    I just installed the plugin and it's awesome. One problem though, is I'm getting an error whenever I make a change on the settings page and save the updated settings. What I'm getting is this:

    I just looked some more into this. What is your server setup (Linux, Windows, Mac, Apache version, PHP version)?

    In the General Settings, what is your WordPress address (URL) and Site address (URL)?

    Does this happen if you disable permalinks?

    This is a deprecated security feature of php that shouldn't be relied on but somewhere your settings are most likely wrong.

    Your problem sounds a lot like this one:
