    WordPress automatic plugin upgrade not working

    Thursday, October 16th, 2008

    Automatic plugin upgrade for WordPress is a gem of a feature, when it works.  If you’ve tried updating your WordPress plugins using “upgrade automatically” in the plugins list and are getting error messages like:

Specifically, I needed a way to add tags into wp_list_categories so that WordPress.
