  • After update to 2.6 display options not realized in admin widgets display..?..

    However the settings from the previous version are still active…widgets are being hid and shown as expected…previous settings are enforce.

    Also deactivated and reactivated plugin to no avail.

    Love the plugin, this is a heads up…

    Thanks…

    Display Widgets

    Hi,

    please see if this works:

    1. add any widget to your sidebar
    2. click the SAVE button
    3. the display options should appear soon after you save
    4. check the options/pages you like
    5. save again

    Let us know.

    Yes it works fine after save…

    Great, thanks!

    I had the exact same issue and and saving put the display options back on. FYI

    I had this issue as well. Yes, when I save the widget the Show / Hide options reappear. However when I leave the widgets page and come back they are missing again, or if I simply refresh the page they are missing.

    Hi displaywidget,

    Confirming viable work-around by save button selection.

    Big relief and Thanks! for your prompt response 🙂

    You’re very welcome!

    Hi @displaywidget .. curious, i assume you will be working on and releasing a fix for this shortly? Or will this be considered a feature whereby one will have to click save each time to reveal the options? Sorry, i just wasn’t sure which way you were preferring from this conversation.

    Same issue here since I updated plugin to 2.8 on June 21st 2017. Plugin still works (hides widgets), but the checkboxes in each widget to show or hide on site pages, disappeared.

    Also, the plugin doesn’t seem to be available anymore on WP’s plugins repository.

    btw, your workaround worked just fine, thanks!

    1. add any widget to your sidebar
    2. click the SAVE button
    3. the display options should appear soon after you save
    4. check the options/pages you like
    5. save again

    You can upgrade to a forked version of the plugin: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/upgrading-the-display-widgets-plugin-to-the-display-widgets-seo-plus-plugin/

    Works the same as the old 2.05 version with bug fixes and new widget logic features.

    @seo-dave, I understand that you want to drive traffic to your plugin by bashing mine, but let’s try to work together instead of pointing fingers and blaming others, can we? I decided to take over this plugin simply because I used for a while, and seeing that the original developer was not updating it anymore made me think about the potential that this feature could have, and how it could be improved. I did it with no short term plan to make any money, it’s basically just the same passion that drives thousands of developers around the world to contribute to the open source community. So, with this in mind, can we collaborate and work together on improving the plugin instead of doing what you’re doing? Thank you!
