Ever had a widget get stuck in a particular sidebar or widget area? Are your widgets missing when you switch themes?
This plugin will remove all widgets, setting everything back to the factory settings.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
- Go to Appearance > Widgets Reset to reset your widgets.
More detailed instructions are included in the plugin’s
readme.html file. It is important to note that this will completely remove all widgets.
- Why was this plugin created?
When switching themes, widgets sometimes get “stuck” in the old theme’s sidebars/widget areas. This plugin allows you to quickly and easily reset your widgets.
- Will my widget information be saved?
No. No. No.
I can’t stress enough that this completely resets everything. So, if you have some important information saved in something like a text widget, you better save it before resetting your widgets.
In short, don’t complain if you reset your widgets and lose information that you have been told to save.
