i have a google username with “.” and the plugin works perfectly for me, so this is not the case. At least with my 2.9.1 wordpress version.

I have “error loading google buzz data” too.

My username is “”, and I have set it without “”

Do you think it happened because of the “.” ?

Hello, and many thanks for your work.

I get the following, wherever I put the first line”” If it is in the “header” file, at the beginning. If it’s the header for a specific sidebar, it is shown at this point.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in /homez.139/mysite/www/wp-content/plugins/google-buzz-er/google-buzz-er.php on line 9

Do you know what is wrong from my side?

Many thanks
