[resolved] Error "Filename cannot be empty" while importi (7 posts)

    Hey there,

    I want to export my widget settings from an Online-Server into my local environment. The export works fine. The JSON-File isn't empty. However everytime I try to import the JSON-File/click on the "Show Widget Settings", I get the error message "Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: Filename cannot be empty in [...]\wp-content\plugins\widget-settings-importexport\widget_data.php on line 373". After that I get the buttons Select/Un-Select All Widgets but there is no content.

    Any idea where the problem could be?

    I am experiencing the same issue running WP 3.4.1. I select the JSON and click the 'Show Widget Settings' once and nothing happens. Upon clicking the button a second time, I receive the same error message listed above.

    Anyone else?

    Going to open myself to public ridicule by admitting a simple mistake so that others may benefit from my experience: At the time of my previous post, I had only tried this in IE9 (9.0.8112.16421). I have since tried in Firefox and the operation completed successfully.

    I've tried Firefox and Safari, same error. Why would this be a browser issue? mvadar is this plugin only supporting Firefox, I must of missed that somewhere because using a browser shouldn't be a "mistake" so don't blame yourself.

    Looks like the plugin doesn't work with wp 3.4.1. I upgraded to 3.5 and the import functionality worked.

    I've tested in IE8 and 9 and haven't found any issues using 3.4 or 3.5 and the latest version of the plugin. Is anyone still experiencing any?

    Marking as resolved as I am no longer able to replicate and have gotten no responses from users experiencing the same issue.
