Support » Fixing WordPress » WIDGETS caanot get activated….I cannot drag them to sidebar

  • HI,

    I have 2 sites I am working on. The other day I was able to remove on of the widgets from one of my sites, so they were working.

    For the past 2 days, I cannot drag the widgets to the other side. It is happening on both sites.

    I uploaded the new version of WP to see if that was the problem but it is not, still not dragging.

    Any suggestions?

  • Sounds like it could be a problem with the browser ( i.e. an old or bad one which doesn’t support this ). Have you tried with other browsers or installed something lately?

    If that’s not it, any plugins that might interfere? Does the widget screen looks like usual?

    I just spend 2 hours with my dell tech support. they clean and uninstalled the programs I installed and couldnt uninstall them myself…computer is good..

    I am ussing crome and explorer and does not work in either.

    I am having the same problem with all my 4 sites now..

    Widget screen look like usual…

    i just cannot drag it.

    Not being able to drag the widgets is caused by a javascript conflict.

    Have you tried:
    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).
    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.
    – resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Also try this plugin
