Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress Admin issue??

  • Please advice here…

    For some reason, today in my admin panel, I canĀ“t click on the arrows to scroll down the widgets bars from the appearance tab. See below link image to see which tabs I am talking about.

    I have been installing 3 plugins, 2 mobile detectos and 1 youtube sidebar widget.

    It worked perfectly a couple of days ago.
    What can I do??

    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.

    Updating your wordpress might also help try that..

    Thanks guys.

    Yes I deactivated them one at time and found the root cause. Nice.

    Much appreciated


    BTW: Sorry for this offtopic question, but somehow they are related since I was afraid that I messed up something in the admin area.
    It is regarding backups. If I copy all my files from a FTP software and store them at my harddrive, is this considered as a valid backup of my site or what is the approach here??

    Nope – that’s not a backup at all. First and foremost, you need to backup your database as that’s where the bulk of your site’s content is actually stored. Then you could download a copy of your wp-content/uploads folder so that you have an offsite copy of your images & attachments. Finally, always keep a copy of any themes you have customised.

    Anything else, you should be able to re-download from the original source.

    Thanks Esmi.

    I can backup my database from phpmyadmin and also my server provider takes regulary backups.

    I am not sure I can download from original source? I paid someone from vworker to make a website for me, I guess he picked the template. He never told me how to retrieve it again.

    Are there any wordpress plugins to do the backup? I prefer free ones
