  • Resolved broken85


    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:

    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.
