    When activated, it wipes out all images in my sidebar and footer. The minute I deactivate it, everything starts working again. It used to work perfectly. This glitch just started in the past two weeks.

    Can you give me your website address so I can take a look?

    I'm having the same problem.
    All that is showing is:
    fatal error: Call to undefined method WP_Error::get_item_quantity() in /home/haarkoning/domains/haarkoning.nl/public_html/wp-content/plugins/pinterest-rss-widget/pinterest-rss-widget.php on line 56
    The plugin worked fine before. I tried some other pinterest plugins but they didn't work either.

    My website address is http://www.haarkoning.nl and my pinterest username is haarkoning

    @Designbrein: From what I can surmise this could be an error when the Pinterest feed is empty, or if you have not specified a quantity of pins in your widget or template tag. Does this make sense? How are you using the plugin? As a widget or shortcode or template tag? And are you specifying a quantity of pins?

    @bkmacdaddy I use the plugin as a widget and I filled in my username in the widget. And I have specified 6 pins as a max number but also tried a different number or nothing, al with the same result.
    The strange thing is that the widget worked fine before.

    Please try updating to the latest version of the plugin (2.0, just updated on 4/16/12), which does not use timthumb.php for image resizing anymore. This should eliminate some issues. Once that’s installed, let me know if you're still having problems.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I tried it but i still have the same problems.
    Also tried it on other sites, located on the same host but different wordpress templates and they have the same issues even with different usernames that work on other sites.

    So I was thinking that it might be something to do with my host, Could it be they don't support something I need to have?

    Very strange. It does sound host-specific based on your description, but there are not any dependencies that your host would require that I can think of, especially with the newest version. I wonder if it has to do with a language or location factor that creates issues with the RSS feed. From what I can find, that type of error usually means the feed is empty.
