  • Found the readme file by checking the file manager at my host. It was here: webroot / wp-content / plugins / autonav / readme.txt

    If that helps anyone. Probably would be helpful if the settings page link linked to it, though. Thanks

    Yes, that is where the “Readme file for this version” in the settings screen should link. What link do you get instead?

    Hi William, thanks for getting back to me – my link is directing here:

    Curious. Is that on Linux or Windows hosting?

    The code tests correct on Linux. Specifically in autonav-wl-options.php there are the two lines:

    $realpath = realpath(__DIR__."/readme.txt");
      $path = 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . substr($realpath, strlen($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']));

    which should take the local (from the server’s perspective) path of the readme.txt file in wp-content/plugins/autonav and then remove the prefix part of that local path which coincide with the webserver’s document root. That might break on Windows if your document root were on drive C: but the plugin was on drive D: … or something else equally bizarre.

    Perhaps you could find those two lines, and in the WordPress editor, temporarily insert between them the line:

    print "ROOT: " . $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . " -- README: " . $realpath . "<br>\n";

    save the file, and report back please with what that prints.
