    I've just lost all of the widgets on my side bar that were set up as pictures with links. Looked in the widgets menu and that widget seems to have also disappeared.

    Massively appreciate any help/ideas on this.

    Thank you

    The same thing happened to me too. I am using self hosted WP 3.4.3 and yesterday when I was trying to modify my widgets. Every time I added a widget another widget disappeared. Now only text widgets work and all other widgets disappeared. They are not deactivated, they just will not display in Chrome, Explorer, or Firefox.

    Put define('WP_DEBUG',true); in wp-config.php and see if you get any messages that might help.

    I got error messages that gave me some ideas.

    It says
    Notice: register_sidebar_widget is deprecated. Use wp_register_sidebar_widget() instead in /home/limere5/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 2638

    but I did not find the deprecated code

    The deprecated code is not where the message says it is. It is in the theme (probably functions.php) or in one of your plugins. That shouldn't cause your widgets to vanish though.

    Make sure that your theme and widgets are up to date. You may have a version conflict.

    Try disabling and re-enabling your plugins.

    Switch themes and see if the widgets work with Twenty-Eleven.

    Do you have an URL?
