Hi Oliver

Thank you for the detailed error report and screen shots.

It looks as though there is a problem with the Social Feed Widget from Widgetbox. I have checked the forum on Social Feed and see that another user has reported a similar error.

This is one of the third-party widgets we offer on Yola. However, we are not able to offer support when things go wrong with these widgets as we do not have the first-hand information to do so. For more information and help, you may contact the Widgetbox Community.

I hope this helps!
