[Plugin: Our Progress] Fails to save settings on 3.0 (12 posts)

  1. Every time I tried to save settings, it blew up on fopen(ourprogresssettings.txt)

    Also, shortcodes would be AWESOME for this instead of demanding people use PHP in their posts, which I don't want to activate on MU :)


  2. To create shortcodes, add this to ourprogress.php:


    Then you can use [show_ourprogress] and [show_ourprogress_graphic]

    Fixing the ourprogresssettings.txt issue is to edit line 45 from
    $myFile = "ourprogresssettings.txt";
    $myFile = "../ourprogresssettings.txt";

    And then put a file ourprogresssettings.txt in the same folder as your wp-config.php file.

    At this rate, I may end up forking this to use the database instead of a text file.

    Ipstenu, thanks! I'm not able to replicate this on either on my test servers but I've see the error before.

    I'm in the process of removing the settings file altogether and should have it fixed up by the 1.0 release.

    I've included the shortcodes in the 0.6.7 update, thanks.

    Your plugin is great and the only one in its kind. I just updated to 0.7.0 and now I can't update te settings anymore. I tried to follow the instructions above, but I can't find any $myFile refference.

    Please help! Our fundraising is running right now, so I would love to give visitors of our site an insight in what's going on.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry guys, I tried to fix one problem and created another. My bad.

    I've tested the 0.7.1 update and just uploaded a new version for you. If there is a problem, please let me know right away.

    thanks ... that fixed it. What is the default text for the "Currency Format" field?

    nevermind ... figured it all out. Just going to change the background colour, centre it and it'll look great.

    okay ... so the amounts will save, but the style will always convert back to the default colour.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for this fix. I couldn't figure out where to stick that txt file.

    @christopherross- Thanks for the plugin. I'm looking forward to an update. :)
