After upgrading from 3.3 to 3.4 i'm getting the following error:

 

In the admin menu the Cforms link has changed to /cforms-options.php

So:

3.3 = http://www.domainname.com/cms/wp-admin/admin.php?p…..ptions.php
3.4 = http://www.domainname.com/cforms-options.php

3.3 Works fine, but 3.4 startings have trouble as soon as i'm cling the Cform button.

 

Any idea why this link URL has changed?

daniel,

the cforms admin menu and conseqently the link structure has changed as of release 3.0. Between 3.3 and 3.4 no major changes were introduced that could cause the admin pages to not load.

With 3.0, cforms has become a top-level menu item, the usual URL would be:

…admin.php?page=contactforms/cforms-options.php

What kind of errors do you experience? Which button is it, the editor (tinymce) button or a button on the cforms admin pages?

Also, make sure you erase the browser cache.

Hi,

On top-level the link of the buttom has changed to /cforms-options.php

instead of  "…admin.php?page=contactforms/cforms-options.php"

 

So there is no ….admim.php?…. anymore.

Therefore when clicking the buttom, i get an  'the page cannot be found'.

So it concers the Cform admin page button.

Any idea?

Wow that's a new one. Honestly, no, I have no idea why it would do that. Have you put the plugin in its /contactforms/ directory?

What happens, when you deactivate and re-activate the plugin, any error messages? Do you see the top level cforms menu item? 

What WP release are you running?

Hi. WP 2.1.3 us running.

Yes its running in Contactforms directory.

Re-activating does not change the  problem.

Cform menu item become visible again, but still pointing to /cforms-options.php

 

When Disabling 3.4 and  activating 3.3 again (in contactform.new dir.) , it runs without any problems…

Daniel,

Here is the issue: Looking at your website (gathered from you email addres)  and especially the header information, this is what I see:

href="http://www.hoitink.net/cms/wp-content/plugins//cfo….."

The problem is //cforms.css

I'm not sure why this doesn't happen with 3.3 (it's the same code that determins the path for the plugin!) but you're the second person to experience that.

Here is an interims fix:

replace

$plugindir = substr( plugin_basename( __FILE__ ),0,
strrpos(plugin_basename( __FILE__ ),'/') );

with

$plugindir = "contactforms";

in the folllowing php files (at the top of the code section of each):

  • cforms.php
  • cforms-database.php
  • cforms-global-settings.php
  • cforms-help.php
  • cforms-options.php

That
should do the trick

Hi Oliver,

 

Thanks again for the great support!

Everything is running smooth again.
