    Hello Joe.

    We are running Genesis Child on ricksmith.me.
    Your plugin worked great on test environment but after we transferred the installation the plugin gave us an error.
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in …/wp-content/plugins/genesis-variable-footer-widgets/plugin.php on line 1
    which is <?php namespace JD_Genesis_Simple_Footer_Widgets;
    Can you help us solve this one?

    Tnx

    Hi @bajsolinowich. I apologize for the late reply. I must have deleted the email notification by accident.

    I checked ricksmith.me and saw that your still using Genesis Simple Footer Widgets so I’m assuming you got everything figured out?

    I haven’t seen this error before and there are a lot of active users. Nonetheless, isolated or a major problem I’m more than happy to help. Let me know if there is still a problem?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Sinisa,

    Actually, I think I know what this is and I’m sure you figured this out already but Genesis Simple Footer Widgets uses namespaces to avoid class collisions with other libraries/frameworks/dependencies/etc. Namespaces are supported in PHP versions >= 5.3.

    What version of PHP are you running on the ricksmith.me? If its PHP 5.2.x or less you’ll have to upgrade to 5.3.x or better yet PHP 7.x.x for full plugin support.

    If you can’t upgrade your PHP I can help you modify the plugin to remove the namespaces if you still need help.

    Thank you,
    Joe Dooley

    Hi Sinisa,

    I am going to close this thread because the plugin seems to be working fine on ricksmith.me . If I’m jumping the gun and there is a problem feel free to reach out to me directly by email or leave a message on my site.

    Thank you,
    Joe
