Works with this fix

If you hover your mouse to the right of the + symbol it will work and duplicate… But since I was designing this website for a client I had to find a fix so they could click the actual + symbol.

I ended up fixing this issue by adding some CSS so now you can hover over the actual + symbol.

Here’s the fix.

add this to your functions.php. Minor CSS fixes it.

function custom_admin_css() {
   echo '<style type="text/css">
.widget-top a.widget-action, .widget-top a.widget-action:hover {
    padding: 1px;
    display: inline-block;
}         </style>';
}

add_action('admin_head', 'custom_admin_css');

Something went wrong

This plugin worked great, but now when I add a widget to a sidebar for the first time it gets added twice and when I click on the plus sign it just opens the widgets settings… :-/

Doesn't work

As the prior reviewer said
“I have the + next to all widgets, but clicking that just opens up the widget settings.”

Worked for awhile, very useful!

Worked great, but then along the way now it does not. I have the + next to all widgets, but clicking that just opens up the widget settings. Not sure what’s going on, but would give this 5*s if it work would again 🙂 cheers,
