Favorites Extension- Failed Upload

Just installed the Favorites Extension and managed to upload several plugins, create 2 groups…but one plugin won’t upload (it’s only 95kB), Google Analytics by WebKinder. FWIW, I also tried uploading GA Google Analytics and it too failed.
Tried logging out, clearing the cache…still no go.

** to be clear, I was trying to upload to the MainWP Dashboard here, not install on a site.

Also…it would be nice if there was at least an option to load favorites from the WP repository - I understand some view this as a privacy issue, but an option would be nice and allow us to be installing recent versions of a plugin, instead of having to keep changing files in the list.

Just had the same problem. It said it was successful but nothing was replaced on the target pages. Was using a group to select targets.


I just tried to duplicate the problem, but I couldn’t. The process worked for me just fine.

Can you please post the community system report from your MainWP Dashboard for review? The report is located in your Dashboard under Status → Server, on the top right of the page.

Hi @RoninK,

thanks for getting back to me.

The report looks good.

Can you tell me does it make any difference if you temporarily deactivate the All In One WP Security plugin?

No difference - seems to be only that plugin. It doesn’t even look like it tries to upload it, just fails. I thought perhaps it was a size/speed issue, however, I managed to upload an even smaller plugin (20kB) without issue.

Hm, strange, but it’s not the plugin issue.
I was able to install it on my test setup.
Would you be able to send me temporary access to your dashboard (via Private Message) so I can check this further?

OK…how do I PM you?

Hi Edd,

if you click on my Name, a popup will appear and you will see the Message button:

Problem resolved by itself today. Feature started working.
Probably just a temp glitch.
