valerie Posted May 10, 2007 Share Posted May 10, 2007 (edited) I'm trying to get a wordpress plugin called PlugInstaller running on my wordpress site. The links generated by the plugin all point to the domain root and so I get 404s since my blog is located at example.com/blog. I asked the plugin author about this and he thought it might be something with my hosting. Maybe I need php5? Here's what he said: >When you click the links, the variable $location (which should point to “plugins.php” and the __FILE__ php constant don’t seem to be parsed. This seems to me like a problem with your php parser. Do such problems also occur with other plugins you have installed? Maybe you have set some directive within your php.ini that does not allow the direct usage of variables in the form < ?=$variable?> (instead of < ?php echo $variable; ?>), as this is exactly what is being output to the url - %3C?= stands for “<?=” which should normally have php print the value of the following variable (in this case, the $location variable containing the current file name) or to use double quotes on strings to have php replace all variables within the string with their values. I don’t think this is a subdirectory problem, as subdirectories should be correctly recognized. . --- Note: I do not have trouble with any other plugins.
