Recent Links on WP 1.5.2

There is a problem with the Recent Links plugin on WordPress 1.5.2. It seems the redirection for the archives page and the monthly archives is failing, most probably a result of the changes to the handling of PHP global variables in the current WP. Thanks to the several users who have emailed to inform us. I am still trying to find the fix, and will write about it along with a plugin update at the soonest time possible. Please note that this is not a security problem, WP and wp-recent-links are working fine except that they’re not displayed correctly. 😉

  1. I installed Recent Links on my 1.5.2 and the monthly archives doesn’t work. But I also backtracked to WordPress 1.5 and it’s the same problem. No matter what month I click it only displays the current one.

  2. Just checked out the first post, John’s website. He uses a permalink structure, so I switched mine over by adding the htaccess rules, and now it works.

  3. Hm … up till now I didn’t need any .htaccess in the blog root.

    Okay, but I tried the lines which I found at the installation text of recent links (but didn’t work). Is this the right .htaccess:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^recent-links/feed?/?$ wp-recent-links-rss2.php [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^recent-links?/?$ wp-recent-links.php [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^recent-links/([0-9]{4})?/?([0-9]{1,2})?/?$ wp-recent-links.php?y=$1&m=$2 [QSA]
