I'm new to WordPress and seem to have the same kind of trouble with the widgets as other users have: I cannot drag and rearrange them.
I have a fresh WordPress installation (3.3.1) without any plugin activated; in fact I even removed the two plugins already there (Akismet and Hello Dolly) for the time being, at least until everything works again as intended.
PHP 5.2.14 runs on the server where WordPress is being hosted.
I tried several OS and browser combinations to see whether the widget problem is OS and/or browser related. It does not seem to be the case as far as I can judge. The combinations I tried are:
- Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 9 and Firefox 9
- Mac OS X Lion with Safari and Firefox 9
I have already read many posts in the forum about this topic where users are advised to either reload parts of WordPress via FTP and/or deactivate plugins. Since I have a fresh installation, I does not seem to me to make any sense in my case to try this again.
I would be very happy if someone having been in the same situation has found a solution and tell me what to do!
Many thanks in advance.
