Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

I am developing a WordPress plugin, but I am having difficulties with the drop-down. A sample drop-down updates fine, but within the Word-Press framework, in the back-end widget form, it is not working. The relevant information is below in terms of configuration. I have a "golden" test platform available to anyone troubleshooting the issue to see it on the back-end at

Thank you for your attention to this issue.

Hi @stephenshalomisraelorg,

Welcome to Trac! This is the place to work on development of the core WordPress code. For help troubleshooting custom code, you should use the Support Forums.

You also should not publicly post login credentials to your site, even if it's a test site. Login credentials should only be shared with other people you trust. I recommend that you deactivate those credentials immediately.

The ticked was closed by the previous contributor, but the issue remains open on my side. There was not provided any reason why the ticket should be closed, so I am reopening it.

I am using GoDaddy hosting for php.

I pressed Shift-Control-C with the Firefox browser to see its perspective.

<select id="mySelect126" onchange="myFunction126()">
  <option value="Audi">Audi
  </option><option value="BMW">BMW
  </option><option value="Mercedes">Mercedes
  </option><option value="Volvo">Volvo
<p id="demo126">Hi There!</p>

For some reason the myFunction126() script is missing. It shows nothing instead of (from the code source):

function myFunction126() {
    var x126 = document.getElementById("mySelect126").value;
        document.getElementById("demo126").innerHTML = "You selected: " + x126;
                alert ("New selection!  x126 = " + x126);
