  • Resolved ithacaindy


    For the past couple builds, the widget area in the admin screen has vanished. Although the theme has custom sidebar areas registered, there are no areas available to place widgets into. This happens with all themes, including the WordPress defaults.

    Environment: Chrome on Mac, running OSX 10.7.5

  • Can you replicate the problem using the Twenty Eleven theme with all plugins deactivated?

    It was a plugin issue. I deactivated all plugins and the widgets returned. I’ll reenabled each plugin until the problem reappears and report back which plugin is causing the problem.

    If the problem plugin is hosted on it might also be worth dropping a note into that plugin’s dedicated forum (via its plugin page).

    If you find out which plugin, please post it here as well. It still might be an issue with WordPress core, and that’s something we want to figure out.

    I’m not sure if any one plugin was the culprit. After disabling all plugins, then reenabling them all, the widget area returned. Perhaps the system just needed to clear something. I haven’t experienced the same problem with RC1 on my dev site.

    My widget link under Appearance/widgets vanished after updating to WP Version 3.5.

    I deactivated all my plugins – still no widgets

    3.5 has a bug

    My widget link remains. I believe with 3.5, the widget link is not visible when you have no sidebars defined.

    Problem solved – updated my core and child themes.

    Looks like widget problem is a theme problem.

    when I updated to wp 3.5 my links widget disappeared.

    How can it be a theme problem when it existed with the older version of wordpress?

    Mystified. looking for an easy fix since this affects several of my websites.
