    Vancouver, we have a problem!

    1
    If I add an image widget with the Widgets Page (wp-admin/widgets.php) nothing happens.

    2
    If I add the same image widget with the Customizer (wp-admin/customize.php) the widget is visible in the front end.
    But not on the widgets page (wp-admin/widgets.php).
    That’s fine, but:

    3
    It is not possible to switch off the footer widget on certain pages/posts.
    (Document settings / Footer Widgets / 0 Widgets.)
    That’s the problem.

    4
    I tried a workaround with a GP Layout Element.
    (Footer Widgets: 0 Widgets).
    Same.

    I haven’t the slightest idea what to do.

    Hint: child theme in place.

    Hi there,

    #1 and #2 sounds like something is broken with WordPress itself. Does the issue remain if you deactivate all of your plugins?

    For #3 and #4, do you have any functions in your child theme at all?

    Any other Layout Elements?

    Jesus! I broke WP! Woah!

    #1 and #2
    Definitely. Even deactivated GP Premium. No change.

    #3 and #4
    Yup. This one:

    function generatepress_child_enqueue_scripts() {
    	if ( is_rtl() ) {
    		wp_enqueue_style( 'generatepress-rtl', trailingslashit( get_template_directory_uri() ) . 'rtl.css' );
    	}
    }
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'generatepress_child_enqueue_scripts', 100 );

    Other Layout Elements:
    Two Hooks, one injecting Faviconcode in the HTML-Head, the other one injecting HTML after header content.

    Hmmm.

    1. What about if you use a standard Twenty-x theme?

    2. When you save the 0 Widgets option and refresh the page in the backend, is the 0 Widgets option still checked?

    Answers to 1. + 2.

    1. Switched to Twenty Twenty. No change. But I see suddenly a leftover footer widget from the original theme, which I replaced with GP. This was not shown with GP, not in the Customizer, not in the Widgets page.

    Next, I switched back to GP, Widget gone. I used the Twenty Twenty Theme and deleted the leftover widget. Went back to GP. No change with the footer widget.

    But then I saw an image widget in the Header is missing.

    After I added the image widget withe customizer again, I get
    Warning: Illegal string offset "width" in /wp-includes/media.php on line 1100
    Warning: Illegal string offset "height" in /wp-includes/media.php on line 1101

    Lines 1097 to 1101:

    function _wp_get_image_size_from_meta( $size_name, $image_meta ) {
    	if ( $size_name === 'full' ) {
    		return array(
    			absint( $image_meta['width'] ),
    			absint( $image_meta['height'] ),

    The image is a SVG with width and height properties set.
    This error does not show up in the Customizer.

    2. Yes.

    Thanks for the hint to change the theme. Something low level seems to be broken.
    That’s one beer for you, Tom.
    Hint: do not drink and breastfeed your baby.

    Since this is a live environment, I am going to restore a backup and install a site clone to investigate this.

    Any idea where to start? I already checked and optimized the database.

    Hi there,

    1. What if you upload a PNG image? Same error?

    2. Any chance you can create a staging server and send me temp login details? I’ll have to dig a little deeper to see what’s going on here. If so, you can send them through our form here: https://generatepress.com/contact – be sure to mention this topic.

    The problem is sitting in front of the computer. Although I have been working with GP for 4 years, I confused Footer Bar Widget with Footer Widget. Sorry.
