[resolved] SimplePie reports 'cache' folder unwriteable/missing (5 posts)

    Hi all,

    I'm displaying feeds on a page with SimplePie and Exec-PHP and it's throwing an error message that the wp-content/cache folder is unwriteable. Perms are set to 777.

    Even worse, the SimplePie config in admin reports that the cache folder is missing. Also, weirdly, the images on the SP config page are broken with weird URLs similar to http:///wp-content/plugins... etc, ie. no domain name.

    Does SimplePie not know where my WP's root is?

    Anyone suggest a fix?

    SimplePie version is 2.1.2

    Downgrading SimplePie to 2.1 solves these issues.

    I have the same problem, where can I get a copy of the older version. Its not apparent on the SimplePie site.

    I am having the same problem and I have looked all over for a legacy 2.1 release too with no luck

    The fix in the first lines fixes this issue - don't know why they just don't release a fixed plugin version - it's quite simple.
