Hi all, thank you in advance for taking the time to try and help me. I'm not web illiterate, but I am not a pro by any means. Therefore, please keep in mind that you may be speaking to a bit of a novice.
I recently upgraded to WordPress 3.5. I found that all the sidebars and the widgets contained therein that I created for custom pages had been removed.
For standard pages like "home page," they are still in tact. However, if I created a "Services" page and had a sidebar with widgets containing text, it is no longer part of the page.
When I go to widgets it shows approximately 50 inactive widgets now, and only the default sidebars.
When I try to create new sidebars with new pages it does not register.
I've already deactivated/activated all plugins as well.
