Widgets not updating (6 posts)

    woke up this morning and no widgets in the sidebar of the site will update. i make a change. i save. and nothing changes on site. when i navigate to another page in the dashboard and back to the widgets page, any changes i might have made are gone, its reverted to how it was. if i moved a widget down into the 'inactive widgets' queue, it is back in the sidebar. if i erased some text from a text widget, that text is back again. etc. for any widget.

    this is seemingly out of the blue. i've looked and there seems to be a ton of these cases reported, though all that i saw were pre WP 3.x. i didnt see any resolutions on the others i searched. can ANYONE solve this widget murder mystery? was it the butler with the candlestick? or mrs. plum with the uzi?

    Check your server and php error logs from 2 days ago?

    mikedark,

    I was wondering if you found a solution to what was causing your sites widgets to cache/stop-updating. I'm having the same problem with WP 3.2.1.

    The first time I had this problem I created and deleted a topic/post. It worked but not this time.

    Other potential solution: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/wordpress-widgets-not-working?replies=25#post-1362363
