    podpress 8.8.10.12 breaks widgets sitewide on wordpress 3.3

    you can drag and drop widgets, but they are not saved and do not display in the site public pages, neither they are saved in their position in the relevant sidebars.

    disabling the plugin resolves the issue

    Thank you for this report!

    There is a problem which occurs with 8.8.10.12 and WP 3.3. But it seems that it occurs only if you modify (add a new one, remove one, etc.) your sidebars. That is why I haven't noticed the problem myself during or after the upgrade.

    However, I have already a pretty good idea of what the source of the problem is. I will report back as soon as I can tell you more.

    Thanks,
    Tim

    I will release an update in the next days. But until the next version is ready you may fix this problem by modifying one line in one .js file.
    In the file /wp-content/plugins/podpress/js/jquery/podpress_jquery_ui_widgetssettings.js
    you will find the line (27):

    var podpress_a_widget_id = ui.item.find('a.widget-action').closest('div.widget').attr('id');

    Replace that with:

    var podpress_a_widget_id = ui.item.find('div.widget-inside > form > input.widget-id').val();

    Regards,
    Tim

    I am having the same trouble.

    Updated WP to 3.3.1 this morning.. same issue. When I drag either the player widget or the button widget onto a sidebar and refresh the widget page, the widget doesn't "stick"

    using podpress 8.8.10.12

    using a multi-site environment. I loaded this plugin on a blank test site and the issue followed. An older site which already had the widget running prior to WP 3.3 is still working.

    I wish I had found this post 3 hours ago. After spending the entire morning trying to figure out why I can no longer add widgets after upgrading to WordPress 3.3.1 I found that Podpress was the problem. I wasn't able to create any new Widgets, not even a text widget.

    I have deactivated the plugin and I now have functionality restored to my widgets.

    Same problem, and this poses a big issue for some of my sites ... I'm a podcaster and run two different sites that rely in Podpress to distribute my content. Right now, I have to disable the plugin, change my sidebar, and then reactivate the plugin to get it to work.

    An update to fix this problem would be fantastic!

    FINALLY! The fix provided above worked for me! I've been deactivating the plugin, then adding widgets, then reactivating the plugin for 2 weeks now! lol

    @peeld: It would be great if could give some more information.

    • Please, open the widgets page of your blog in your browser
    • open the Error Console of the browser (you can find it in a sub menu like Web Developer or Develop)
    • clear the console
    • reload the widgets page

    If if your see errors then please report them here.
    If you see no error message then try to change the position of the widget or add a different one and see whether the console shows errors now. If the error messages are long then consider using a pastebin service.

    Please, describe what you have done to create the error.

    It is also interesting know whether you are using a theme or a plugin which customizes the widgets page in a certain way?
