Support » Fixing WordPress » New Blog on WP 2.5 with disappearing Sidebar

  • Hi All,

    Set up a new blog on WP 2.5. Went in and set up the sidebar widgets by dragging/dropping, etc. Went to the site, looked great. A few days later, the sidebar had reverted back to the default as if there were no sidebar widgets added. I logged into the admin and lo and behold, all of the widgets were gone.

    As this has happened twice over 2 weeks, I’m sure this must be an on-going thread about this… would be great if someone can point me in the right direction. Searching turned up nothing similar.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Forgot to mention… using the WP 2.5 default theme although I’ve made CSS changes. Nothing was touched in the actual PHP files though.

    Hi, I had exactly the same problem. I solved it that way:

    Go to phpMyAdmin and choose your database. Choose table wp_options. This table is not marked as crashed, but it is probably damaged! Go to operations and click “repair”. The table will be repaired.

    It worked for me. After that I could insert the widgets again.

    Since I’ve installed wp 2.5, tables of my database crashed about 5 or 6 times (and I installed it 5 days ago!!) I had never had this problem with wp 2.3 -.-
