Item-config items don´t show up in habmin

Short story:
Items from /etc/openhab2/items/home.items doesn´t show up in HABmin.
Before I broke something I could use the Number and String items in HABmin but not anymore, and any change made to the items-file isn´t in HABmin.

Long story:
Im trying to config a new openhabian install from scratch.
First I had problems with GPIO pins in PaperUI, can´t discover any pins but realized that if I did a BasicUI config I could control my outputs (haven´t setup any inputs yet).
After some troubleshooting I got my SPI MPC3008 to work but only in PaperUI.
Somewhere between then and now I think I broke something because my items from my items-file dissapeared from HABmin, the changes I make to the items-file doesn´t show up in HABmin (and has never been seen in PaperUI) I can only se PaperUI things in HABmin.
I haven´t learned how to config the MPC3008 and OneWireGPIO in config-files.

The GPIO Binding is a 1.x version binding. Beyond installation, you can’t do anything with 1.x bindings in PaperUI. No discovery, no configuration, you can’t even configure an Item to use them in PaperUI.

Habmin is basically unmaintained. I’m not sure I would use it to diagnose problems with OH configs. There is no way to tell whether the problem is just that that part of HABmin is no longer working or not.

Errors in the logs?

Looking at your .items file shows that everything after “//Variable” is using the wrong types of quotes. That would prevent the .items file from loading and it would generate errors in the log.

Thank you!
I have been starring at this file to long that I missed it. It was a copy/paste line from this forum and because I tried to find a solution to another problem I just ignored these lines completely.
I fixed that and also found another typo (Contact channel23 twice).

Im making a “smart-caravan” and using a Raspbery LCD and HABpanel (another typo but in this post, it´s HABpanel, not HABmin) to control things with the GPIO. Cheap solution, maybe it won´t work and I ditch the project :blush:
