    Plug in version 1.1

    When trying to upload a sample widget file I am getting this error message:
    sample-widgets.json
    Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons.

    I did look at the .json file in my text editor and it is not empty.

    I am a novice at wordpress so I really need any instructions in very elementary terms. Thank you.

    I have discovered a fix for this problem. Looking at other thread topics I ran across some suggestions that I tried and they worked. The steps I took were:
    1. Made sure my PHP version was 5.3
    2. Then changed the php.ini file as indicated below.

    Just solved my own issue:

    In the php.ini file, there’s an “fopen” setting:
    allow_url_fopen = Off

    I had to change it to:
    allow_url_fopen = On

    Which allowed the import of the Widget settings.
