Support » Fixing WordPress » UTW and Sideblog – not playing nicely together

  • I have two plugins that don’t seem to want to play nicely together.

    Sideblog: http://katesgasis.com/2005/10/24/sideblog/
    UTW: http://www.neato.co.nz/ultimate-tag-warrior/

    Latest version of each.

    In general, all seems to work just fine. However, it all goes pear-shaped when clicking on a UTW tag. What’s supposed to happen is you get a list of all the posts with that tag. Instead, now I get a 404 and SQL Errors like:
    WordPress database error: [Unknown column 'category_id' in 'where clause']
    SELECT DISTINCT * FROM wp_posts INNER JOIN wp_post2tag p2t on wp_posts.ID = p2t.post_id INNER JOIN wp_tags t on p2t.tag_id = t.tag_id WHERE 1=1 AND post_date_gmt <= '2006-05-23 14:25:59' AND (post_status = "publish" OR post_author = 1 AND post_status != 'draft' AND post_status != 'static') AND post_status != "attachment" AND category_id != 18 AND t.tag IN ('gliffy') GROUP BY wp_posts.ID ORDER BY post_date DESC LIMIT 0, 7

    Disabling Sideblog cures that.

    Tried leaving some comments for the sideblog author (and I see some others have the same issue). No response.

    Curious to see if anyone else has fought this battle — and if so, looking for ideas on how to resolve it.

  • Well, after examining the plugins (I don’t use sideblog, though I love UTW), I sorta understand what the problem is, though I’m at a loss to explain it and stumped on how to fix it. It’s like the sideblog_where() function executed, but sideblog_join() did not, and I don’t quite see why. Might be useful to add some debugging code to some of those and see what execution path is occuring there.

    Thanks for looking at it Otto42. I guess I’ll try and throw some debugs in there in the near future if nothing else bubbles up.

    As an update: a new version of Sideblog was released that appears to fix this.
