[resolved] WYSIWYG Widgets not working, even with all other plugins de-activated. (21 posts)

    Hi there,

    This plugin sounds like exactly what I need! But unfortunately, even with all other plugins deactivated, I cannot get it to work at all.

    I have also tried deactivating and reactivating this plugin, removing and re-adding the existing widgets, as well as creating new ones.

    The site (http://www.ccc.org.uk/wordpress/) uses a custom Hybrid child theme. I installed the plugin through the WordPress backend (not FTP).

    Any ideas?! Thanks.

    Sorry, I realise that was a bit vague...

    My exact problem:

    - Visual tab is greyed out
    - After inserting image, HTML tab still empty (but when I send to widget, it is there in a p tag)
    - Typing into the HTML tab and sending to widget doesn't do anything, nor does adding a link etc etc.
    - Tried in Firefox and Chrome

    Thanks,
    Caroline

    Further to my monologue...

    It works sometimes, but not always! Refreshing the backend (/wp-admin/widgets.php) seems to help.

    We are seeing the same problem with WordPress 3.2.1 and both 1.0.7 and 1.0.6 of the plugin.

    I just downloaded it and I get the popup but when I click on Send to Widget, nothing appears. Any ideas?

    I have tested this out there appears to be some issue between the parsing of java script, for successive instantiation, not sure of the exact issue, tested in crome, safari, firefox, IE, different issues for all those browsers, too many to list, I like the way the editor is presented, (modal dialog) it just sadly is not working.

    Hi all,

    Sorry for the late response but I just wanted to give you a quick heads up that I've just updated WYSIWYG Widgets to version 1.1, which adresses most of the known issues.

    Give it a try and let me know what you think!

    Kind regards,

    Hi Danny,

    I just want to say what your plugin offers should be built-in to WordPress. These latest changes show good improvement. Thanks for the update!

    Hi Danny, thanks for updating the plugin!

    I can confirm that it is almost working for me.

    The only problem I have come across is that when I add a link and select 'open in a new window/tab' then hit 'Add link', the page refreshes and I lose my widget content.

    Hi CarolineElisa,

    Hmm, strange. I haven't experienced that issue so far. Could you please provide me with some more details so I can replicate the bug.

    - What browser are you running (+ version)?
    - Which version of WP?
    - How many WYSIWYG Widgets were opened (in other words: how many visual editors where there on your sidebar when this problem happened)

    It would be wonderful if you could answer the above questions so I can replicate and fix the bug. :)

    Thanks for the rapid response!

    - Firefox 8 for Mac
    - WP 3.2.1
    - I have 3 WYSIWYG widgets, with just 1 open

    To clarify, it happens when I add a second link in a widget. The first time is fine.

    Thanks, didn't read well enough before posting but figured it out shortly after. Just fixed it, WYSIWYG Widgets version 1.1.1 should be in the WP Repository in a few minutes!

    Let me know if it works for you too. :)

    The dialogue box that opens to insert/edit a link does not work (box doesn't fully load). Sorry - but great idea.

    @jskspirit - obviously this only applies to you, so a little more details on your setup would be helpful. Which version of WordPress, which browser, actions to replicate the error etc..

    Thanks for writing. WordPress 3.2.1 , IE 8. Reinstalled the plug-in again (3rd time). Tried inserting a link, but the same thing occurred as before: the insert/edit dialog box wouldn't display with all the fields, boxes. I tried re-selecting the text to be linked, and now sometimes the dialog box opens and displays corrrectly and sometimes not.

    So I just tried out the latest version for wp 3.3.1 and it works in firefox 11.0 but is broken in chrome 18.0+... No idea about explorer though...

    I wanted to add that I just solved this problem by making sure the full URL was in site_home - in my case it couldn't find the proper files because all the customer had in their site_home was http: and not the full URI, a la http://domain.com

    Hope this helps somebody.
