I had a temporary wordpress install located on my own server while we were setting up hosting for a client. We were using the responsive template and added two widgets to the Left Sidebar - a links widget and a text widget.
I just transferred the database and the files over to the new server, updated the web config and .htaccess files with the new settings and used this script to update the links to the new domain. Everything is working great EXCEPT for one thing - I can't seem to update or delete the existing widgets, nor am I able to add new ones.
I wanted to update the text widget with a small text change, but when I go to save, the animated saving gif just circles and circles, and the database never updates. Same thing happens if you try to delete, or if you try to add a new widget - the circle just keeps circling, never to resolve.
I've resolved the issue temporarily by making the necessary update directly in the database, but this is only a stop-gap measure. What's going on and how can I fix it?
