Hello and welcome …
This is a web update on loss of widgets and more shameless promotions on my Book’s.
The web up date.
… My sidebar widgets disappeared from my main page, but they were showing on the other ‘Pages?’ — I searched the web high and low, and found there was indications, that this issue had affected other people? … But nowhere did it say how they fixed it, or what the issue was?
Well I can tell you.
When the PHP parser trundles through your pages putting them on screen. It does this in sure knowledge of getting to the end of the file. If it aborts IE: the file end is not reached, then all operations are caught in ‘an error trap’ and ‘terminated’ … And that includes your widgets which are processed last.
… If you suffer from this condition and you’ve trawled the ‘Internet’, and stumbled across my site? Then my advice is, look carefully at your last comment, either on your main ‘HOME’ page or the one ‘PAGE’ that has been affected.
PHP Parser will abort on.
<!– quotes you placed inside ‘your comments’ –>
… And quotes: … esp’ blockquotes.
<blockquote></blockquote> with no text … the reason these are being shown is because the chars for the “<!–” is being represented as a number and not a parser command. This has been written with the “Visual” and not the “HTML” tab version.
… And another example that chokes the PHP Parser is a ‘nul’ terminated string.
IE “And this is the news…( and the string isn’t terminated) … These are usually placed there, when you work in the HTML tab. It’s powerful but dangerous.
… There are others, but that’s what you’re initially looking for in your own comments, and the comments of your readers.
…. I’ve placed an updated version of Gennaro’s Children – Book 1 – the Gathering: on the site. Its a complete re-write.

Also while your here.
I’ll provide a link to my second thrilling Book in the series (terrible and shameless plug)
Gennaro’s Children – Book II – Generations: … on my site.
… I’ve finally pulled the chapters sections: BTW, in my eagerness it disable the links I cleverly placed all the links inside html several <!– ‘rem’ –> ‘rem’ statements? — not a good idea with PHP running in raw mode.
Many thanks for reading Jessica.
