Custom sidebars
[resolved] Impossible to drag sidebars with many widgets (8 posts)

    There are major issues with sidebars containing a lot of widgets (100+)

    The first ~30 widgets work correctly, but the widgets further down are not draggable, and sometimes even change the widget order randomly when you attempt to drag them.

    Tried all three major browsers (IE, FF, Chrome) without success.

    I have made a short screencast showing the issues:

    Unfortunately, this sort of instability scares away a lot of users. Hope this can be fixed.

    Hi @khromov

    Do you see the same instability without Custom Sidebars active?

    I can't see 100 widgets working or even being necessary in any situation to be honest. Have you tested this without Custom Sidebars active previously?

    I don't really fancy adding 100+ widgets to my sidebar to test this so I'll take your word for it, once we have more information I'll ask the developer what he thinks.

    Hi @michael-copestake

    Yes, the default widget area handles drag and drop fine aven with a lot of widgets.

    The use case is a multilingual site. (Using WPML)
    For every widget we actually need six of them (one for every site language.)

    You could probably drag 100 empty text widgets into a sidebar in a couple of minutes. :)

    Anyway, if the plugin can't handle that many widgets, make a hard limit of 30 widgets per area or something.

    I hope you agree that the plugin should not randomly reorder my widgets in any case.

    How does it work with 60 widgets? You said that the first 30 and the last few work.

    Does the problem only occur when you get over 6 if this is the case? Or do you start having issues when you hit 30 widgets?

    Hey there.

    We haven't heard from you in awhile, so I just wanted to check in to make sure all was good.

    This thread was marked resolved, but please, if you still need help then just respond and open it back up. We can then take it from there. :)

    It's not resolved - I just haven't been using this plugin because it screwed up my widgets.

    You have clear steps to reproduce the issue if you actually want to fix this.
