    Hello everyone,

    thank you form the big improvement you did from version 1.6 to 2.0.x

    Anyway we have few problems with existing sidebars after the update:

    1) No chance to allow a Theme sidebar to be replaced. The setting is not saved refreshing the page.

    2) In widget page, clicking on "Sidebar location", you can't define where you want to show a sidebar to appear, the criterias are hidden.

    using Firebug you can show the criteria and save them, no problem, but it's not the best :)

    None of these problems in a fresh installation

    Thank you very much!

    Hi @LeoPeo,

    thanks for taking the time to report this.
    We have tested the plugin but could not reproduce any of these issues on our installation.
    Do you see any javascript errors in Firebug?
    Or errors in the php error log?

    It seems that some of the existing settings in your database produce some unexpected errors.

    When you don't find any errors and are comfortable sharing your sidebar configuration then you can maybe run this SQL query and simply post the results into this thread:

    SELECT option_name, option_value FROM wp_options WHERE option_name IN ('cs_modifiable', 'cs_sidebars')

    Hi @Phillipp

    thank you for replying:
    I've seen there are thread similar to this in the last two days.

    Update: I've started from a fresh installation
    Wordpress 3.9.1
    Theme: Roots Theme
    Child Theme: My custom theme
    Plugin version: 2.0.7

    The problem is still there (even after 2.0.7 fix), but switching to Twenty-fourteen and creating connected Child Theme, everything seems to work, in both situation.

    Here there is my sidebar configuration:

    cs_modifiable

    a:10:{s:10:"modifiable";a:3:{i:0;s:17:"secondary-sidebar";i:1;s:15:"sidebar-primary";i:2;s:16:"top-sidebar-page";}s:16:"post_type_single";a:1:{s:4:"post";a:1:{s:15:"sidebar-primary";s:4:"cs-1";}}s:17:"post_type_archive";a:1:{s:4:"post";a:1:{s:15:"sidebar-primary";s:4:"cs-1";}}s:15:"category_single";a:0:{}s:16:"category_archive";a:0:{}s:4:"blog";a:0:{}s:4:"tags";a:0:{}s:7:"authors";a:0:{}s:6:"search";a:0:{}s:4:"date";a:0:{}}

    cs_sidebar

    a:1:{i:0;a:7:{s:2:"id";s:4:"cs-1";s:4:"name";s:14:"Sidebar - Post";s:11:"description";s:17:"Sidebar for posts";s:13:"before_widget";s:0:"";s:12:"after_widget";s:0:"";s:12:"before_title";s:0:"";s:11:"after_title";s:0:"";}}

    The datas are saved correctly, but the admin problem persist.
    I've noticed several Javascript notices, here there is the screenshot

    I hope you find this useful,
    Thank you very much again

    Hi everyone,
    we have exact the same problems:

    • Just upgraded from 1.6 to 2.0.7
    • i can mark a sitebar as replaceable, but this option is not saved
    • all criterias for sidebar locations are hidden, Firebug shows in div id="tab-arch" all sub-divs with style="display: none;"

    Btw: I found no JavaScript errors and the old (pre-1.6) configs (replacements) all work fine!
    Any ideas?

    Thank you very much!

    Hi @LeoPeo & @Hoechel,

    Sorry to hear of the problem you are having.

    1) No chance to allow a Theme sidebar to be replaced. The setting is not saved refreshing the page.

    i can mark a sitebar as replaceable, but this option is not save

    I could reproduce the same issue on my test site having WordPress 3.9.1 and Custom Sidebars plugin 2.0.7 therefore i have notified the plugin developer to fix it.

    The "Allow this sidebar to be replaced" setting seems to work very strangely. The settings don't seem to work for other than the first sidebar.

    The issue will be fixed shortly and the plugin update will be released soon.

    2) In widget page, clicking on "Sidebar location", you can't define where you want to show a sidebar to appear, the criterias are hidden.

    all criterias for sidebar locations are hidden, Firebug shows in div id="tab-arch" all sub-divs with style="display: none;"

    This is because it doesn't display until you select replaceable sidebar by selecting the option "Allow this sidebar to be replaced". This issue is dependent on the issue mentioned above and will be fixed soon.

    Cheers,
