Cricket Moods 3.6

I almost forgot to annouce my latest release of Cricket Moods. Changes follow:

  • Now fails silently if the mood image directory does not exist.
  • Fixed a silly omission in cm_list_mood_images for the manage and admin panels.
  • Fix for a possible problem in the manage and admin panels that may cause some mood images to not display.
  • Tried to beef up security by adding nonce and capabilities checks in various places.
  • Switched out my broken JS for jquery.
  • The blank mood lines will now update their mood images properly.
  • Added a warning if the selected mood image directory is not readable.

Go get it and enjoy!

    I just recently set up a wordpress site on my own server. I went to add in you plugin and I got the dreaded “Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error”. I figured ‘hey, maybe if I roll back a version it would work’ or something. Turns out 2.0 works fine but anything 3.0 or better errors out. I’m using WP version 2.2.2, and the latest versions of PHP and MySQL. I’ve been banging my head against this one all afternoon, but to no avail. Any clues?

    Rion, I replied to you through e-mail, but I haven’t heard back. I need to know the exact error message being generated by the plugin to help you. Is it possible it’s conflicting with another plugin you’re using?

    Same Problem for me. 3.6 can not be installed. I’m using WP 2.2.3. Please let me know what further information you exacly need to fix the error.

    I e-mailed both of you, and neither have gotten back to me :(

    I can’t reproduce it on my end.

    Hi Keith,

    sorry, I didnt replied yet, but my server went down and neither web, blog nor mail are working right now. But I was abled to have a look at the logs before it all crashed.
    CM was only working because I switched back to version 2.0. I tried 3.6, 3.5 and 3.3 as well, but neither of them could be installed. I only have few plugins installed. But even if I deactivated them all, CM can not be activated. I think it’s due to the new WP version 2.2.3 I use.
    I did have access to error.log, but unfortunately there is no clue. Not a single line referring to WP or CM at all. I don’t know, if there is an option to set WP into a verbose mode, which would give you more information.

    Best regards, TJ

    Hey there.
    First of all, I want to thank you for your wonderful wonderful plugin *kiss*
    I wanted to let you know how I use it, just in case someone hadn’t thought of it.

    I keep the moodtheme that I want to use in a folder called ‘currentmoodtheme’. That way, when I want to change the mood theme, I just have to rename the folders, and don’t have to go through the hassle of renaming everything. Then I just edit the outstanding pictures under the options.

    I also want to point out a bug to you that I’m not sure if you’re aware of. When I go and edit a post, and re-save (or re-publish) the mood theme saves the information again, and I get a double up of it. e.g. I wrote a post on party and saved with the mood ‘[img] drunk’. I then went back and edited some stuff, and re-saved. The post then showed with ‘[img] drunk & [img] drunk’. To fix the problem, I have to go into my database, find the meta information and delete the extra saved information.

    Hope this helps!

    You have a syntax error in line 900 that php5 doesn’t like. This would explain the fatal errors some people are getting when trying to activate this plugin.

    line 900 of cricket-moods.php

    Ah, yes thank you for that. An overlooked short open tag. I’ve fixed the 3.6 branch in SVN, but the trunk is borked right now.

    However, that would only be a syntax error if the short_open_tag directive in php.ini is changed from its default state of on

    Hi! I’ve made a small alteration to your wonderful Cricket Moods plugin, to make the initial moods array match those available in LJ/myspace mood sets, rather than the default WP smilies, and to display as a dropdown list for the Write Post page instead of a huge list of checkboxes, with single mood only definition [would like to make it multiple but have not been able to get that to work with the dropdown yet]. I was hoping to include this mildly altered version in a plugin pack I’m planning for a one stop plugin install solution using WPMU, which is how I’m implementing it on my site, I have repackaged and uploaded the plugin here, please let me know if there’s anything I need to include or shouldn’t have done – I’m very new to this!
