Rats, a Rovidx Plug In Install Error!

This is what I get when I try to install Rovidx to my newly updated wordpress.org site: 
Fatal error: Can't use function return value in write context in /home/zdean/metrofilmfestival.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-smart-tv/lib/rovidx-smart-tv-roku-dfp.phpon line 245

Update to the new version (1.3.5) which will fix that error.

1.) Hi Rob, I'm sorry to say that I did the update, and then I tried to activate it and got Fatal error: Can't use function return value in write context in...
 /wp-content/plugins/wp-smart-tv/lib/rovidx-smart-tv-roku-dfp.phpon line 220

2.) I then tried to start fresh.  So I deleted the Plugin, and uploaded the new version.   I got the same line 220 error.  

YIPES!

Hey Rob, In addition to my last post with the error... /wp-content/plugins/wp-smart-tv/lib/rovidx-smart-tv-roku-dfp.phpon line 220
-- I'm using Wordpress.org (Should I be using Wordpress.com?)

Ok, figured out where the issue was.  Watch for an update in the next 24 - 48 hours.

Re: Generate Direct Publisher JSON feeds with Wordpress

When I click on the Roku Feed I get this error. 

Not Found
The requested URL /wp-json/tv/roku/ was not found on this server.
[hr]
Apache/2.4.10 (Debian) Server 


I checked my permalink settings and I have them set to this: 
https://lifegeni.us/index.php/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/


 

I also enabled WP Super Cache and I have Jetpack installed. Not sure what else I should be doing to get the feed going? Anyone have any suggestions?



Thanks in advance!

Not exactly sure, would you mind pasting the full actual URL?   The line about "The requested URL /wp-json/tv/roku/"  shouldn't the url be ending with the .json  (ex: /channel.json) extension?

You could host the file at myjson.com if you need to push it thru while you're figuring it out. Their urls work.

Yeah it's https://www.lifegeni.us/wp-json/tv/roku/
That's the link I get from the plug-in and when I hit download json I get a file not found error. If it helps, I'm.hosting my WordPress site on Google compute.

Hi Lifegenius,

If you click on the button to download the JSON, does it pull down a file?
Another question what version of WordPress is the site using?
When you click on the url "https://www.lifegeni.us/wp-json/tv/roku/"
I get the error "The requested URL /wp-json/tv/roku/ was not found on this server."

The permalink that is set up for posts and pages in WordPress won't have any bearing on this plugin since it is generating a JSON file to feed to Roku.
I don't see that there is a permission issue, the error indicates that the file is not found.  

Is this on a shared hosting platform or something like that it might be a restriction of the hosting platform.

I'm running my wordpress site on a google instance. I had no issue generating a json file with another plugin. Downloading the file generates an error, file not found. I'm running wordpress 5. Could that be it? Any other ideas?

I doubt that there would be a problem with WordPress 5.  While the changes within WordPress were dramatic, this functionality would not be related to that. 
If it generates an error when trying to download the file saying that the file doesn't exist, to me that would indicate that there is some write permission and the file is not being created corretly. 
I know that when I drop to command line in my WP site I can't find the file because it's some WP magic, but I can get the file downloaded fine.

Maybe @rovidx_media has some idea for your issue.

To be honest, I have also not been able to get my WP-Smart TV to work either, but I am able to download the file. My created json just flat generates an error on Roku DP setup, saying that the images are wrong and that the feed doesn't exist, when I hand create the JSON it works just fine with the exact same links so I am still working on what the heck is going on with mine.  ( http:/domainname.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/mountains-1920x1080-800x450.jpg ) is how the image links show up while it should be ( http://domainname.com/wp-content/upload ... 00x450.jpg )

I have my channel running now. I gave up trying to make it work on my justhost domain and I got a new domain through the super cheap option on dreamhost and it works fine there.
