Support » Fixing WordPress » No Widget Drag and Drop

  • Two sites using same browser (Chrome), same computer, same host site, same WP version, same theme and same plugins. Older site from 3 years ago NEVER had drag and drop options in Widget area. Did not even know it was a featured until started working on new site. Have already tried to deactivate all plugins, but makes no difference.

    Any simple and clear suggestions to try?

    Thanks in advance.

    Please post links to both sites.

    older site without drag ‘n drop:
    newer site with drag ‘n drop:

    Both are works in progress, but that drag and drop makes widgets so much easier to manage.

    Thank you.

    I have waited for hours for a response from you. Is there something you need to do? Or is there some particular reason you requested the URLs (which I would still appreciate being removed) [Request denied].

    We’re alll volunteers around here; sometimes it takes a little time for a response.

    Really sounds like a theme problem; check the forums for your Weaver theme:

    These forums are for themes available in the WordPress theme directory at

    I realize you are volunteers and appreciate your support.

    Would you please remove the URL as it has no bearing on what is the cause of the problem? I am not sure why the other moderator asked for it, but it is not going to help remedy the issue. Thank you. 🙂

    @songdogtech, these requests of URL removal have already been discussed

    @gr8fl: we asked for the URLs to see what theme(s) you are using.

    @andrew, I responded to GR8FL asking about the drag and drop issues, not the URL removal, which I didn’t know was in another thread.

    Yes, and the moderator closed that topic leaving me no chance to respond.

    This is a harsh refusal to help me remedy a stupid mistake I made which only happened in response to the moderator’s request. I am not blaming anyone but me however, and apologize for not reading through all the rules. I hope you could make an exception at least this one time. I did not realize how vulnerable this would leave me as this site is wide open to the world.

    We all know now that putting this information out in no way helps to debug the problem as it the issue is not being to see the site from the outside as much as from within the WordPress Admin panel.

    I beg you to please reconsider and help me out. If it’s a matter of remuneration for the service, please let me know that too.

    Thank you.

    @songdogtech you said I was asked for the URLs to see what theme I was using, but I said in my initial post that both sites were using the same theme. And if anyone asked, I would have told you the theme name.

    I am getting really desperate that these URLs are out there. If I had been thinking (which clearly I was not), I would have at least put the word “dot” in before “com”.

    Please help me out.

    @gr8fl: The fact that they are the same theme doesn’t really matter; the point is what theme it is you are using. Some themes have javascript errors or other problems that prevent widget use; others are old versions that don’t implement widgets. I jumped in because @kmessinger hasn’t been working since yesterday.

    As pointed out by the other mods, editing posts is not done, except in extreme cases.
