[resolved] working under WP 3.x (1 post)

    We've been using this plugin and its predecessor for various customer projects over the years. It's functionality is pretty much unrivalled, despite representing some of the worst coding spaghetti i have ever seen and despite katzenfreund's efforts to re-factor it.

    It always had a few bugs, fairly trivial to fix, however, it stopped working altogether under WP V3.04. Reason: variable/parameter naming conflict with wp 3.x $action variable.

    For those interested, here's how to fix it:

    files affected::

    bdp-rssadmin-general.php - around lines 114, 129, 131, 133, 155, 157,247, 282, 283, 285, 309, 335, 336, 337, 352, 353, - ie. wherever action= occurs in a link url replace it with eg: bdp_action=.

    bdp-rssadmin.php - around line 389 change $argumentSet = array('action', 'rss', 'list', 'pboutput'); to say $argumentSet = array('bdp_action', 'rss', 'list', 'pboutput');. then again, around line 413 change switch($action) to eg: switch($bdp_action)

    pba-admin-output.php - around line 32 change echo '<input type="hidden" name="action" value="status" />'; to eg: echo '<input type="hidden" name="bdp_action" value="status" />';

    pba-admin-status.php - around line 81, change url param from ...&action=editpbaoutput&... to eg: `...&bdp_action=editpbaoutput&...'

    pba-widgets.php - around line 132 - ditto, change url parameter name from action to eg: bdp_action.

    to be on safe side, also rename the function parameter $action to say $bdp_db_action in:

    bdp-rssaggregator-db.php - around line 200 - function jobaction($injobname="", $action="insert"){

    .. and elsewhere it occurs in that same function.

    to get rid of warning messages on some systems, particularly shared hosting environments, in:

    bdp-rss-aggregator.php - around line 260 comment out if(!ini_get('safe_mode')) set_time_limit(0);

    that's about it. good luck.
