    When you say it didn’t work do you mean it didn’t do anything whatsoever?

    Did it show you line numbers when editing a theme or plugin file?

    Did you notice any browser errors?

    It’s didn’t work for me also. It is not displaying the file list. And, casing error while click “save file”. See the below screenshot.

    It’s probably something to do with your file permissions, 90% sure of that. The only other thing is the “wp-content” folder, WPide uses that as it’s root so if you have a setup where you have renamed the wp-content folder it won’t work.

    Your files need to be writable to your web server user and the files probably need to be owned by that same user otherwise WPide will not be able to open or save files.

    My very next job is to add some pre startup checks in WPide so that if there is an issue with permissions then it will let you know.

    2.0.3 of WPide is being uploaded as I type this so that now if there is a permission issue the plugin will give an alert to let you know of the situation.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I just installed the newest version today, but unfortunately, I happen to see the same issue Cyberwani shows in his screenshot. No files in the file list and only the text

    Use the file manager to find a file you with edit, click the file name to edit.

    I’m pretty sure it isn’t a rights-issue. If I go to any plugin and to the Editor screen, I can edit any file I want, and these reside in the wp-content folder also.

    In Opera I see the word “Files” and the number “0”. In Firefox, the right-hand side of the screen is empty. If there’s anything I can check to help you solve this issue, let me know.

    Thanks for your feedback metacarpus.

    I’m going to try and make a few further changes to the plugin so that the initial editor screen shows some further text upon startup. Maybe more of a break down of folder permissions so that if people have similar issues we can rule out permissions for sure.

    The right hand side of the screen should show the file tree. It gets this information with an ajax call back to the server. So maybe there is a problem with that ajax call.

    It’s working for me. I’m still sure your problems are something to do with permissions. Just hold fire until I release another version later today.

    I get the same issue – but I installed while using no-ip.com – would that affect it?

    The path never gave problems with other plugins that also try to write, including WP itself and WP’s plugin manager. The only oddity I have is that it’s a compressed D-drive, but I can hardly think that’s an issue here…

    If I’d know where to look I might help finding the culprit.

    I’ve finally managed to upload version 2.0.4 which will throw a javascript alert if it has trouble reading the files and in the editor window where it says “use the file manager…” it will also show some startup/debug info that will help us to see if permissions are the issue.

    Paste that startup info in here.

    If you can use the inbuilt theme/plugin code editor then you should be able to use WPide.

    Once again, thanks for everyones feedback.

    I don’t see why a compressed D-drive would cause any problems when using this plugin.

    Likewise I don’t think no-ip.com should cause any problems.

    Thanks for your efforts so far, it’s much appreciated and I sure hope we get this working 🙂

    I’ve just downloaded and upgraded the plugin. It indeed shows a message now:

    WPide is having trouble accessing your files

    Where can I find the startup/debug info?

    When your looking at the editor for the first time (after clicking the WPide link in your WP admin) it should say some stuff:

    Use the file manager to find a file you wish edit, click the file name to edit.

    WPIDE STARUP CHECKS
    ___________________

    WordPress version = 3.3.2

    Web server user/group = www:www
    wp-content owner/group = www:www

    wp-content folder exists and contains 11 files

    Using the direct method of the WP filesystem API
    The wp-content folder IS readable and IS writable by this method
    The wp-content/plugins folder IS readable and IS writable by this method
    The wp-content/themes folder IS readable and IS writable by this method
    ___________________

    Since you mention “the first time”, I figured it might have to do with me updating it instead of installing it for the first time.

    Unfortunately, even when I uninstall (and I checked the folder on the server to see whether it was really removed) and then reinstall it, I still don’t get a screen with the “WPIDE STARUP CHECKS” like you describe.

    Only the first line “Use the file manager to find a file you wish edit, click the file name to edit.” and on top a popup with the text “WPide is having trouble accessing your files”. That’s all.

    Anything else I can check or try?

    Hi metacarpus,

    I’ve just uploaded another version 2.0.5 which has some extra debugging information for the filesystem API. I think for some reason the filesystem API is not initialising correctly for you. If on startup WPide has a problem setting up the filesystem API then it will output a dump of the filesystem api before WPide ran and a dump of the filesystem API after WPide tried to run the API with the “direct” method (working directly with the local filesystem).

    Reinstall/upgrade the plugin and let me know what debug info you get.

    I just tested it again in IE, Opera, Firefox and this time it shows three lines:

    Use the file manager to find a file you wish edit, click the file name to edit.

    0

    I.e.: the one line I always see, plus a “0”. Oh, and the popup is still saying the same: “WPide is having trouble accessing your files”.

    Btw, you asked in an earlier post about whether I could change files using the default editor of WordPress. The answer is yes, without trouble.
