[resolved] Cannot disable accessibility mode on widgets page! (3 posts)

    Hi guys,

    I enabled the accessibility mode on widgets page through screen options but now I want to disable it and get back to the drag-and-drop state. Clicking screen options again wont give me any options anymore, so how can I do it?

    If I click the screen options the page address changes from .../widgets.php to .../widgets.php#screen-options-wrap, but no toggle to change the settings appear.
    On other menus the screen options work normally.

    Please help me get back on track and dragging!

    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 default 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 all files & folders - except the wp-content folder and wp-config.php & root .htaccess files - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Thanks for help,

    changing back to default theme solved the problem.

    After the change I was able to access screen option and change disable the accessibility mode and then change back to my preferred theme.

    Hope this thread helps others with the same problem!
