Hi folks, this just cropped up today.  I'm getting the following text where my Twitter Widget should be:

Widget Twitter not found.
Root element is missing.

I've checked in App_Data, and all the correct XML data is there.  I've even tried to add a new Widget, same error (even in another Widget Zone).

Any thoughts?

No one has any ideas on this?  The Widget has all but died, I can not get it to work any longer.  It was working fine for quite some time, just died this week.

In the App_Data folder, there's a file named twitter_feeds.xml.  Delete that file.

Then re-start BE.  You can re-start BE by making any change to the web.config file (add a space, etc).

Ok, that was far too easy.  <laughs>  Guess I didn't check *all* of App_Data, huh?

I wonder what happened to it...?
