[Resolved] Warning: fopen failed to open stream – installation

  • During the installation, I received a warning stating that it could not open the stream ‘wp-content\plugins\wordpress-bootstrap-css\Less.php’. It allowed me to activate the plugin anyway so I did and I could not get Bootstrap activated.

    As for the first problem, I found that Less.php is actually a folder and not a file. Is that a bug?

    For the second problem, I’m aware that the default style.css is linked but is the plugin suppose to work out the box after configuring the settings, or do we suppose to change the stylesheet link in the head tag? If the latter, what do we change it to? I did not see a css folder or the file anywhere for Bootstrap. Is this a consequence of the first warning I mentioned above?

  • Actually, I’m just noticing the plugin states that it’s compatible up to WordPress 3.8.3. Could that relate to the warning/error since I have 3.9.1?

    Sorry, I was mistaken. The plugin still works. Now there is only the matter of the warning mentioned? Any idea?

    I’m not sure how you would have received that warning because I don’t include a Less.php file. This was done in a previous version of the plugin because of the nature of the LESS, but no more.

    The plugin is perfectly compatible up to WordPress 3.9 – there just has been no need to release an upgrade just to change this tag.

    So which part exactly of the plugin isn’t working for you, and are you still receiving a warning notice?

    Interesting. Well the plugin works. I only got that warning during the installation. It still allowed me to activate and I haven’t had a problem since. The only step I can tell you I did was installing directly from my WordPress admin and not the website. At this point, it may not be too important if you don’t know what’s going on. I’ll just have to keep playing with it and installing it elsewhere to see if it every comes up again.

    Yea, I’m not really sure what way to go with this. If it’s working for now, then there’s nothing essentially to fix.
    But, if you do get another error, take a note of it and post here for me to dig into it further.

    Thanks for reporting it
