[Plugin: Open Links Directory] ODLinks page showing twice after upgrade to WP 3.1

  • I had the Open Directory Links plugin installed on 2 sites running WP 3.0.5 and there were no problems. I upgraded the WordPress to 3.1, and now the shortcode seems to be generating two directories on the same page as if there were 2 shortcodes, but there is only one shortcode on the page. Can anyone assist with this problem? Any help would be much appreciated!

  • Is this fixed? Curious.

    No, I emailed the developer and he said he was not able to duplicate the problem. Not sure where to go from here, but I think I need to look for a new plugin.

    I can duplicate it!
    I just did.

    I tried submitting a bug report to http://www.forgani.com/root/opendirectorylinks/ but that CAPTCHA is not working and throwing me an error every time.

    I installed this plugin successfully but it’s appearing DOUBLE on the page.
    Can you see?

    I haven’t modified the code at all yet.
    Is there a fix for this?
    odlinks Version: 1.1.2-d
    Wordpress 3.1
    I would appreciate any help anyone could give. Or How to contact Mohammad Forgani the script owner.

    I was able to contact Mohammad through his website, in the footer he has the email address info@forgani.com listed. He said he upgraded the WordPress to 3.1 and was not able to duplicate the error.

    I was thinking it was something really simple causing the problem like an extra ; somewhere but I don’t know enough about programming to fix. Please update this thread if you do find the problem and I will do the same!

    Here are the pages where this problem is occurring, one is with buddypress and one is without:

    Hello, I’m sorry I was not here for a long time.
    I upgrade to WordPress 3.1 over last weekend.
    It works well from my site.
    I have tried to reproduce your problem, so far with no success.
    Now I will try to install it on my local machine (standalone server) then it maybe able to reproduce this behavior.

    Thank you cina! This fix worked! It is now showing only once thank you so much!!!

    Awesome! Cina must Mohammed?
    Either way – huge thanks for this fix.

    I so love this plugin now! I featured it on my WordPress Plugin Review site here: http://www.pluginxpress.com/2011/comprehensive/open-links-directory

    I am getting 404 error after clicking on a category.
    How to correct it?
