[Resolved] Admin widgets page no longer working

  • My widgets screen in admin seems to have gone weird. I can’t work out what’s going on. The list of active sidebar widgets isn’t listed and I can’t move any of the other widgets around.

    Here’s a screenshot of it

    Grateful for any help!

  • I should add I’ve tried reinstalling the latest version update and copied in the latest version of wp-admin but it’s made no difference

    I have multiple sites. The 3.0 sites don’t have the problem, but the 3.1 sites do. They are on different hosts, and some are upgrades from 3.0 to 3.1, while two others are brand new installations.

    I can modify the widgets, and use drag/drop, in Firefox. I get inconsistent and sometimes strange results from Chrome, IE7 & IE8.

    You might try Firefox until somebody gets around to diagnosing and/or fixing this!

    I am using firefox and I tried in IE and it doesn’t work there either!

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    – increasing the memory available to PHP:

    Thanks for the suggestions, but I have tried just about every combination I could think of, including a fresh install, with twenty ten and no active plugins. The only consistent issue seems to be wordpress 3.1.1 with a non-firefox browser.

    I completely wrecked my site for about an hour but overwrote all my basic wordpress files with the latest version…it make no difference. Then I disabled all the plugins as esmi said and it worked. I slowly added them all back one by one and it worked. After enabling them all it worked! How weird but who cares, it’s fixed!
