  • Whoops. Sorry for so much bold, I got sloppy with the editor.

    I’m having the same problem. I was using Twitter Tools but it hates FeedWordPress, or rather, FeedWordPress hates it and I need the syndication pulls so had to stop using Twitter Tools. The thing is, if Twitter Tools can pull tweets without a problem, I’m not sure why Twitter for WordPress can’t. A fix would be really nice.

    Thanks for the tips. I just figured it out, it’s that blasted TinyMCE Advanced which keeps causing me problems. I need the spacing (html stripping) it gives. Anyone know of a workaround? It’s such a common problem that I can’t find a good solution for it.

    Thanks for the tip. Not sure if that worked as I broke something else, but I’ll report back. I’m headed out of town for a week but will pick it up when I get back.

    Thanks for the tip! I’ll take a look and see how they are coding that. If anyone has any loop tips, those would be great as well as I prefer to not rely on plug-ins. Thanks!

    Thanks Esmi,

    I had wondered how that worked. But what about the whole combining scripts? Any thoughts there?

    Also, I read through enqueue a bit, but I’m not sure I understand no conflict mode. I’m not quite sure how <?php wp_head(); ?> works though it seems like that’s where the various plug-in scripts are called. So even when I use the “proper” method of loading JQuery, I’ll end up with NextGen loading it as well which will cause havoc with my various Cycle animations etc.


    Yeah, the / does that. Check that your permalink slugs are pointing to the right page, that can often cause the problem.


    Yes, in Settings/Permalinks change the option Category Base to /.

    The period need to be there, it’s not just punctuation here. So:


    That should fix it.

    Have you changed the MySQL database? Log in using phpMySql and go under wp_options and change all the URLs. There are two that really need to be changed – Site URL and Home. The one is on the first page, the second is on the second. The other option is to export the entire database and check “Add DROP TABLE / VIEW / PROCEDURE / FUNCTION / EVENT”. Open the database up in a text editor and find and replace all instances of your URL. Then Import the database back in. By adding the Add Drop it will replace all of your fields with the imported ones. I move sites all the time using this method as I initial developed on WIP subdomains. If you have any trouble with any of this let me know and I’ll walk you through it.


    I took a look and it’s the link to the image url(“images/signupboxREV.jpg”) in your css. Because you’re going deeper and it’s not finding the image. In Firebug I changed it to this url(“/images/signupboxREV.jpg”) and it shows up fine. It’s telling the CSS to look in the root directory that way.

    Thanks Esmi,

    with your help I figured it out. The original developer had used Magic Fields to create the posts and had the Magic Fields option to hide posts containing them. I haven’t used this plug-in much before so was unfamiliar with how it deals with posts. So, problem solved!

    Thanks for the tips, I really appreciate it.

    You just need an else. I do something similar on one of my sites. This is slightly different but you can see what I am doing:

    <?php if($src_featured_video1 !== '') {  ?>  	 <!-- If there is a video display the video --!>
    	<a href="">Get the Flash Player</a> to see this player.
    	<script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo(get_bloginfo('template_directory')); ?>/js/swfobject.js"></script>
    	<script type="text/javascript">
    		var s1 = new SWFObject("<?php echo(get_bloginfo('template_directory')); ?>/js/player.swf","play","640","480","9","#FFFFFF");
    		s1.addParam("flashvars","file=<?php bloginfo('url'); ?><?php echo $src_featured_video1; ?>&image=<?php bloginfo('url'); ?><?php echo $src_featured_image1; ?>_lg.jpg&backcolor=FFFFFF&autostart=true&&screencolor=FFFFFF&border=true");
    		<?php } else { ?> <!-- If there isn't video, display image 1 --!>
    						<?php if($src_featured_image1 !== '') {  ?>
        					<img src="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?><?php echo $src_featured_image1; ?>_lg.jpg"  width="600px" />
        					<?php } ?><br />
    		      			<?php if($src_featured_caption1 !== '') {  ?>
        					<?php echo $src_featured_caption1; ?><br /><br />
        					<?php } ?>
    		<?php } ?>

    It first checks if there is a video URL in a custom field, if there isn’t it loads the image. Then it checks for info in the other various fields which are echoed if they have content.
