I found a bug. What do I do?

Contact me! This is a complex plugin and the only way I can ensure it’s robust is to get bug reports and fix the problems that crop up. Please include as much information as you can when reporting (PHP version, your blog’s site, the error you saw and how you got to the page that caused it, et cetera).
