[Resolved] [Plugin: oik-nivo-slider] Plugin Dependencies issue

  • Plugin dependencies do not seem to be set up properly. Even after enabling ‘oik base plugin’ and ‘oik quicktags’, Plugin Dependencies still won’t let me enable ‘oik slider’ because of a dependency on ‘oik’ which is still unmet.

    Am I missing something, or is ‘oik base plugin’ simply not registering itself as ‘oik’ with Plugin Dependencies?

    Hi, I’m sorry about that. I don’t (didn’t) actually use the Plugin Dependencies plugin; I just thought it was a good idea so I coded the Depends: lines… wrongly.

    The workaround to your problem is to either comment out the Depends: line in oik-nivo-slider.php or change ‘oik’ to ‘oik base plugin’.

    I’ll leave Plugin Dependencies active until I’ve sorted them out in my development machine.

    In the next versions of oik and oik-nivo-slider I’ve developed a slightly different solution that allows the plugins to be activated but not necessarily work. oik-nivo-slider will report a warning message. The idea being that a future version of the oik base plugin will be able to offer to perform the upgrades for you.

    BTW: In the next version oik quicktags won’t be a separate plugin.
    You will be able to choose whether or not to have it active from the oik options > Buttons menu

    Please let me know how you get on.

    I am also seeing similar issues.

    I took a screenshot here: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s210/sh/56122fbf-599c-4bb1-9660-6e9310b927a8/d802074efa0c6a551ac43d1708c317a8

    I seems as though the oik-nivo-slider plugin isn’t working because it thinks the oik base plugin is not installed or something?

    this is on a networked wordpress site.

    any ideas?

    Hi, I had a problem on Multisite where oik-nivo-slider was not able to detect oik. I thought I’d fixed that in oik version 1.13 but it seems there’s still a problem with detecting the version.

    The simplest fix, if you can do it, is to edit the oik-nivo-slider.php file and comment out the penultimate line of code so that it looks like this:
    //oik_nivo_lazy_activation( __FILE__, $depends, "oik_nivo_inactive" );
    When you visit the Site’s admin page you should see the Nivo settings page under oik options.

    You should find that you can use the [nivo] slider even though it’s producing the warning messages on the network admin’s plugin list.

    I believe this problem is now resolved.
