[resolved] Plugin not working after upgrade (4 posts)

    Your plugin was working great until I upgraded both the WordPress installation to 3.4.1 and then did the plugin upgrade as well. Is there something with WordPress 3.4.1 that might have stopped it from working? I am using the plugin on 3 different sites and it happened on all 3 so I don't think it's an issue with my themes -- I read the other resolved thread at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-floating-social-media-links-not-displaying-on-site and I have the footer code so I don't think that is the issue.

    Any ideas? One of the sites is http://www.francishowelljrwrestling.com if you need to check it out.

    It looks like the frame is in fact there, but there's nothing in it. You're probably upgrading from one of the original versions of this plugin and I decided to make a switch from having checkboxes to "hide link" to checkboxes that "show link" which I feel is more intuitive, when I made the first major update.

    Should be any easy solution, just go to the settings page (settings -> floating social media links) and check the revised checkboxes (all of your default and custom link options should be there still, although you'll probably need to click add a custom link to see the custom options). There weren't many users when I made this switch and I've removed the warning messages from the more recent updates, so I'm not surprised you're the first one to run into it. Does that fix it?

    That was it, thanks. Didn't think to look theresine my links were already configured, I looked in all the other settings!

    Great, I'll make sure I leave these types of update notices in place longer in the future!
