Hello,

I did a complete fresh install of geeklog 1.5.1. Made zero changes to default config. Downloaded glmenu and placed all files in proper locations. glmenu shows up as a plugin available to install but when I try to install it, this error appears:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/lou/plugins/glmenu/glmenu.class.php on line 170


Reading other forums entries, I tried to disable the links plugin but the same error comes up.

Thanks for any ideas.

Lou

Nevermind........I must have had too much eggnog - for some reason I forgot to read the other 2 pages of comments in the forum on this issue. It appears to be because php4 is what my ISP is running.

Guess I'll work on them to upgrade.

In my continual holiday induced monologue, I got the glmenu plugin installed.

Figuring there are probably more knuckleheads like me who are not PHP pros than there are experts like Blaine, here's what worked for me:

On my site, I went into the cpanel area. There was a configurable php option which basically said which version of php (4 or 5) do you want this site to use to handle all php files. It was set to 4. I changed t to 5 and the plugin install worked perfectly.

I suppose the downside could be that if I had other php files which required 4, that now they may not work properly. I don't so it's not an issue for me, but your mileage may vary.

I'll go away quietly now.

Lou
