Widget Data Moves To Another Widget After Deletion (2 posts)

    Something i noticed a while back when I was building a website for a customer was that when I had decided to remove a widget from the theme, after deleting the code from functions.php, what widgets I did have running had all moved their data down to the next widget.

    For example, before removal:

    Widget 1 - Text
    Widget 2 - Text
    Widget 3 - Calendar
    Widget 4 - Tag Cloud
    Widget 5 - Meta
    Widget 6 - Text

    Then I remove.. Calendar, it does something similar to this:

    Widget 1 - Text
    Widget 2 - Text
    Widget 3 - Tag Cloud
    Widget 4 - Meta
    Widget 5 -

    There is no way of removing widgets in the admin panel, and when i'm dealing in the upwards of 10 widgets + this can cause me a lot of frustration. Sure I simply go back and rearrange the widgets but this shouldn't be happening. The widgets are not setup correctly in the DB if this is happening.

    Anyone else noticed this? This is my 3rd time I've noticed this on 3 websites.

    Can you replicate this whilst using Twenty Eleven and no active plugins?
