Problem solved in less than a day. AS USUAL! Honestly, I’ve never received this kind of support from a software company. WPHoot doesn’t brag about their outstanding support nearly as much as they should!

Plugin updated and all the widgets within it vanished without warning, removing them from my site. Now I’ve got to find new widgets plugins and reconfigure everything…
