Support » Plugin: Link Library » [Plugin: Link Library] Love this plugin- but it 'White Screens' 3.3-beta3-19254.

  • Just so you know, installed this with 3.3-beta1 and it worked perfectly … updated to 3.3-beta3-19254 and both admin panel & site are “white screened” — going back to beta 3.3-bta1 for now because this is such a great plug-in. Disabled all other plugins (except Askimet). When I enable Link-Library .. poof!! white screen – disable it — WP works ok.

    Thanks for the report. I will only be able to look into this on December 3rd since I am off on a big work trip in a day and will only be back at that time. It is troubling to learn that it is not working correctly in the new version.

    I took 10 minutes to look at the issue. Looks like a bug in beta 3.

    To be sure that it is the same problem, I was getting the following error when I activated Link Library under Beta 3:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function convert_to_screen() in C:\Home\Projects\htdocs\wp-admin\includes\template.php on line 854

    I corrected it by editing the file:


    and adding the first line of the followign block at line 849:

    require_once(ABSPATH . '/wp-admin/includes/screen.php');
    	if ( empty( $screen ) )
    		$screen = get_current_screen();
    	elseif ( is_string( $screen ) )
    		$screen = convert_to_screen( $screen );

    I am not sure where to log defects against beta versions, and am leaving for a 10-day business trip in a day. Can you open a bug report?

    The issue comes up when my plugin adds meta boxes to specific pages. Since I am padding a string to specify the page, WordPress tries to call the convert_to_screen function but is not finding.

    My code change forces to load the file that contains that function.


    The good news is that it works well with 3.3 beta1 so in fact it does work with the new version — just not the latest tweaks ; ) it shouldn’t be too difficult to fix and I’m guessing it’ll be a while before they release 3.3 final.

    Just wanted to say, I use a lot of plugins and this is by far one of the most useful and well designed for managing links lists, and the browser applet is incredibly useful & timesaving …

    I wrote the last post, and sent it before I saw your 2 new posts… yes I’ll open a bug report and point them to this thread.

    I think this looks like this leads in the right direction:

    could you take a quick look? at the form they’re asking some questions that you may answer better than I …

    All right. I will try to find time to log this in the next day or two.

    I have made the necessary changes to make sure that Link Library is compatible with WP 3.3.

    That’s good news : ) Hope you trip went well ! Thanks for your efforts, it’s greatly appreciated …
