Widget Fixer

Widget-fixer fixes your widgets after you change to a new siteurl.

How do I get started?

It is highly recommended that you take a backup of your database before using this plugin.

What does this plugin do?

Widget-fixer is very basic and really does only one thing.
It recalculates the string lengths of the widget strings and updates the relevant numbers in the database so that your widgets will work again.

Under what circumstances would you use this plugin?

If you update your URLs and apply the updated URLs directly to the database, then any widgets with updated URLs will need to be fixed. This plugin fixes those widgets for you so that you do not need to redo your work.

What if the plugin does not work?

There is still hope. Sometimes WordPress removes the corrupted portions of code from the database when it loads. If the plugin fails to fix your widgets, you should try to run this from the command-line instead. There is a special way to do this. You should use the widget-fixer-cli.php file as follows. 1. Stop your site. 2. Restore your database. 3. Run: php -q widget-fixer-cli.php /var/www/html/wp-config.php

Replace the "/var/www/html/" with the actual path to your wp-config.php file. This method is generally quite reliable and successful.

Is this supported?

No, this is a free plugin that is intended to be used at your own risk.
