[Plugin: Rich Text Widget] Upgrading to v1.0 erases existing rich text widgets

    So the widget was broken before with WP v3.1 and have been waiting for a newer version to come out. Upgraded to Rich text widget v1 today and lost all of my existing rich text widgets in place. Now I get to spend the next few hours remembering what was in there and rewriting them. Also the wysiwyg still does not work. I’m done with this widget.

    I’m really sorry, I thought nobody use it cause it’s broken since a long time with new versions of wordpress. So I neglected compatibility with old version when i completely rewrote the plugin.

    you could have your data recovered by reinstalling the old one :

    I did install the old one to attempt a recovery of the data and it did not restore the original rich text widget content 🙁

    I had the same problem as surfpole8. I was able to recover my sidebar content by reverting to the older version of the plugin as well as connecting to a new DB (luckily I had a recent backup to import).

    So is there any way I can upgrade without loosing my old widgets? Thank you in advance for any hint

    The only way is to backup the content of your old widgets.
