  • I originally installed this as 4.0 on my site and then turned it on… it has a bugmeplease method of asking for a newsletter subscription so you can get an endless stream of mindless information … marketing jaded opinions aside… the plugin at 4.0 on wp3.3.1 didn’t work for me so I went to the developers blog and it was recommended to downgrade to see if that version worked. I downloaded the earlier version and installed. It worked a treat and I really enjoyed its functionality! Thanks for the download option Mr Developer!

    Until recently it worked a treat until I had to re-install all my plugins after a plugin went awol cracking my site. When I re-installed the 2.x version it asked me to instant upgrade to 4.1 which had the fun bugmeplease email list no choice but to join option. I entered my spammail addy and then got access to my settings for the plugin only to find that when updated it didn’t work at all… highly disappointing. Just now I attempted to re-install the earlier version by direct download and upload only to find that it reports ‘no valid plugins found’ when attempting to install the earlier version. Don’t know if that is because its been coded to invalidate to force everyone up to the bugmeplease version.

    I love this plugin… when it works… I hope that it can be fixed.

  • Ok… my bad…

    I just went and downloaded version 2.0 and unpacked the zip to see if anything was awry there… yep… it was in a directory in a directory in a directory so there was no way that wordpress could unpack from direct upload of the original downloaded zip file and would report it broken.

    I packed the final folder and named it appropriately and now the plugin is working on version 2.1 on wp3.3.1 for me.

    Version 4.0 and 4.1 does not work for me at all on wp3.3.1

    To all having trouble … try the earlier version.

    Go to the plugin here and click on the Earlier Version links under FYI on the right hand side under ratings. Direct link below if wordpress lets me include urls:
