Widget page nonfunctioning in WP 3.5.1 (10 posts)

    Since about a week, I have noticed that my widgets page in the dashboard is no longer functioning. Meaning, it seems like it 'freezes' the overall system. Refresh of the browser window has no effect, nor does closing the window and starting a new instance. Switching from widgets to another dashboard function is not possible, the screen simply does not react.

    I have already gone through de-activating all plug-ins and re-activating selectively, with no noticeable difference. Even when all plug-ins are de-activated, the widget page still freezes.

    Not sure what to do other than to take the site down and reinstalling WP? Bad timing, because I have an event taking place in 2 weeks that I am actively trying to promote the website content for.

    Probably a conflict with your theme. Perhaps they've released an update?

    Looks like they have, wasn't a problem before, but possibly now that I have upgraded to 3.5.x it could be.

    I have not had this problem until 3.5. I downgraded back to 3.4.2. I just tried 3.5.1 and am still having this problem!!!! This can't be something in everyones site to never have this happen and then have it after upgrading. HELP!!!!! I'm not sure what to do.

    The forum is split into sections, with each forum having its own one-line description on the front page. Please try to choose the most suitable section for your new topic, and please post your topic in only one section. Multi posting is frowned upon. Duplicate postings will be closed or might be deleted. Posting your own topic is smiled upon. Unless you're having 100% without any doubts or variation, the exact same problem, do not post in someone else's thread. Start your own topic.

    No where do I see anything that says I CAN"T post in the same topic. This in fact IS the same issue as the OP and about 1,000+ other users.

    How about tracking the issue that the widgets freeze in 3.5.X instead of tracking where my posts are and giving me smack for it.!!!

    Are you using the same version of WordPress on the same physical server hosted by the same hosts with the same plugins, theme & configurations as the original poster?

    No? Then your problem - despite any similarity in symptoms - is likely to be completely different. So please help us to help you and post a new topic when we ask you to.

    I'm having this issue as well and it is really hindering our site's progress configuring our new theme. Same issue with our current theme and new theme. This really needs a fix!
