Admin screen broken, can't see live blog entries (4 posts)

    The plugin functionally works in that I can create new live blog entries and they show up in the proper posts, however when I try to manage my live blog entries, the admin screen for that won't show the list of entries. I know they are there because it says at the top "6 published" but they aren't showing up. I've posted a screenshot of the admin screen. Any ideas would be helpful.

    Could you try disabling the plugin which adds the "Today/Total Views" column? I suspect it may be a conflict with that.

    I just wanted to say that we also have this problem with a blog that we are running. We are using it in 'Multi-site' mode and have a small number of blogs hosted through the same system.

    Live Blog Entries are listed correctly on the 'home blog' for the site but posted entries do not appear, as with joshuatuscan above. The header and footer of the table are pressed together (normally, there would at least be a 'no-entries' row). The links above the table are showing that posts exist.

    What's also interesting to note, is that while in this state where no entries are appearing, the javascript folding admin menus on the left side of the dashboard no longer function as expected. The links work, but the javascript for the folding menus seems not too. I wonder if there is some conflict which is preventing JavaScript from running correctly on this page. However, no errors appear in the Chrome console.

    Any advice would be greatly received.

    I've finally figured this bad boy out. The Live Blogging code uses the filter_var method which is only available in PHP 5.2.0 onwards.

    To fix this problem, you simply need to either upgrade PHP (not an option for me) or modify the file; wp-content/plugins/live-blogging/live-blogging.php with the following changes (around line 554).

    //$title = filter_var($post->post_content, FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING);
    $title = $post->post_content;

    I've simply bypassed the filter_var call and used the raw post_content, and that's fine in our instance. Hope this helps you too @joshuatuscan!
