Please Try using Classic Widgets Plugin.
And for further questions, please create new topics at wpForo.com/community
Hi! i can´t change or delete the widget. It´s only showing the spinning wheel. I set the widget in WPforo 1.x and updated to V2 a few weeks back. Whenever opening Appearences -> widgets in WP i´m getting a lot of red error messages:
Der Block „wpforo_recent_topics“ ist von Fehlern betroffen und funktioniert möglicherweise nicht richtig.
… and can´t change anything in regards of the WPforo widget (delete/settings)
What do you mean by “using classics widget plugin”? wouldn´t it be great to just fix the problem?
Please go to Dashboard > Plugins admin page and install the Classic Widgets plugin, then manage your widgets again. After all, you can disable that plugin and manage widgets with blocks.
Thank you for the suggestion. To be honest, i´m not keen to install another plugin to fix a plugin. There are already to many plugins on our site. I´ll wait for the next WPforo update with the fix.
- mmh, did deactivate gutenberg with
// Disables the block editor from managing widgets in the Gutenberg plugin.
add_filter( 'gutenberg_use_widgets_block_editor', '__return_false', 100 );
// Disables the block editor from managing widgets. renamed from wp_use_widgets_block_editor
add_filter( 'use_widgets_block_editor', '__return_false' );
deleted the widget, added the widget, did the settings, deactivated the filter in functions.php, went back to the widget admin, same error as before.
2) oh, ok, read some other posts about the same problem without solutions so i thought it´s more of a general problem.
3) thank you. The widget is working so i will stand the error messages and keep it that way.
The widget is populated in one of the footer areas of Astra theme Pro. Maybe thats special. I heard it´s one of the most used themes out there.
