Testimonials Widget
[resolved] Widget doesn't appear (10 posts)

    I have installed the testimonials widget on a demo site for the client, and it is working perfectly. Now I'm building the client's site, and the widget not only doesn't appear, it stops the rest of the HTML from loading. When I look at the HTML source code, it stops at the end of the last widget before the testimonials widget HTML should appear, i.e. the rest of the sidebar code as well as the footer code and the </html> closing tag is missing.

    I am using the same version of WordPress and theme on both sites. There is no duplicate jquery.js in the theme or anywhere else. Any ideas?

    Sounds like a PHP Fatal error. Check your error_log.

    If still stuck, uninstall all plugins, then activate one at a time till the problem recurs.

    Thanks for the quick reply. The error log shows the following:

    [01-Feb-2013 18:54:57 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_strcut() in /home/globalspeak/public_html/wp/wp-content/plugins/testimonials-widget/testimonials-widget.php on line 848

    Argh… I'll need to work up a work-around for PHP servers without Multibye String support.

    Haven't web hosts around the world ever heard of UTF-8 and multiple languages?

    For now, if you can downgrade to 2.7.8. You should be fine.

    Yes, 2.7.8 works fine. Thank you very much! The host is a small company in the American midwest. I will contact them about upgrading their PHP.

    Yeah, I had inspiration after a wonderful break and meals with friends and my wife. Release 2.7.13 resolves the mb_strlen and mb_strcut.

    Hey Michael Cannon I am also having problems with mine, my testimonial widgets arent showing up - http://www.olenick.com/services/project-management/ - under What Clients Say. I have been working on it for a while, and I have no idea why its not working. It just disappeared.
