Support » Plugins » WP SlimStat Dashboard widgets frozen

  • Nicole Parks


    I upgraded to the newest WordPress version, 3.5, and now as long as the SlimStat Dashboard widgets are activated, they’re frozen as well as the other WordPress default widgets. Even my “Screen Options” and “Help” tabs won’t work. I can’t click and drag the widgets around, and I can’t click the top bars of them to expand and collapse them.

    I’ve deactivated all my plugins and reactivated them, I’ve tried deactivating both the WP SlimStat and WP SlimStat Dashboard Widget plugins and reactivating them, and even uninstalling and reinstalling them, wiping out the previous statistical data. I don’t know much about code, so most of the other possible solutions I’ve read in the support docs for this plugin go way over my head.

    Any idea why this is happening?

  • I have the same problem… Widgets are frozen

    Everything seems to be working just fine on my dev site. Could you post a screenshot of what you see? Also, do you guys have Firebug or Chrome to see if there’s any javascript errors on that page?

    I have the same problem after upgrading to 3.5. The widget page area looks like usual, I just can’t interact with anything there. Can’t open widgets, nor moving them.

    Did anybody figure it out? It’s ridiculous. Can’t click on any of the widgets.

    There’s not much a screenshot will do. Things look normal, but when you click the header bars of each widget (including the default WordPress widgets that are affected the same way as the SlimStat widgets), nothing happens – what’s expanded doesn’t collapse and what’s collapsed doesn’t expand. And when you click and drag on the header bars, instead of each widget moving around, you get what my screenshot shows. Like the widgets have become text.

    Actually, I’m having trouble posting a screenshot. There’s no “attach file” or anything on my post editor. How do you do it?

    Anyway, I’ve uploaded the screenshot to my site, so use this link to find it:

    Can you see if you have any javascript errors in Firebug? Or let me take a look? You can contact me at

    Not sure how to do that myself, so yeah, if you’ll take a look. I’ll try the link you posted.

    @nicole, check your email 🙂

    Temporarily disabling WP SlimStat Dashboard Widgets will solve the issue 😉 And it might be ridiculous, but don’t forget that it’s free!!

    Hey WP-ers,

    This code sets it back to version 3.4.2.. Use it until 3.5 problems are solved. Put it in ur .htaccess.

    <ifModule mod_rewrite.c>
     RewriteEngine On
     RewriteBase /
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (environ|localhost|mosconfig|scanner) [NC,OR]
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (menu|mod|path|tag)\=\.?/? [NC,OR]
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} boot\.ini  [NC,OR]
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} echo.*kae  [NC,OR]
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} etc/passwd [NC,OR]
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \=\\%27$   [NC,OR]
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \=\\\'$    [NC,OR]
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \.\./      [NC,OR]
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \?         [NC,OR]
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \:         [NC]
     RewriteRule .* - [F]

    IDML, what are you talking about?


    I just updated to 3.5. My widgets are frozen but I do not have SlimStat plugin. I can go to screen options and click Enable accessibility mode which will let me edit the widgets in a weird way but not add more widgets. Any ideas???

    That’s what I was starting to suspect: that the widgets are frozen not because of my plugin 🙂 those who are using SlimStat, can you disable the dashboard widget plugin and see what happens?

    I personally think SlimStat is the coolest plugin since, well, plugins. I have been searching for a really great stat solution and the dashboard widgets are just awesome! I’m so excited about them! So I don’t think this is ridiculous. It happens, and I appreciate that the plugin developer took this issue on as soon as I posted it. It’s the kind of support one would expect of a paid plugin, and it’s free! So thanks, Camu. I don’t forget these plugins are free and they make my job possible.

    By the way, Camu, yes, I do notice that if I deactivate the dashboard widgets (not the main SlimStat plugin) the widgets that are left (the original WordPress widgets) work fine. I just really hope the SlimStat dashboard widget issue gets resolved because they are awesome!
