I wanted to post a quick note because I have received several reports of a serious compatability issue between FeedWordPress and the most recent public release of WordPress, version 2.5.1. Although FWP is broadly compatible with the initial release of WordPress 2.5, the recent update apparently eliminates an interface function that FeedWordPress used to display a box for selecting categories in the Syndication options and the feed settings pages. Since the function no longer exists in WordPress 2.5.1, it means that a fatal PHP error (shown either by a prematurely cut-off display, or in the form of a printed PHP error message) will be triggered if you attempt to use either of these pages in the WordPress Dashboard. (As far as I know, syndication will continue to work fine with WordPress 2.5.1; the error will prevent you from changing configuration settings from within the WordPress Dashboard.)
This problem should, hopefully, be something that it won’t be too hard to fix once I am able to sit down and work on it. Unfortunately, the release came after I had left to visit family in Alabama, so I can’t get to making the fix until I return home early in the upcoming week. Once I do, I’ll release an immediate compatability fix, and then return to work on a more thorough update, which I hope to release sometime during the month of May.
I’ll check back in with y’all once I’ve gotten home.
