Hey all ... I am stumped.

Sometime yesterday my plugins configuration page stopped loading within my v1.7.0 GL. I was actually getting ready to install an extension, and had only extracted the plugin tarballs into my GL system plugins folder. Beyond that, I haven't even copied any files into the html folder. While logged in as the site administrator...when I click on the Plugins link from either configuration or the left menu, I am presented with the error "This file can not be used on its own." Which is odd, because it used to load on its own and every other configuration loads on its own just fine.

Can someone give me some tips? I am turning on Debugging now, I know that is the first step.

Thanks,
Jeff

Ok .. I figured it out.

I deleted the ban plugin folders and this seems to have corrected the issue. I will have to read further to figure out why the simple existence of the ban folder inside the main plugins folder would break the whole plugins.php from loading.

Still ... if anyone knows, please post a reply for those who may come across this in the future.

Ban ... it make be a version issue. I'm running 1.7.0 and I think Ban was made for 1.6.

Plugins usually do not break from Geeklog version to Geeklog version especially one like Ban that deals more with internal things. I believe the latest version of the Ban plugin is 1.0.3 and I am pretty sure it works fine in 1.7.0. I will double check it tomorrow on my dev site and let you know.

I was able to install the ban plugin 1.0.3 without a problem. It should run fine on Geeklog version 1.3.8 and up.

Ok ... I will have another look. But I swear I simply extracted the zip file into the system level plugins folder, just like I do for all of the plugins, and when I try to load my plugins configuration module, I get the error stated in the original post.

I'll let you know if I run into more troubles.

Thanks,
Jeff
