    WordPress and all the plugins are written in the scripting language PHP. But this plugin needs at least version 5.3 to work properly.

    Your site is hosted on right? Bluehost supports PHP 5.3 but not by default, read this page for instructions on how you can enable it

    Hi: I am a computer illiterate and do not know what you mean by "PHP 5.3 is required to run WP-Summy". What do I have to do to get this plugin to work (in lay terms) ? Thank you. DB

    Everytime I try to activate your plugin, it gives me this message: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home1/holkidsc/public_html/wp-content/plugins/summy/summy.php on line 29

    I need a plugin that summaries by blogs when people search for content...What's wrong? thanks
