[solved] Custom Block lets whole sidebar disappear on OJS multi journal main page

We upgraded from 2.4.8 to OJS When I add a custom block to the side bar of the main page of our multi journal installation, the whole sidebar disappears. When I remove the custom block, the sidebar reappears and contains the remaining default blocks. This happens only on the main page. Adding custom blocks to the side bar of the single journal pages works just fine. I did not have these problems with our 3.1 test system. Any suggestions or similar experiences?

Hi @heike_riegler,

Have a look at Site-wide custom blocks encounter fatal error · Issue #32 · pkp/customBlockManager · GitHub, and try the patch there.
