Upcoming.org plugin problem (6 posts)

    Hello everyone,

    I downloaded and installed the upcoming.org event plugin located here: http://wp-plugins.net/plugin/upcoming/

    I followed the rather vague instructions, and added my upcoming.org info accordingly. It said to create a cache folder called /upcoming/ in my plugins folder, which I did, because it requires the plugin to write to a cache file in that folder. Okay, fine. I installed the plugin, activated it, added this tag to my sidebar:

    <? php upcoming(); ?>

    But when I look at the site, there's this error:

    Warning: fopen(/home/neekole/public_html/wp/wp-content/plugins/upcoming/
    /5236d87f398f111eea413f1d11c24f2b.rest): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/neekole/public_html/wp/wp-content/plugins/upcoming.php on line 222

    Weird. So I look at line 222 of the upcoming.php file, and there's this:

    function cache_contents($filename, $incpath = true, $resource_context = null) {

    So I'm thinking it's trying to find the $filename thing, but that's just a guess.

    Any idea on what to do? Should I upload a dummy filename into the /upcoming/ folder? I'm confused, as the instructions weren't very detailed.

    Dear nicolelee:

    I just had the same problem and realized that we have to do the following:

    1. Give file permissions to the folder /upcoming to be able to write on it.
    2. In the upcoming.php file look at the line (~35)
    define ('UPCOMING_CACHE_PATH', '/wp-content/plugins/upcoming/');

    You must give the full physical path. In my case I needed to put, instead of '/wp-content/plugins/upcoming/' a path like: 'D:\\inetpub\\mywebsitename\\wp-content\\plugins\\upcoming\\' and it worked.

    Notice the double \\.

    Hope this helps.

    Does anyone have a new link for this plug-in? The link listed is http://ubergeek.dyndns.org/wp-content/downloads/upcoming.zip but the ubergeek site is now gone and the upcoming plug-in is gone with it.

    Or if you can even repost the code somewhere else. Thank you!

    I would also be very interested in getting a copy of this plugin.

    Ugh, too many plugins have gone all 404 on us... This is another. Anyone have the code yet?

    I haven't found the plugin, but I am using the text widget to insert the upcoming.org badge code and it works just fine. Alternatively you can use the RSS widget to pull from your upcoming.org account feed.
