[resolved] WordPress database error - Help! (6 posts)

    My site - http://www.thechocolatereview.net/ - uses the latest version of WordPress, I was just trying to sort out my widgets when I realised that I couldn't move any of them, it instead just selected the text like I was going to copy and paste, I then just clicked "Save Changes" anyway for some stupid reason, and it's reset all my widgets to the default layout and I can't put any of them back.

    I also have this message at the bottom of my sidebar - "WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1]"

    I have no idea what this means or what to do, and I'm the least tech-savvy person around. Is anyone able to help?

    Hmm...changed the theme, still not letting me drag and drop widgets. Tried using both Internet Explorer and Firefox and neither are allowing it Any help there?

    The theme being incompatible was just a fix for the mysql error.

    Check your server logs for clues about why you aren't able to use your widgets. Also try clearing your cache and logging out and back in.

    Clearing the cache did the job. Thanks a lot, you've done me a big favour. :)
