WP Publications Archive
Does anyone here use this plugin? It’s called WP Publications Archive (link to plugin page).
It seems not to have great support tough and it doesn’t run on my WP-Blog. If someone here figures out why, please let me know!
Or anybody here suggesting another plugin that works the same way but is not one of this typical download plugin.
This great plugin is no longer supported by the original developer. Is anyone here interested in taking over?
This plugin actually still functions – the only thing is, you have to rename the folder. Change from:
If you’re getting the “WordPress cannot load wp-publications-archive.upload.php” error.
The plugin will then create a directory in your uploads dir called publications – chmod this to 777.
Let me know how this works out for you and thanks for bringing this plugin to light for me!
Note: There also seems to be a problem with the file titled
wp_up_face.php. This is the file that the plugin links to to display each upload. I have been able to circumvent this (at least on the “Front Office” view) by comenting out the code at line 673 and adding the following above it:
$result->mfUrl = str_replace( ABSPATH, get_bloginfo('url') . '/', $result->fileName ); $result->mfFileName = explode( '/', $result->mfUrl ); $result->mfFileName = array_reverse( $result->mfFileName, FALSE ); $result->mfFileName = urlencode( $result->mfFileName ); $result->mfUrlEncoded = implode( '/', array_reverse( $result->mfFileName ) ); print 'href="' . $result->mfUrlEncoded . '"';
This may not work on a windows host.
Hope this helps,
thx for your reply.
I know it’s working almost fine but as the developer told he stopped to support, I’m a bit worried for future WP version.
But I do actually have a little problem – could you maybe help?
What I found out is that when I download the file from inside the Dashboard, it redirects
to the following link:
and the download works.
But when I try to set up a page, it uses the following link:
and the download is not working.
I’ll guess that this is my only problem with the plugin.
on line 673 in the plugin’s
wp_up_face.phpfile you will find the following code:
echo " href='".$this->url."/wp-content/plugins/wp-publications-archive/openfile.php...
Change the part that says:
This should work – I always install wordpress in root directory so I am not 100% certain, but a call to
I agree that this plugin needs some serious maintenance. I might take it up as that I’ve been on an off creating something much like it. (more off than on in the past 9 months!). How does one go about that? Just pick it up and re-release it? Never done such a thing – I know the GPL is cool and all – but can I just grab something like this and make it my own while giving credit back to the original author?
Let me know if this works,
BTW: how did you get
I’ll sure try this and let you know how it worked.
I think it would be great if someone is taking over – such a great plugin. Would be a shame to lose it.
I did put the link to the plugin “home” in my first post. You should go and check it out – maybe contact the guy and tell him you’re interested in taking over.
For you’re question about the openfile.php – I just uploaded the plugin files to my directory and that’s about it. Although I’m in informatics, I don’t’ count programming to my strengths – I’m a network security and DB guy 😉 So, sorry but I can’t really help you. Experimenting with my blog myself a lot.
And remember there’s no shame for taking over somethings work in this case – losing the plugin would be worst!
I couldn’t resist to try it out – even it’s close to midnight here. You pointed me to the right place. It actually doesn’t matter whether you use $this->url or get_bloginfo(‘url’) both work. Just need to put /wordpress/… before the /wp-content/..
You rock! Thx a bunch!
