Today I released a hotfix release due to some errors that could occur when using customer reviews. The errors occured when requesting the customer reviews page from Amazon. Unfortunately the webservice doesn’t retrieve this information directly for some time now so I created this workaround for version 0.9.9.1.
Either the Amazon severs have some trouble or the plugin requests got locked out by Amazon. Whatever happened, I changed the way of requesting (put php curl as preffered way) and implemented some more error handling so that the problems should no longer bother you in the new version.
Keep in mind to backup your template files before updating as I experienced WordPress to delete my old directory completey before extracting the new version’s archive. This is kind of inconvenient as I solved this issue with the last update (0.9.9.2). But the hotfix is more important right now and I try to find a way for keeping the template files again in future.
And check if your cache directory is still writable.
Please let me know what you think about the new version and this plugin in general.
