Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘Text/Diff/Renderer.php’

Was just trying to view one of my post that i modified once after being published and bumbed up with a page with these error messages:

Warning: ini_set() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/wacdesig/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 1517

Warning: require_once(Text/Diff/Renderer.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/wacdesig/public_html/wp-includes/Text/Diff/Renderer/inline.php on line 17

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘Text/Diff/Renderer.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/wacdesig/public_html/wp-includes/Text/Diff/Renderer/inline.php on line 17

Apparently this is due to my hosting provider that have disabled the use the the PHP function ini_set(). Great !!! how do i edit post that i have edited before… fortunately i found out someone that came up with a solution :).

Please note that this issue is only for WP 2.6 and is cause by the new Revision module that allows you to view a revision of your post before it was edited.

Here is the link to the solution for this problem:http://www.code-styling.de/english/wordpress-26-and-the-textdiff-fatal-errors

I also found another solution for those who don’t want to download the modified WP source file that is proposed in the first solution

Edit the wp-includes/Text/Diff.php, line 52 :
require_once ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/Text/Diff/Engine/’ . $engine . ‘.php’;

Edit the wp-includes/Text/Diff/Renderer/inline.php, line 17 :
require_once ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/Text/Diff/Renderer.php’;

BarCamp Mauritius Session

Logo BarCamp MauritiusThis Saturday i attended the first BarCamp in Mauritius, which was a great initiative from the organizers(Pierre Bernard). Even though some of the persons that should be attending did not come, it was really great and everyone that attended the session was really satisfied by the level of discussion and presentations that took place.

Ubuntu Logo The first presentation was on Ubuntu Linux release performed by Malcolm(hobbyist bater bis). He detailed several aspect of the OS as it is becoming more and more popular for it’s ease of use and growing community support. And the possibilities for anyone to have access to a free operating system that enables any user to perform basic PC operating. With slides showing Firefox 3.0 installed by default on the latest version and Open Office with is a pretty good free alternative to Microsoft Office.

Wordpress LogoThen came the intervention of Vincent(bloggeur solidaire humorist), on how to install, manage and optimize a new WordPress installation. His presentation started with the installation of the WordPress zip file in a virtual directory that is used by his Apache server on a local machine. He created a new database using phpMyAdmin and then finalized the installation explaining the purpose of a good prefix for your WP Tables, which is by default “WP_”. After the installing we shown how to use plugins and widgets to enhance your WP Experience and you pages presentation. There was also a small debate on SEO Optimization on WP and how to enable permalinks or clean links to be better reference by search engine. It was a good introduction to WP and how i can be use to perform day to day blogging on the web.

Time for change !!! new wordpress theme

It’s been while since i last wrote something on my blog, and also make some changes, these last month have been quiet busy. I first step to get back to the blogging community is to get a lighter look for my blog, and start writing some more post. 🙂 since i have been doing many interesting things lately.

So how does my new theme look like ? ( I still have to make some changes thought to accept some ads and so on )

the “dark” theme, now widget enabled…

Theme is now widget enabled.

After an hour of widgets documenting, my theme is not widget enabled…

Now it’s time to create some widgets… I have a 2 sidebar widget content. Isn’t this cool !!!


there was a bug in the funtion.php file… :S when i created a new


–not to forget the conditional tags

if(!is_admin()) //If you forget this the admin panel, might start given up on you

Some funny statements that send out the header….


But it’s fixed now, maybe i’ll find out some other bugs latter on.

Theme change… Look out !!!

Changing my fresh pursuit theme to a Bartelme Design theme.

After a long run, i have decided to change my current theme to a more popular one. I thought about creating my own themes, but unfortunately i am left with only half completed designs in photoshop :(. Thus i will be using this theme for a while. But i will also upload my theme proposition very soon on flickr for interested people to try to work on them.

Wacdesigns WordPress Theme V2

I am back with a completely new theme idea, from the first version i realized that it was a bit too dark and way too compact… things were not obvious. So i re-designed it completely using lots of whitespaces… tell me what u think about it.layout_v02.jpg

WordPress.com and Microsoft.com release new website designs

On the 14th of december Microsoft launched it’s new homepage designs which is much more streamline and adapted to the upcoming for Microsoft Windows Vista theme. The interface is pretty nice, having explorer like window, that pops up, with AJAX content, and changeable views like typical explorer view, very nice and intuitive :).

As for WordPress, the homepage has evolved more in the model of blogger, with Top Blogs and Post on the main page, together with Most popular tags used in the wordpress blogs…. quiet nice to find out what are the most popular subjects that are talked about in the blogs now :).

My first wordpress plugin

Good news i have been kinda motivated this weekend after my session of water sports 🙂 I have decided that i should creat a word press plugin to be able to interact with Google Maps. This saturday i have been working the whole day on it… it’s not in a fully working version already but here are some of the features that i want to include in the first release of the plugin.

  • Integration of WP rich text editor
  • Marker with editable HTML text info window for marker ( Where you will be able to say something about the location you have pointed out)

Only these 2 features to start with… 🙂

Coming features would be

  • Polyline ability
  • Dragable markers
  • Easy photo include in the HTML text info window for marker

I plan on releasing the first version end of this week.

Technorati tags and wordpress

Today i wanted a nice and cool way to add some Technorati tags to my post. I searched the web as usual and came by this really good plugin that did the job as it should be.

Still there are some stuff that i am trying to figure out, because while using canvas as main theme, i able to see the tags only when displaying single post but not on my main page, i’lll get some time to see what’s wrong… and update this post.
