Doesn't work with PHP version 5.2.17?
Doesn't work with PHP version 5.2.17?
thanks for the message.
The php version is a carry over from the Sightings plugin but I have either removed or changed about 80% of the code so it may work in earlier versions of php. My web host runs php 5.3 so I am unable to test the plugin with earlier version of php.
I am going to be releasing an update in the next couple of days but before I do I will check through the code and see if I can find any code which is dependant on php 5.3 and try and re-write it.
Have you tried running the plugin in? If you do and get an error message please post it here to give me an indication of any possible code changes I need to make.
So after further tinkering, maybe its not the php version.
When i try to use the shortcode in a post, page, or sidebar, I only see the [twitcher-map]
I am using other plugin with other shortcodes on the site
I may try to call it with php, I'll keep you updated, but if you have any ideas, I am open to try them.
Thanks for your response and I look forward to trying your plugin
there is a fix for it going out later today hopefully or tomorrow with the next update.
There was acall to the plugin directory path using a php 5.3 method. I've swapped that path call for the standard wordpress mthod so php version should not matter.
I'm just tweaking some settings at the moment and then I'll be releasing version 1.3
If you want to try the fix then open the filters.php file in;
twitcher > theme-files > filters.php
look for about line 14:
// Register shortcodes include __DIR__ . '/shortcode-twitcher-map.php';
change it to:
// Register shortcodes include dirname(__FILE__) . '/shortcode-twitcher-map.php';
that should fix the php version issue. But as I said my web host runs php 5.3 so I've not been able to test it on earlier versions of php.
That isn't working
in fact, it nukes my whole site, heh
but i think its on the right track
that's trange if it's nuked your whole site. I'm using the new path call without a problem.
You sure you did not delete a closing braket or ; by mistke as well?
and even just
and they both white screened the site
I'll mess with it more later and let you know what i find
I think its when the include 'does' work that it nukes the site.
If i use the include code with a bad path, I get the same issue as with the __DIR__ code
Must be something unfriendly in
I'll take a closer look at that file.
There may be some php 5.3 specific coding in there somewhere.
Any luck with that 5.3 specific code hunt? I looked but didn't see anything that stood out to me. I just loaded your new version and
since you use
include dirname(__FILE__) . '/shortcode-twitcher-map.php';
now, it white screens my whole site on 5.2.17
if you are interested in testing on 5.2.17, I could set you up a site
let me know
you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am planning on spending a couple of hours tomorrow (sunday) looking into this.
If you vould get me access to 5.2 php then it would help me al ot on testing and running debugs etc.
You can send me details on email@example.com
I'm not sure but I think it could be the way the marker is being called for when people make a contribution.
I've done a few changes to file structure ready for the next update sometime next week but it would be good if you could give me some feedback on if it's working in php 5.2

For those who have been following this thread.
I will not be adapting the code to work with php 5.2 as it will require a major rewrite.
The issue is the use of the Paamayim Nekudotayim (:: double colon) with variables. This additional use was introduced in php5.3 and is not supported in earlier version of php.
