Popularity Contest Plugin From Alex King Triggers Fatal Error

My blog uses a couple of plug-ins and one of them is Popularity Contest by Alex King. This allows me to display which are my more popular posts (it’s in the sidebar to the right). However, I recently upgraded my WordPress installation, and when I tried to re-activate the Popularity Contest plugin, I was faced with an error message that shows: “Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.”

Turns out that there’s a problem (even with the updated version of the plugin). You’ll need to go to your plugins folder, and look for the Popularity Contest plugin folder. Once inside you should see 3 files. Open popularity-contest.php and scroll down to line 59. Replace require(‘../../wp-blog-header.php’); with require(‘../wp-blog-header.php’); and reactivate your plugin. All should work fine ๐Ÿ™‚
