Support » Fixing WordPress » Widgets have become inactive

  • Hi all,

    The widgets on my site have all been sent to the inactive widgets area and have been replaced by the pages and archive widgets. The thing is, the pages and archive widgets aren’t even in the active widget area (right sidebar area) so I can’t remove them!?

    It happened straight after I removed a text widget which had the html embed code for a youtube video in it.

    I’ve tried clearing my browser cache, uninstalling and reinstalling the theme but neither have worked.

    Any idea what could be wrong?

    Thanks guys.

  • Me, too! I am beside myself here. All of my WordPress blogs broke today. I can’t upload anything. My widgets broke.


    I’ve sent support tickets to my hosting company, but there are so many people here that are reporting the same thing.

    I can’t imagine what has happened.

    Hey RPaxman. Glad to know I’m not the only one! Wish I didn’t reinstall my theme now since I lost some of my customization! Oh well.

    I hope it gets fixed soon whatever it is :/

    My sidebar is now below the content!? This happened earlier on today too but it fixed itself again before the widgets disappeared altogether. What is happening?!
