Plugin: SP Courseware - Not working with WPMU 2.8 Widget screen (5 posts)

    We've deployed Courseware to a bunch of very happy professors using onMason.com, a GMU-run WordPress MU platform. Unfortunately, when we upgraded to 2.8 due to security concerns, we found that when Courseware was active on a WPMU blog users are unable to drag and drop their widgets in the widget screen.

    Any idea what's causing the problem?


  2. javascript conflict is my guess. :)

    And I;d go up to wpmu, which is the latest, and make sure you have the latest of the plugin.

    Been having this problem too and decided to try to run some debug on the widgets... heres the only error that I saw - but it will take some time to detangle. When sp_sourseware is enabled, while the widget *should* be scrolling, each move of the mouse throws the following error
    TypeError: Result of expression 'this.helper.scrollParent' [undefined] is not a function.
    Of course, I am having the same errors as others too - the plugin admin pages are working, the schedule and biblio pages are being created, the database is populated - but when it comes time to run schedule_page() -- crickets... nothing.

    SO I wonder if the problem could be the js vm crashing silently? When it tries to parse the sp_sourseware under wpmu it fails and subsequently all of the other scripts do to? This is a longshot guess but since I couldn't find anyone posting the errors I thought I would give it a shot. I hope this thread is still being followed.

    I just updated the plugin and created a new release (1.1.2) that should fix this JavaScript issue with the Widgets panel. May take a bit for the update to show up in the plugins directory.

    Turns out I was added our javascript file to the entire admin, instead of to the plugin's pages only. This was causing the Widgets panel to break.

    I would say too that this plugin has not been tested on WPMU, only WP. I suspect there are certain parts of this plugin incompatible with WPMU; Namely, the import from BibTeX feature, which writes to a single file on the server. This likely won't work if multiple people are importing, essentially writing to the same file, at the same time.
