Widget list is empty after upgrade to 3.2.1 (8 posts)

    Sorry for being soooo slooooow, but still I got a problem. After upgrading WP from 2.5 to 3.2.1 I cannot get my widgets running.

    On the admin widgets page I see no widgets to use. (I have all plugins deactivated). If I activate some 3rd party plugins that provide widgets, those widgets are available to be installed.

    The next point is that upon having no widgets to display the sidebar of my blog shows Search line, Archives and Meta (which I conside ARE widgets). Upon activating the plugins providing widgets, the default ones become missing.

    So the question is - how do I regain control over the widgets to be displayed? :)

    How did you upgrade? In a single step or via a series of smaller upgrades?

    I made a single-step upgrade, as the smaller instructions adviced, and now after I've read the Extended upgrading instructions I suppose I was very very wrong.
    Will try to update step-by-step and will report if that helps (fortunately I made backups).

    Good for you! With luck, the series of smaller upgrades will go smoothly.

    I have the same problem on my websites as well.

    www[dot]7Wgroup[dot]com and www[dot]iAmHipRock[dot]com are my most customized sites and now no widgets appear.

    How can I get my widgets back soon?

    Thanks a lot!

    how do you do the upgrade in 'little steps'.? don't want to have to redo all widgets again. this is one reason I hate to upgrade. it takes so much time to get all your tweaks and customizations back. sometimes days.
    got two diff installs and one very old theme that I just love.
    Should I try it out in my MAMP first? got newer MacBook, as my Powerbook died. and haven't gotten far with the MAMP yet.

    Wow, esmi. that's just as much work as just doing all the tweaks after an automatic upgrade. I got lost just reading it.thanks anyway.
