    Hey Guys –

    When the plugin is first activated, it sends a request to my server to retrieve the version numbers for the latest version of timthumb.php, and the latest one with no known security vulnerability. I’m guessing the errors you saw were related to not being able to make the connection. If it can’t make the connection, the plugin defaults to the latest version when the plugin was released (2.8.2), so you should be fine for now.

    I’ll look into suppressing those errors on activation for the next version.

    Thanks!

    Sounds great. Thanks for the info!
