Released WP Greet Box version 3.0

I’ve been quiet for the past week for many reasons, but the most important reason is that I’ve been working on WP Greet Box version 3.0.  It turned out that there we so many positive responses (and feature requests) on the WP Greet Box plugin that all I could do is work on it whenever I get the chance (at coffee shops, during lunch breaks, before sleeping, etc).  It sounds tiring, but it was all worth it!

What happened to version 2.0?

I silently released version 2.0 after adding the ability to add your own custom greeting messages per referrer URL.

What’s new in this release?

This release has cookies support so now we do not keep showing the same message to returning visitors.  I also added a configurable default message to show when no referrer match is found.

Where do I download, file bugs, make feature requests, comments, and suggestions?

Please visit the original plugin post.

    I am using several plugs with no problems at all.

    wp-content / 755

    plugins / 755

    wp-greet-box / 755

    Also check this screenshot:….

    Not sure if you got the email, but since I don’t know how your host is setup, can you try doing chmod 777 on wp-greet-box/ and try reactivating? If it works then it’s indeed a permissions issue.

    Hmmm, all I get is:

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare wp_greet_box() (previously declared in /www/htdocs/w008ee35/wp-content/plugins/wp-greet-box/wp-greet-box.php:558) in /www/htdocs/w008ee35/wp-content/plugins/wp-greet-box/wp-greet-box.php on line 559

    Any ideas?

    Is this your first time installing WP Greet Box? I’ve ran into this problem before, but my problem was me already having WP Greet Box activated and trying to activate another instance of it (having 2 copies of the same plugin in separate folders).

    Thanks for the quick reponse:

    Found only one version of the plug on my FTP server and only one version shows up on the plugin page.

    I have a feeling that it has something to do with write permissions. Can you make sure that your apache user (www, httpd, apache, or whatever it is) has the ability to write to the /wp-content/plugins/wp-greet-box folder?

  7. orangeguru

    Oke, 777 did the trick – although this doesn’t make me feel very ‘secure’.


    Thanks for your support.

    No problem. I believe that you can probably get away with 775 because in most cases the apache user is setup to act on group permissions. It might be worth it for you to try 775 to see if it works.
