I’ve got a WordPress blog http://peculiarplace.com/testlbog2/ that I’m trying to get a plugin to work.
The plugin: MaxBlogPress DealDotCom Widget version 1.4.2
It requires ‘CURL’ or ‘URL file-access’ in order to function.
according to http://wiki.dreamhost.com/CURL ‘CURL’ is available yet the plugin refuses to work.
When I click the activation link it takes over four minutes to report that it’s activated (when this usually takes a second or so with all other plugins)
Then when the widget is added to the blog’s sidebar, the blog page takes equally long to load and when it finally does there’s an error message because it wasn’t able to load the information it needs from another site.
Anyone have any experience with this plugin or clues how to get this working?
Btw- I forgot to mention that I’ve been in contact with the plugin’s developers and the best that they can say is that the only reason it doesn’t work is because both ‘CURL’ and ‘URL file-access’ are disabled.
