Support » Plugin: Subscribe2 » Subscribe2 6.0 upgrade with warning messages

  • Resolved MDBlogs


    I stupidly did the auto-upgrade for Subscribe2 without going to the Plugin site to look for possible problems. (won’t do this again w/o checking)

    When I uploaded, this is the message I got:

    Enabling Maintenance mode…

    Updating Plugin Subscribe2 (1/2)
    Subscribe2 updated successfully. Show Details.

    Disabling Maintenance mode…

    All updates have been completed.

    It says successfully updated, but the warning messages don’t indicate that it was entirely successful. And I’m not sure if these issues render the Plugin inoperable, or if it’s just a bug that will be fixed with the next version. In the meantime, other than trying to dig up the previous version and reinstalling, any ideas for a fix?

    As always, I’m grateful to the people in this community who can answer questions.

  • @mdblogs,

    The location of that counterwidget.php file changed in the upgrade. The error is warning you that the file could not be found.

    The counter widget is now part of the main plugin and not a separate plugin file.

    The upgrade process should have worked okay but the error messages are telling you that the old plugin file disappeared before it was deactivated. The should not be a great concern.

    Thanks — I’d already replaced it with 5.9. But I’m grateful for your help, and for the Plugin. (I did make a small donation to appreciate the time you’re taking on this.) Should I reload and ignore the warning messages or wait for 6.1?


    6.1 shouldn’t be too long a wait but you may get the same message upgrading from 5.9 to 6.1.

    Okay then, I’ll ignore the warning messages next time. Thanks for your reassurance.
