on line 165

    With the older versions like 6.3.4 no problem

  • I’m having this same issue – it appears to be caused when running the plugin on Windows.

    I believe the problem is that around line 152 of class-plugin-base.php the plugin normalises filenames to use linux-style forward slashes, but then around line 162 continues to use \DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR which causes the parsing of the path to fail.

    		if ( '/' !== \DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR ) {
    			$file_name = str_replace( \DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR, '/', $file_name ); // Windows compat.

    $plugin_path = $this->relative_path( $plugin_dir, 'wp-content', \DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR );

    A temporary workaround is to simply replace the \DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR with '/' on line 162:

    $plugin_path = $this->relative_path( $plugin_dir, 'wp-content', '/' );

    This is liable to break when the plugin gets updated, however.
