    Are you on localhost or a hosting provider? I may need a bit more information to successfully troubleshoot the issue.

    Sorry about my lack of information. That’s very unlike me.

    I was testing it out on localhost. I can’t remember if I tried it on a remote server, but I doubt I did when I saw it wasn’t working on localhost (I’m running XAMPP 1.8.0 on Windows 8 Pro).

    I use XAMPP as my development environment and haven’t seen the exact issue. I believe it may be a lack of memory or something with your localhost. Marking this as resolved. Please let me know if you have any further issues.

    As I said, I’m running XAMPP 1.8.0 on a clean installation of Windows 8 Pro, on a machine with an Intel Core i7-3770 CPU at 3.40 Mhz, 16 GB RAM, and XAMPP is installed on a 120GB SSD. In php.ini memory_limit = 128M. The issue certainly isn’t to do with a lack of memory or hard drive space.

    I’ve just discovered where the issue may lie. I have WordPress installed in a sub-directory on localhost, e.g. http://localhost/wordpress.

    If I change line 89 of icons-scripts.js from

    var url = ‘/wp-content/plugins/wp-admin-icons/includes/showfiles.php’;


    var url = ‘http://localhost/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wp-admin-icons/includes/showfiles.php’;

    then I no longer get the error message. I don’t see the icons either, but placeholders, but it’s a start.

    Any ideas?

    Ah, I should get the path using a better method rather than just assuming that’s the directory. Let me do some testing on my end and let me see if I can come up with any solutions. When you say placeholders, what do you mean? Broken images?

    I’ve got the fix. All you have to do is place 3 “..” (no quotes) and everything will be fixed !

    Go to showfiles.php and on line 25 and change this

    $image = str_replace('../', '/wp-content/plugins/wp-admin-icons/', $image);

    to this

    $image = str_replace('../', '../wp-content/plugins/wp-admin-icons/', $image);


    Go to icons-scripts.js and make sure line 75 looks like this

    jQuery(".myIconList").load('../wp-content/plugins/wp-admin-icons/includes/showfiles-upload.php', function(response,

    and line 177 should be this

    var url = '../wp-content/plugins/wp-admin-icons/includes/showfiles.php';'

    PS: If you want your uploads to show you have to change line 29 of showfiles-upload.php

    $icon_str = "<li><img src='".$sitename."../wp-content/plugins/wp-admin-icons/icons/uploads/".$iconsArray."'

    Thats it ! (so far so good)

    I’ve got the same problem and ultimatea8 fixed the issue.

    I think the author should change this absolute paths to something using the current site URL, as for this specific case I’m my wordpress website is within a subfolder, like
