My site is http://www.oneatatimefoundation.org.au. It uses a child theme containign a few minor mods on the 220.127.116.11 version of the responsive theme.
I recently had an issue after I updated to responsive version 18.104.22.168. Basically the three widgets on the front page reverted to the default text and formatting, and the Appearance/Widgets option disappeared from my dashboard. I tried deactivating all my plugins (some of which had also recently updated), but this didn't solve the problem. I then switched to the twentyten theme and the Appearance/Widgets option returned to the dashboard.
Fortunatly I had a copy of the 22.214.171.124 version held locally so I was able to switch back. Again the Appearance/Widgets option was present and I was able to restore the widgets to how they were.
Does anyone have any idea why this happened, and how I can update to the latest version of Responsive without losing my widgets?
Thanks in advance for any help.
