[SOLVED] Widget Trouble

I'm having widget trouble and it seems to be intermittent.

If I try to add or remove a widget I get the busy circle and it never stops. If I keep trying to move it or delete it the I get a WP failure notice "Are you sure you want to do this?" and then I can click to try again.

I started having this trouble when I added new widget areas yesterday. I have since deleted them (and the code).

This morning it was suddenly working again so I deleted my post asking for help.

Now I have a working front end but can't add or delete any widgets. Thinking of uninstalling and reinstalling...

Any ideas of what may be happening before I do the uninstall?

The URL is islandbeadcompany.com

Thanks in advance.

Did you recently add any new plugins? Some of them can make the widget admin area malfunction. What plugins are running?

Hi Paulae,

Thanks for the response. Based on your question, I think I know what I did today. I was tryng to migrate to the My Calendar plugin from Calendar. Stupidly I left Calendar active. This created a momentary mess until I deleted My Calendar.

Everything was back to stable before that. But the same thing occurred yesterday and seemed to resolve on its own. That was after I tried creating new widget areas.

I guess I could try deactivating some plug ins. I run about 6 of them. All very common ones. NextGen, Widget Logic, My Page Order, fast and Secure contact form,HTML-Javascript Adder, Executable PHP widget, table of contents creator.

All of these I've been running on another site with no trouble and on this site (which has only been up for a few days).

Thanks, Pam

Hey Paulea,

I just wanted to let you know that I figured out the trouble. On another site I often have the dashboard open in many windows so I can go from eStore to the Media Library, etc., without losing my place or having to reload.

In this case I had two windows open to the same dashboard page. WP doesn't like that, understandably.

So, as usual, the problem was me!

Thanks for your generous help.
