Support » Plugin: Widget Content Blocks » [Plugin: WYSIWYG Widgets] I got it to work

  • Resolved MaureenT


    At first, I thought this was completely broken, but then, by accident, I discovered that it would work if I did one simple thing. After placing the widget where I wanted it in Appearances > Widgets, I refreshed the page, and it started working. I was able to enter content, use the TinyMCE buttons, and save my changes.

    The one remaining problem is that I also use Ultimate TinyMCE, so I have additional buttons that this cuts off. I had to go into the Ultimate TinyMCE controls and drop those buttons down to a third line so that they’d show in this. It would be nice if the widget box could be sized horizontally, but at least I got it working.

  • It works for me too after a page refresh.
    Thanks for the tip, Maureen.

    I hope the developer will update it soon so that it can work out of the box…

    I can type after the refresh, but when I save the widget, the text disappears and doesn’t show up on my page. Great idea, I’d love to see it working (WP 3.4, WYSIWYG Widgets 1.2).

    I’m using WP 3.5, WYSIWYG Widgets 1.2 and Ultimate TinyMCE 3.9 and I found out how to make it work (it’s weird):

    1. Insert the WYSIWYG widget to the sidebar (don’t type anything yet)
    2. Press Save
    3. Reload the Widgets page
    4. Type whatever text and format you want in the WYSIWYG widget using the visual editor, but don’t save it yet
    5. Switch from the Visual editor to the Text editor
    6. While in the Text editor mode, press Save

    This works for me.

    Hi all,

    I did a total rewrite of WYSIWYG Widgets and changed the way the plugin acts for better compatibility across browsers and platforms.

    Please back-up your existing widgets before updating to version 2.0 because they will be deleted after updating. The benefits of updating to version 2.0 are countless though. Try it and let me know if that worked for you. 🙂
