[Plugin: Dynamic Widgets] Causes Text Widgets to Collapse on Drop

  • With Dynamic Widgets activated, dropping a vanilla text widget onto any sidebar causes the widget to briefly open for editing, then immediately close, preventing the ability to add text. The only thing displayed on the text widget is “Delete” and “Close”. This is also the case for the “Enhanced Text Widget”.

  • UPDATE – It appears that this is occurring with many other widgets when Dynamic Widgets is installed and running.

    THERE ARE TWO WORK-AROUNDS…

    1. On the “Screen Options” tab on the Widgets admin page, click the “Enable Accessibility Mode” link – now the widget that’s collapsing can be edited in a separate screen.

    2. (Easy) Just close-out the Widgets page by visiting the Dashboard or some other admin screen, when you come back to the Widgets page, the problem widget now works fine.

    Just for the record, I have this problem too. I’m using Randy’s workaround #2.

    Hello Randy,
    You should also have a Save button when you drop a widget into the sidebar. Hit that button and you’re good to go.

    However, this is a bug of course. Therefor I fixed it in the latest development version.

    Awesome, thank you. None of this is a problem for using this great plugin, it was just a minor inconvenience. Very nice work.
