Widgets Frozen

Recommended Posts


Wordpress version 3.5

Pagelines version 2.3.8


After upgrading, the Widgets page is completely frozen. I cannot open tabs (the Primary sidebar tab stays open, cannot close or open tabs within it), cannot click and drag from Available Widgets, cannot edit. Nothing. It is essentially frozen. When I rollover the tabs I do get the hand tool although. (No, I am not trying to navigate on a screenshot.)


Attached is the widget page as is, I cannot change the state of how it looks from here.

I tried in Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. Same.


But, all of the widgets are active and working properly on the website itself. So they haven't been deleted or messed up.


All other areas of the site are working, including Menus (drag, drop, edit).


Perhaps with the new Wordpress 3.5, Pagelines may need to adjust to the new widget features?

PageLines does not do anything to the widgets page, so there is nothing to update ;)


Could be a plugin outputting some javascript to every admin page causing a problem. Try deactivating them til you find the offender.


Tty clearing browser cache too, might help.

Thanks Simon

Turns out it was the Widget Logic plugin. Oy. I hope they update the plug in for Wordpress 3.5. I can't live without Widget Logic!

Glad it wasn't Pagelines.

      Hi guys,
      I have been unsuccessfully trying to get my 3-column widgetized footer aligned centered. The widget section itself is aligned left because the alignment appears to be controller the widget's content only. The container that contains the widget section is aligned centered. I have chosen a 3 column layout and I added 3 widgets, assuming they would be aligned centered.
      Any idea of what I may be doing wrong?

      We're seeing an abnormal break in widgets in Safari (El Capitan v10.11.4). 3 Widgets set for 4 of 12 columns each breaks correctly in Chrome and Firefox, but the 3rd widget goes to another line in Safari.
      Screenshot attached.
      Hoping there's a CSS fix you could recommend in the meantime, until an update. You can see this on our home page: www.novusweb.com.

      I have an issue with the widgets on my blog post page. The Facebook widget is being shifted up and next to the Mumii widget above...? How can I force it to remain underneath?

      I added a post to my blog last night and as soon as I published the content, my "primary sidebar" fell to the bottom of the home page. When I go into other areas of the site, like "contact" or "about", the side bar comes back to where it belongs. So far I tried going to Appearance->Customize and then deleting and reducing assets in the "Widgets: Primary Sidebar" but nothing changed/worked.
      I consider myself slightly savvy but I don't quite understand many terms and lingo with html and CSS - so I would appreciate the most laments terms possible when describing a solution.
      My site is:
      Thank you!

      I am working on may client's website, who is the manager of he site for his client. My client has hired me to fix the footer area of the website. As you can see here: http://www.makerstoolworks.com/, the MoreFoot Right Widget is Showing in the middle column.
      I would have downloaded the theme and done some digging into the files to see if there is a div tag out of place and so on. However, my client does not have the ftp login info for the website (as he is the marketing strategist. [Yes I know.... it's weird]).
      However, if you can point me into the right direction on where I need to start looking in order to fix the problem.
      Also, I do not know if my client's client has paid for premium support. So I hope that this question can be answered for me in all regards.
      Thank you
