WordPress Automatic Upgrade. A New WordPress plugin — 9 Comments

  1. Hi Kirk,

    Found the bug, it’s apparently no one’s fault but there is some code in the DoFollow plugin that breaks the entire operation.

    In there on line 44

    if (is_plugin_page()):

    is causing the problem since the plugin was not activated alreaydy the method throws a fatal error and the plugin fails, the reason you may have seen a blank page is because your server settings are not set to show you errors or something. But I am fixing the errors right away and will release patched version which will continue without activating the plugin and show the user a message about it.

    Thanks for pointing this out will help me solve this bug so that other users will not face it again.


  2. Oh I can’t wait to try this!! Finally an easier way to update. Have appointments this afternoon but if I get stuck on this tonight I’ll be back with “HELP”. Thanks Kirk and Keith!

  3. Hi Keith,

    No problem. I’m glad I caught it right off since a lot of folks use the DoFollow plugin. I personally know a couple-three WordPress type bloggers that will be anxious to use your plugin (Hi Elaine). 😀

    Great job Keith!

  4. Hi Elaine,

    Yup…Just what you’ve been waiting for and just what the doctor ordered for all the WordPress do-it-yourself-ers out there…including this one.

    Just keep in mind that if you’re using the DoFollow plugin you need to disable it before you run the upgrade. Keith is working on a fix for this. I think I remember that you were running a different one for the do-follow function though.

    Let me know how it works out.

  6. Grrr………why doesn’t this stuff work on the first time for me? I think I’m updated but I had to activate all my plugins. I hope everything is back to normal 🙂
