DO NOT Use Automatic Plugin Upgrade

I have received several feedback that the Automatic Plugin Upgrade feature in WordPress is causing problem with my plugins.

I want to say that ALL my plugins currently will not work with the Automatic Plugin Upgrade feature because there is a problem with the path. It is a little difficult for me to explain it here.

The new version of my plugins that I am going to release on 1st June 2008 will address this issue. In another words, if are using 1.30 or 2.30 beta of my plugins, the problem has been solved.

So in the mean time, DO NOT use the Automatic Plugin Upgrade feature for my plugin.

  1. Too late;-) Now that I did use the auto-update feature… I always get an 404-Error Mail saying “plugins/polls/images/pollstart.gif and received a 404 (page not found) error. It wasn’t their fault, so try fixing it. ”

    i installed wp-poll manually, but still I got a mail every minute…:-/ What would you suggest?

    Anyway, thanks a lot, the plug-in is great:-) (auto-update insn’t)

  2. thank you lester for making these great plugins
    you help a lot of people


  3. D’oh! I used the automatic update thing and it deleted the plugin completely. Thankfully, re-uploading it fixed everything again.

  4. I used the automatic upgrade too with 2.5.1 and I had to re-upload the plugin to get it to work also. Quick question though: After I uploaded it, it works fine–except the archive doesn’t display correctly. I was using [page_polls] to display the archive and it’s not working. Has this been covered elsewhere?

  5. nothing appear when you do that? If that is the case, you might have a corrupted version of WP 2.5 or ensure that the text is entered in the HTML and NOT visual editor.

  6. Sadly I didnt read this before attempting to upgrade the plugins and thought hmm let me try this auto update when I never usually like doing things that way and bam messed up. I delete them and reupload them but they still don’t show and even have 1 new one uploaded I’ve never used before and it doesn’t show in the list. Now my question is where am I supposed to be looking for the HTML or visual editor to get it to show up in the plugins list?
