[Plugin: Sociable] Save changes gives server error
Still having the same issue. WTF am I supposed to do with this s
Method Not Implemented
POST to /wp-admin/options-general.php not supported.
I ran into this same issue and spent some time debugging it to find the error. I wrote a post on it to help other people get through it.
Thank you, but unfortunately that’s only a work around, and it’s getting to the point where I’ll have to uninstall sociable because of this stupid bug.
Have you tried just removing Ping.fm from the list of social media sites that Sociable supports? You can do this by editing wp-content/plugins/sociable/sociable.php and remove lines 345 – 349. Those were the lines for me, at least. If you have any experience with PHP syntax, it will be easy to spot, but just remove the item in the array for Ping.fm.
Sorry that’s just a stupid pattern in mod_security, so it’s actually their bug, not sociable’s.
That’s a pretty odd comment. You can do something about it, and get it working for people, but you won’t and instead point the blame at someone else.
Want me to fix it up for you so people can use your stuff on all platforms, since you seem unwilling to do so?
I’m not willing to remove the option to reorderi sites, and have no time to adjust the way it works, so if you have a patch that makes it work without removing functionality, yes of course you’re welcome 🙂
BTW: it’s not an odd comment, with about 200,000 installs and two people complaining, me thinks the problem isn’t too severe.
If it’s only two people complaining, then those two people search for that exact error message and find my fix surprisingly often.
I’ll have a diff ready for you before the end of the day tomorrow.
Well then your fix is more than welcome. I’m sorry if i come across as otherwise, but I get annoyed when people (not you, obviously) complain but don’t seem to have any intention of helping out with a fix, either by looking at the code or by asking a developer in a friendly way to have a look at it.
If someone WTFs me, I’m usually not really too inclined to help anymore, with about 30 plugins and 400,000 users to support, there’s better things I can do with my time 🙂
BTW: could you test whether it’d be fixed just by renaming ping.fm to pingfm?
I’ll give that a shot. I think the regex is just scanning for the word ‘ping’ and assuming it’s an intrusion. My plan is to adjust the array to use numeric keys instead of string keys, and have the site order use those IDs instead of the name of the engine. I can’t imagine mod_security freaking out over just numbers and pipes.
