Solution: This too is a common error, you get when customizing your template. Just look out for the place where you modified the codes on your template.

XML error message: Open quote is expected for attribute "{1}" associated with an element type "href".

Solution: This is not a big problem as it looks in the error detail. The element type may be src or type or class or id or anything for that matter - not necessary that it should always be href. Well, it is pretty simple to solve this one! You just missed an a quotation mark some where in the code. Consider the example below.

<a href=''#">Example</a>

<a href=''source link"><img src="img link"/></a>

More than one widget was found with id: HTML1. Widget IDs should be unique.

Solution: This one is a most common template error. This occurs when the id name is found to the same at two instances. Just change the id name to solve this issue. For example, from id='HTML5' to id="HTML57" - a unique name that does not appear anywhere on your template.
