We recently upgraded to 2.8.4. After the upgrade on two sites, our widgets admin page does not work. The page is visible but we cannot drag widgets to or from the sidebar, widget settings cannot be accessed and the screen options menu does not work.
Since we can’t access the screen options menu, I can’t change the accessibility mode.
We run the Thesis theme on our sites. I have switched to the default theme with no change.
I deactivated ALL of our plugins – no effect. (I did deactivate all the plugins during the upgrade)
I took out some customization in thesis – no effect.
I tried restoring the old version of widgets.php but that got me an error. I also tried copying in the widgets.php from the new install with no effect.
We have an older site I tried a practice run at the upgrade on and it behaves a little different. The widgets aren’t accessible but the screen options menu is. I tried adding Thesis there, but that didn’t break it.
The problem is the same in Firefox and IE and different machines.
