  • Resolved omairarshad


    When I try to activate the plug in an error message appears which says
    “Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.
    Parse error: parse error, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION' orT_FUNCTION’ or T_VAR' or‘}” in C:\Home\s\u\sunnahbook\www\wp-content\plugins\simple-popup\simple-popup.php on line 31″

    Do you know how I can fix this? And if not is there any plugin similiar to yours in which I can have a popup with a facebook like box?
    Any help will be appreciated

    Sorry but you need to upgrade your PHP installation you are using an older version of PHP, upgrade to PHP 5.3 then simple popup will work fine.

    If for some reason you can’t upgrade replace “public $name” with “var $name” on line 31.

    Muneeb. Please help. Can you go to my blog

    How can I delete the plug in. Thought I did and it doesn’t want to. Please, help. I am so appreciative!

    After visiting your blog it seems to me that plugin is already deleted.


    Muneeb. I tried to activate the plugin but got an error message similar to omairarshad:

    Warning: require_once(/home/blblog/public_html/wp-admin/includes/internal-linking.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/blblog/public_html/wp-content/plugins/simple-popup/sp-options.php on line 16

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/blblog/public_html/wp-admin/includes/internal-linking.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/blblog/public_html/wp-content/plugins/simple-popup/sp-options.php on line 16

    Whenever I try to access my Admin Page, it puts up that message and doesn’t let me get back in. What can I do?

    Sorry, me again. The website is

    Omair was getting error because he was using an older version of PHP. Really sorry to know that you are getting an error it’s a path problem, if you can edit code go to wp-content/plugins/simple-popup/
    there open file name sp-options.php and remove the line number 16.

    If you want to deactivate the plugin you have to manually delete the plugin go to wp-content directory there delete the folder named as simple-popup.php after doing this you not get any errors.

    The internal linking feature is not available in older versions of WordPress i.e you are getting an error, please upgrade to the latest version You’ll not receive these errors.Thanks

    I contacted my site host and we fixed it together. Thanks for your help. I’ll try updating to current version of WordPress and try again.

    Hi Muneeb (and abegeller if you are still subscribed to this feed), I installed SimplePopup plugin this morning. When I attempt to access my admin panel, I receive the following errors:

    Warning: require_once(/home/content/36/5409136/html/blog/wp-admin/includes/internal-linking.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/36/5409136/html/blog/wp-content/plugins/simple-popup/sp-options.php on line 16

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/content/36/5409136/html/blog/wp-admin/includes/internal-linking.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php’) in /home/content/36/5409136/html/blog/wp-content/plugins/simple-popup/sp-options.php on line 16

    When I navigate around my blog, an “Edit Me” popup comes up. When I “x” out of that and attempt to access my dashboard through an “edit” option on a blog entry, I receive the same error messages.

    Not sure how I can fix or delete this plugin without access to admin panel.

    I tried a computer system restore, but to no avail.

    I tried accessing through WP app on ipad, but to no avail.

    Abegeller…would love to hear how you resolved this issue.

    Hoping you have some advice. Thanks so much in advance!

    I always recommend WordPress users upgrade there WordPress Version you are using an older version Please upgrade it after getting access to WordPress Dashboard.

    How to Get Access To WordPress Dashboard ?

    Navigate to the directory where WordPress in installed most of the times it’s wordpress,blog there go to the directory wp-content/plugins, then delete the folder named as simple-popup.
