Wicketpixie Sources and Favorite...

written over 10 years ago

First of all, great theme! Thumbs up for the ideas, effort and all you guys! I've been using former versions of Wixetpixie and have had similar problems listed below and I kinda hoped this would be fixed with this one, but unfortunately it wasn't...

However, I have some big problems with the whole Social Me activity and status update functionality. And with My Favourites as wel.

The pages (Social Me and My Favorites) don't seem to work always, and when they do (usually after unchecking all the source boxes for activity and status updates) then the sidebar shows errors. But, with this new version, even after unchecking the boxes the pages stay either blank or give fatal errors.

Website: http://www.alphaverse.com
Social Me: http://www.alphaverse.com/social-me
My Activities: http://www.alphaverse.com/my-favorites

1.) Social Me page giving different errors, couldn't detect any pattern yet. Here are they:

a.) when showing anything, then the sidebar malfunctions compeletely. As if the CSS is broken so the sidebar isn't visible on these pages. And in some cases it also stays that way when visiting other posts so the whole website becomes unworkable...

b.) some times just blank page and other times this:

"Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 62490 bytes) in /home/alphave1/public_html/wp-content/themes/wicketpixie/app/simplepie.php on line 7632"

this error also occurs with other lines at the end.

2.) when I check the 'Status Update' box for i.e. Twitter in sourcemanager options then the problem 1.a.) occurs, and sometimes not only on the Social Me page but also on other pages.

3.) My Favourites page not working and giving either a blank page or the 'memory exhaused' error above, albeit with another line indication.

It's a great theme btw, and I still keep using it but if the Social Media functions don't work then I'll have less reason to...it would be unfortunate though.

I hope you can give me some advice on how to fix it, that would be very much appreciated!

thanks in advance,

UPDATE: Problems solved!!!
I found out that some of the plugins caused the problems mentioned above! At this moment, with the plugins disabled, everything seems to work fine!!

Not sure yet which plugins caused the problems, but It might me helpful for those encountering similar problems to deactivate all of them.

Here are the once I used:
- akismet
- wp seo master
- multifeedsnap
- feedrss
- wp super cache
- add/to any
- wp cumulus
- gd star rating
- category cloud
- gravatars2
- wp lytebox
- wp-o-matic

I'll post here when I found out what caused the problems!

Cheers

Almost perfect, but great already!

I have been using WicketPixie for over a year now, and I must say that I like it very much.

It is stylish, it has a lot of features built-in and all cooperating, and - it's just the ultimate WordPress theme. Ever.

The only problem that I am having, is that the bottom bar on my website is kinda... shifted.

Check out this link, to see what I mean:

I'm not completely sure if it's really an issue of WicketPixie itself, but there aren't any problems with my databases, servers or anything like that.

Well yeah, thanks anyway!

Rated 5/5.

I just got a new wordpress on my site just today. I downloaded Wicket Pixie, and I tryed to activate it. When I did that, It says,

The plugin does not have a valid header.

Can you fix this message on wordpress 2.9.1?
Thanks, Nick

Best. WP theme. Ever.

I love it. I use it in my blog. However, I'd like to make a few comments:
1) I couldn't use FeedBurner properly, the link wasn't detected or something. I modified the header file so it used the FeedBurner link instead of the blog's default feed.
2) The new nav menu should be implemented. I allowed myself to modify the header.php: I changed all the nav div for a wp_nav_menu, gave it a name, and created it with the built-in WP menu tool. Works seamlessly.
3) A version in spanish would also be simply great. I as well forked it for my blog (although I'm not using it right now). The only thing I had problems with were the buttons (I can't modify their text). I can contribute with that, if you want.
4) Another neat feature to add is threaded comments. I don't know enough to implement that myself, but it would be nice if you could add it.
5) Something I considered rather dumb was the fact that posts and the home cannot share the same sidebar. I'm ok with it being disabled by default, but not being able add widgets to the home at all was frustrating.
I hope you keep developing. It's really an awesome theme.
