Updated to GP 1.3.30 today. and my website lost all the widgets that were there!May 29, 2016 at 10:59 am #197691TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Were you using a child theme perhaps and switched to the parent theme? Sometimes switching themes can send your active widgets into the “Inactive Widgets” area?May 29, 2016 at 11:04 am #197694Mizanur
Yes, but if I go back to child theme, then I have to start all over again?May 29, 2016 at 11:08 am #197697TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Start what all over again? You can just keep the child theme activated – the updates to the parent theme will run in the background.May 29, 2016 at 11:16 am #197699Mizanur
by mistake i activated parents theme, then within 2 minutes i went back to child theme – forefront – the one i use. but that does not give me back all the widgets there! now the child theme is activated but seems like i have to place all the widgets everything again.May 29, 2016 at 11:18 am #197701TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
This is an annoying issue with WordPress – all of your widgets should be in the “Inactive Widgets” area in “Appearance > Widgets”.
Not sure why WordPress does this sometimes, it’s technically the same theme with the same widget IDs.May 29, 2016 at 11:21 am #197702Mizanur
you are right. they are all inactive and i am putting widgets back to its place. if this was large website, I will be dead by now! 🙂
and I am seeing this: ( i have put some widgets back but customization area’s widget showing this option!May 29, 2016 at 11:22 am #197703TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperMay 29, 2016 at 11:26 am #197705Mizanur
