Hi there,
I have created a seating chart and when tried to click ‘View’, I couldnt view the chart and getting an error message like below

Failed to access … plugins/espresso-seating/request.php

How can I fix it ?

The only way I can recreate this is if that file has been removed or renamed or possibly the folder/file permissions are not set correctly.

Can you please check the espresso-seating directory on your site to make sure that the request.php file is there and that it has the correct permissions?

Generally the permissions should be 750 or 755 for a folder and 640 or 644 for a file. Your FTP software should be able to advise permissions.

-Folder Permission is 755 and correct
-Filer Permission is 644 and correct

Hi there,

I logged in with the credentials that you sent and I’m having no trouble at all viewing the seating charts. Is there one chart that’s not loading up?

Same for all the charts

I concur with Josh, I checked with the latest Chrome and IE 10 and had no issues. Have you got Javascript turned on in the browser? Having it turned off didn’t cause the error you mention but it is one possibility.
