Same issue, am newbie to wordpress (this version since last year), noticed the issue when trying to drop & drag widgets to no avail. Am using 4 different themes for my site through 3 other folders besides root. Installed wordpress correctly into separate folders with separate files and separate wp-config.php for each with separate databases.
Downloaded a new wordpress zip file, downloaded winzip just to be sure it wasn't a windows extract all files issue, unzipped, dragged & dropped to my ws_ftp uploader. Tried it on my xp home computer to be sure it wasn't a windows 7 issue (same, couldn't drop/drag widgets in xp either).
Instead of using ws_ftp auto upload this time, created folders within root itself and uploaded file by file according to ASCII & Binary to root only (no additional folders this time).
I've trouble shooted from my end all I can & I REALLY need some expertise here. Below is the coding in my php.ini file (which godaddy tech says is current php file)- how/what do I change to get wordpress 3.2.1 to work correctly? I have deleted wordpress so there's nothing to see right now at lindaloustarr.com - Breathe Possibility.
I went to php.net on the suggestion of godaddy tech and I am out of my league there . . .
Thank you so very much for your kind & speedy reply :>)
