Update 2 : the patch is not needed anymore as there is a new version of category icons (2.1) that is compatible with WordPress 2.8+. Download it to resolve the issue.
Update 1 : here is the detailed procedure (thanks to ycs for the tip) :
- deactivate the plugin,
- log out of the admin control panel,
- replace the old category_icons-panel.js in the js folder by this one,
- clear your browser cache,
- close all open browser windows,
- open a browser, log in and reactivate the plugin.
Please leave me a comment if it’s not working.
WordPress says that there is an update for Category Icons Widget, whereas you have the latest version installed :
I don’t know why, but when the WordPress server (api.wordpress.org) is asked to check for updates, it gives this response for the widget :
[category-icons/category_icons-widget.php] => stdClass Object
[id] => 1258
[slug] => category-icons
[new_version] => 1.8.6
[url] => http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/category-icons/
[package] => http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/category-icons.zip
The version received is 1.8.6 instead of 1.1. So, the solution to get rid of this, is to edit the file category_icons-widget.php and modify the line :
to this :
In the next version of the plugin, it’ll be corrected.
