Widgets 'in use', but aren't actually used!? (2 posts)

    On my dashboard, it says I am using 3 widgets.

    Under Appearance>Widgets the 'Add' link next to my recent posts, comments and polls are not there. However, they are not being used either.

    For some reason, my system thinks it is using these three widgets but they are not.

    How can I correct this?
    I have tried deactivating-reactiving all plugins to no avail.
    The problem occurred when I toyed with a tabbed sidebar widget, but I have since deleted that plugin, but the problem still remains :(

    I wonder if this is activating a theme that had two sidebars, adding the Page Widget to what would be the 2nd sidebar, then changing to a theme with just one sidebar?

    If so, try changing back to a two sidebar theme, removing the Pages widget, then back to the single sidebar theme.

    Also guess you could delete the 'widget_xxxxx' option names in wp_options or set their values to a:0:{}

    If that is the issue, please report back here. Thanks.
