Well done, thanks. It's nice to have the manual with a decent live-search. Only a little hint where to install the languages (or at least the shorts for en= english, de= german, ...) would be nice. Anyway, I figured it out in seconds, so not that important.

Thanks again, great widget.

This widget is quite simply awesome. Everything is well integrated, and having a local version of the PHP manual is a major plus, especially when I am on the road and having internet access is questionable.
It works like a charm, and I have yet to find it lacking in any respect. The favorites list is especially handy, because I always forget the format for the same few functions.
The cheat sheets are also a major plus, and the date formatter is sheer genius.
Keep up the good work!

I can confirm the bug is fixed.

The widget is a little sluggish in terms of responsiveness, but it certainly works as advertised.

I get the same problem (with my own home directory name, of course).

I highly recommend PHPfi (search on MacUpdate for "php function index"). It is snappy, cleanly designed, and free for non-profit users. "Freelancers" pay only $8.50 and "Business Users" only $16.50. I'm not affiliated with the developer; I'm just a happy user (or at least I was when I was doing PHP work).

As I mention in the FAQ, I also am a (paid!) user of PHPfi. It's a great app! This widget serves a similar purpose. It's just a different vector for getting at the information. That, plus it doesn't take up space in the Dock. One big advantage of PHPfi is you can use AppleScript to jump from BBEdit straight to a particular function in PHPfi. If there's a way to do the same thing in PHPfr, I'd like to know!

Cool. I once wrote a freeware product while being a happy user of a similar product, so I know where you're coming from. I haven't done anything with either AppleScript or widgets, though, so I'm afraid I can't help you there.

$ 8.50 - hmm ... pale in comparison.

looks nice, but I have problem using it after install.

I'm aware of this problem and am working on a fix. In the meantime, flip the widget over and select English as your preferred language and the widget should work as expected.
