cforms II and wordpressmu?

Has anyone been able to get cforms working on a wordpress mu installation?

I'm using wordpressmu 1.2.1 (code equivalent to wordpress 2.2), and cforms appears to install and work with one blog. But when I try to activate it with a second blog in the wordpressmu installation, I get the error "Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error."

Based on other troubleshooting posts, I assume this is because cforms tries to write its settings to wp_options, but gets an error because there are options there already

Does that make sense? Or is there likely some other error?


FWIW, I'm running on linux, php 4.4.7 and MySQL 4.1.22, if that might make a difference.

I do remember someone else in the forum confirming that it does run fine on WP MU.

I haven't enabled cforms to specifically deal with WP MU requirements (if there are any). So if WP MU does requirethe plugin to consider certain aspects of writing to the WP DB etc. chances are you'll run into issue.

IF WP MU blogs behaves just like any other WP installation ('logical installations' so to speak) I don't see a reason why it should not work.
