All was working well on my blog http://factoringblog.co.uk/ until this weekend. I upgraded to the latest version of the theme and added a new plugin whereupon the problems started. The site still displayed but I couldn’t access the admin dashboard and the web host had to disable all of the plugins and re-install a backed up version of GeneratePress.
I have now upgraded again to the current version and have tried to re-enable the plugins one by one but one is causing problems now although it worked well until the weekend.
If I enable “Easy Social Icons” and put the resulting widget into the right hand sidebar it seems to work. The problem is that I want it in the header sidebar which is where it was but if I try to install it there I get the following error message on public display:-
“Notice: Undefined index: title in /home6/ianj4750/public_html/wp-content/plugins/easy-social-icons/easy-social-icons.php on line 874
I have tried to put other widgets in the header sidebar as a test and they all seem to work properly – but not the actual one that I want.
The undefined index PHP notice is a coding error in that plugin – you’ll have to report it to the developers. It basically means there’s a $title variable which doesn’t have a value, and they haven’t supplied a backup in case there’s no title.
This is most odd as I went to try out your suggestion this morning and the plugin worked perfectly yet it gave me all sorts of problems yesterday and even a friend who has quite a bit of PHP knowledge couldn’t get it to behave.
