RFRiverdashboard + the wire 1.7.10 problem

Hello! I've recently updated my elgg, (successfulyl after a long trial) and have been using the RF river dashboard, previously the_wire was working fine in correspondance to this but now it keeps giving me the "i'm sorry, you need to actually type something" error echo and sending me to the wires actual tool page where it *can* be updated. Do you guys know of any reason why it wouldnt accept the text from the dashboard as "real"?
