Title: CPshop is erasing sections when I save
Post by: Sally on 01/12/14 at 21:32:00
Huge bummer. Has this happened to anyone else?

I save all changes, then go back to look and the sections are just disappeared.

I made a backup... guess it's a bug that will be with us forever :)

Note: I am still fully retired.  This is a one-shot deal.

I've attempted to put up a fix to this "moved permanently" issue.  For clarity's sake, it is an attempt by CafePress to block cpshop (again).  This update attempts to circumvent the issue, but it's only a matter of time before they do something more drastic.

Anyway, if you download and install the latest update (2.8x), I think it'll work.  Though you may want to take extra precautions beforehand, to make sure it works on your system, or wait for someone else more daring to confirm that it works.

I can't promise it'll work on all servers; it's using perl's LWP-UserAgent library, and I don't know that all webhosts offer it.  But it's the best solution I could think of that wouldn't require a complete rewrite or something equally time consuming.
