Support » Fixing WordPress » Widgets won't open or move

  • Hi there! I am having an issue that I’ve seen in the forum before, but the thread was closed so I’m starting a new one. The widgets won’t open or move; therefore, I can’t edit them at all. I thought this may be a result of not upgrading to the latest version of WordPress, but then I did that and nothing changed. Then, I deactivated the most recent plugin I installed, and that didn’t do anything. I then ran my CSS through a validator, and it came out with zero errors. So, I’m at a loss. The site is Does anyone have any other ideas? Thanks so much!!

    still awesome :)

    To test if it is plugin related, turn off all your plugins and try the widgets again.

    If it still doesn’t work, switch your theme to twentyfourteen and try again. If it works now, then you may have issues with your current theme.

    Hi!! Guess what – I picked one plugin randomly, and it was the one. What’s odd is that it’s not a new plugin – in fact, it was installed by the original designer at least two years ago. Anyway – I deactivated, did what I needed to do in the widgets, then reactivated b/c I’m not sure if the plugin is really needed or not since I didn’t design the site originally.

    So – yay – problem solved. Thanks again!!
