[Resolved] [Plugin: Snow Report] Doesn't work on my site

    What do you mean by “any code for that matter” – does it completely crash your site on all pages, or just pages with the shortcode?

    The plugin may require PHP5, though I hadn’t thought that it did.

    I am working on version 1.1 that may fix it from another angle, but your feedback would be helpful.

    I have php5 installed. It doesn’t crash it just does nothing! I’m using v 3.0.1 wordpress with Hyper cache. Do you know of any other plugins that may affect performance? I would love to help as much as possible, I think that this will be a great addition to fitness/sports/skiing blogs.

    as for the shortcodes, I set up a page using

    [snow_report]
    and another using
    [snow_report location=”Quebec” mountain=”” caption=”Snow Reports for Ski Mountains in Quebec” align=”left”]

    Neither gave me stats or feedback.

    The other thing I found funny is on the settings page on the right hand side:

    Shortcode example
    The following code…
    [snow_report location=”Quebec” mountain=”” caption=”Snow Reports for Ski Mountains in Quebec” align=”left”]

    …will output this table:

    There is no output here.

    any news?

    Can you check whether a PHP error is being generated by the plugin? You would check your FTP for an error log (or by calling your hosting provider and asking for the error log). This will help identify what’s not working.

    I’ll get back to you.

    I just submitted an update to the plugin (version 1.1) that may fix this issue. It should become available in about 15 minutes. Please upgrade and let me know.

    lol! I just saw it and I’m currently installing. BRB

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in /home/stridesn/public_html/wp-content/plugins/snow-report/snow-report.php on line 331

    Okay, re-installed and error is gone, still no reports. I get a blank page.

    Have you tried switching themes to the default WordPress theme?

    Although that wouldn’t explain the plugin not working on the settings page…

    The error log would be very helpful.

    I just created a fresh install in a subdomain and I get the same results. forums.stridesnshapes.com – login using tester and tester. Check it out.

    Ok, the plugin is outputting that it had errors loading the RSS. There’s no reason that should be happening except that if your host doesn’t support the simplexml_load_file function.

    That would seem to be the issue.

    Ok, thanks. How do I fix this? Or does my hosting admin have to do this? I do have feeds on my main site from worbooker and tweeter working. I’m new to the php world and I’m learning as I go.

    Yeah, I believe it’s a hosting issue. The other plugins probably use the default WordPress function, which doesn’t support the type of file being accessed by the plugin.
