    This plug in rocks and I love it! I have it on my blog and it works perfectly, I loved it so much i tried to put it on my husbands website ... and got this when I tried to activate it:

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /hermes/bosweb/web154/b1544/sl.trinacri/public_html/wed/wp-content/plugins/catablog/lib/CataBlog.class.php on line 21

    sooo.... what do I do? how do I fix it?

    Wow, so glad to hear you are loving the plugin. My guess is that your husband's web site is hosted with a different computer than yours. Most likely, he is running a version of PHP that is less than 5.0. Upgrade your version of PHP or contact your hosting company for more information.

    I am very pleased to hear of yet another supporter of CataBlog and if you haven't already could you please....

    rate and confirm CataBlog works with your version of PHP at

    like the Facebook page at

    nope! good guess though ;)

    we are both hosted at startlogic- we both have the same deal, the host is running php5

    I will go rate... I was actually looking for a link so I could.... you should add it!

    and I'll go to the facebook-

    as for the donation when i will, when we are not so broke.... if that ever happens

    (I hope soon)

    Don't worry about eating that crow, it's okay, i would prefer if my plugin gave you a nice message like, "hey, you aren't using PHP5, you should upgrade today." And I keep trying to get it right but I keep hearing messages like this, so I keep trying....haha

    BTW, WordPress 3.2 will require PHP5, and I for one am very happy about that. Not only will it let WordPress become sooo much faster and more efficient, but it will mean I no longer will have to check if your server has it.

    Totally understand about the donation issue, I just ask if you hit it big with my plugin's help you give just a smidgen of your bounty to me. Cheers

    I have no memory of doing that- but that is not unusual for me! :)
