WordPress symlink fixer

DEPRECATED: This plugin is now obsolete as WordPress core has incorporated this patch.

The problem

Symlinks are a great way to be able to test a WordPress plugin against multiple WordPress versions whilst in development. Unfortunately because of the way WordPress and PHP work things don't exactly go as planned when you do this.


  1. Put symlink-fixer.php into wp-content/mu-plugins/.
  2. Profit


Doesn't work with 'register-activation-hook' as this does not use plugin_url()
