  • Hi,

    The Admin section since today morning is having a strange problem, it shows a red box on the Admin>Dashbord>Home screen with 5 white Robitic Cartoons with canon bob like image. Following is that the HTML is producing:

    <div class=”error”>

    Hi Majalla,
    Did you find solution for this problem? I am in same situation with my admin dashboard.


    Hi Joe,

    It seems the problem was either related to the new Twitter Roll-out, and it seems the Twitter was crashing. Or my Server has increased the Server side Security through the firewall, and for some other reason the Twitter API’s were not going through the firewall as supposed to. It just disappeared as it case on the same day after a few hours.

    If it is the same, I would strongly suggest try it on a different host if possible or try to check if the firewall/security mechanisms on your hosting provider is not doing this …

    Let me know …

    The “robot page” (Twitter’s HTTP 500 error page) happens when something exceptional happens when requesting the API. Your widgets all call the API and while normally everything should function fine, occasionally thing go a little amiss. When I view your site here from the Twitter HQ, I don’t see any issues with your widgets.

    Hi Majalla,
    Thank you for posting back. This problem disappear on my site after few hours like you said. Now everything is back to normal. I am using “share this” plugin for my social icons.
    However, i hope to not see this robot ever again 🙂
