Lazy Load for Videos
[resolved] Plugin won't activate (5 posts)

    I was interested to try this plugin but it won't activate.
    I have tried redownloading and reinstalling the plugin but it just spins on trying to activate.

    What changes does the plugin make to posts on activation/deactivation?
    Is there a way I can download version 1.5.0 to try it out on my site. I wonder if it is timing out because I have over 2,000 posts.

    Thanks

    Hi Jason,

    the plugin updates all posts that have a field that contains '_oembed' or 'oembed_' in database. I've tested it on two sites with several hundreds of posts and it worked fineā€¦

    You can download version 1.5 via this link: http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/lazy-load-for-videos/tags/1.5.zip

    Please keep me up-to-date!

    Regards,
    Kevin

    Version 1.5 installed and activated just fine.

    I was able to update to version 1.5.2 and the process went normal with the plugin reactivating successfully. I made some changes to some settings and clicked the link once to update all posts and received "500 Internal Server Error.
    Request Timeout

    This request takes too long to process, it is timed out by the server. If it should not be timed out, please contact administrator of this web site to increase 'Connection Timeout'."

    On version 1.5.2, I receive the same error upon trying to deactivate the plugin.

    Ok, great thanks! I have to fix that. The next update will not automatically update all older posts anymore.

    Version 1.5.2.1 is available now.
    When you activate it, the plugin will not automatically update all posts anymore. So you have to do this manually. However, if you have a slow site or many posts/database entries, the manual update might still cause a "500 Internal Server Error".
