Hi!

I’ve purchased the Deadline Theme a while back, my team and I likes it a lot except for the annoying – string(33) “String could not be parsed as XML ” – that shows in the Social Counter widget even with default values set. Three times of that line , one for each social account – rss, twitter, facebook.

I’ve coordinated with awesem, the devs of the theme and Martins had replied with what we can try with our server – http://www.concrete5.org/documentation/how-tos/editors/cant-connect-to-the-community/

Unfortunately, it didn’t work and we still have the error. I’ve sent them a message about this twice, asking for some more ideas we can try but received no reply for a couple of days now.

I hope someone can help me with this. If anyone has an idea I can try, I really appreciate it! Thank you!

Hello!

If you’re still getting this error it might be two things -

1. Feedburner API URL $feedurl=’https://feedburner.google.com/api/awareness/1.0/GetFeedData?uri='.$feedburner_username . ’’;

=> is not supported anymore / does not exist.

https://developers.google.com/feedburner/ = > The Google Feedburner APIs are no longer available. Thank you for your interest.

“The Feedburner API is no longer available. It was shut down on 20 October 2012 (more detail here, including the shutdown date.)”

2. Twitter API URL

Change > $twitter_url = ‘http://twitter.com/users/show.xml?screen_name='.$twitter_username . ’’;

To > $twitter_url = ‘https://api.twitter.com/1/users/show.xml?screen_name='.

Source: http://twitterapi.pbworks.com/w/page/22554755/Twitter%20REST%20API%20Method%3A%20users%C2%A0show

It worked for me, I hope this works for you, too.

Cheers!

Cool, I’m glad. This gave me a bit of a headache and was happy when it worked.

Yes, the file to edit is functions/widget-social-counter.php. Thanks for adding that, circlewebmedia.

Cheers!
