Here are the install instructions:
1. Download the zip archive
2. Extract the PHP file from the archive
3. Put it in your wp-content/plugins directory
4. Make sure WordPress/PHP can write to the wp-content directory (chmod 777)
Isn’t number 4 rather foolhardy? Why would I wany to give the enitre world access to my wp-content folder?
CHMOD set to 755 – plugin does not work
CHMOD set to 777 – plugin works.
I’m guessing someone out there knows the answer to this, or is setting the wp-content folder to 777 just fine? (I changed it back to 755 for now until I get an answer)
