    I thought I would inform you that your plugin, along with another plugin conflict with each other. I have informed that plugin owner as well.

    This happened upon update of

    I got a 500 error message when both plugins were running at the same time. I isolated the two plugins being in conflict.

    While I need both running, I need the social one more so I had to deactivate yours.

    Here is the error message I received when I tried to reactivate it.

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.
    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare add_settings_link() in mydirectorpath/plugins/wordpress-firewall-2/wordpress-firewall-2.php on line 450

    And the code for that function.

    // Add Settings link to plugins - code from GD Star Ratings
    function add_settings_link($links, $file) {
         static $this_plugin;
         if(!$this_plugin) {
               $this_plugin = plugin_basename(__FILE__);
         if($file == $this_plugin) {
               $settings_link = '<a href="options-general.php?page=' . $this_plugin . '">' . __("Settings", "wordpress-firewall-2") . '</a>';
               array_unshift($links, $settings_link);
         return $links;

    I let the owner of the other plugin know the situation as well.
