error msg on custom dashboard widget

I am getting the following error message in a Custom Dashboard Widget I created:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/content/p/m/p/pmp47/html/patriotstarus/wp-content/plugins/custom-content-dashboard-widget/custom-content-dashboard-widget.php(57) : eval()’d code on line 1

Also, does Custom Dashboard Widget publish automatically to all blogs/sites within the network? I am hoping it does or that you can create one that does as I am trying to give guidance to editors and writers.

    Hi y3kgeek,

    The widget is indeed published throughout your network, it’s made available to all users on all dashboards by default.

    As Jack mentioned, the error you’re receiving seems to do with the content you’ve posted and I’m sure we can assist with that if you’d like to post that code here.

    1. Error Message:

    This is what I posted in the widget:

    1. Customize SEO Settings

    When you log into your Dashboard, you’ll see a red alert msg at the top reminding you to activate your SEO Settings. Click on the admin link in that message and add the following:

    Title: Patriot Star News – Truth & Liberty | YOUR SITE TITLE

    Description: YOUR BRIEF DESCRIPTION. Patriot Star News Network. Submit news releases and tips.

    2. Network Wide Posting:

    I installed/actived the plugin in my Network Admin. I could not find any place in Network Admin where I could configure the widget. I did find it in my Site Admin for Right now just a few, but soon will have several (sub) sites. It is going to be a tedious pain to have to configure a widget for each sub site. So how do I set it so the widget appears across the network and all sub sites? On for example,, etc.
