    I just updated to V2.0 WYSIWYG Widgets and all the WYSIWYG widgets have disappeared off my site.
    Any suggestions on how to get them back?

    Hi randrboater,

    Yes, due to the huge changes I decided to drop backwards compatibility. Widgets will be removed after updating.

    You can get your content back by having a look at a cached version of your page, http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http:/yoursite.com .

    Another option is to install an older version of the plugin to back them up before updating. http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wysiwyg-widgets.1.2.zip

    Good luck, Danny.

    Argh... great.. I just updated all plugins on a client install and suddenly all WYSIWYG widgets are gone. I just downloaded the 1.2 version again, uploaded but the older widgets are still gone (not in Deactivated either)..

    And on top of that: Google Cache is a version of this morning (and I updated yesterday evening). So I'll have to get my client to fill the WYSIWYG widgets again...

    I see this mentioned quite a few times online but no fixes.
    This plugin acts like a page and the sharaholic icons and other plugins similar all show up under all these sidebar items I need.
    I have to be able to get rid of those icons. Please give us a solution.
    This should be a new comment, moving it now

    Hello, I'm on WordPress 3.8 running the Twenty Eleven theme. I don't know when it happened--I update my plugins and themes at irregular intervals, probably going no longer than a month, and when I do I update all--but about a week to 10 days ago, I was going to change a widget title value to the current month... and I pull up the dashboard/appearance/widget page then NOTTT! The configurable widget screen was gone.

    I believe a list of my current active widgets has been retained on the page in the boxes, but none of the boxes are draggable or editable. I no longer have a layout on the page of my sidebars so basically my widget configuration page has died. It's not functional. Most of the widgets are still functioning--except for the 'Cloud' widget--on my page http://brianrwright.com/CoffeeCoasterBlog/. Naturally, I would like to be able to change and edit my widgets.

    Can anyone help me?

    I'm not afraid to get into the code, but I never have and don't really know where it lives. [One of the occupational hazards of having a Web interface that is so intuitive and generally reliable that for most sites hardly does one ever need to tinker at the code level.]
