widget disappears after clicking save changes
|Reported by:||robfelty||Owned by:|
Using wordpress 2.7, revision 10186, there is a possible bug in the widget handling. I noticed this for all 4 of the plugins I have written. They worked fine in WP 2.6, but in WP 2.7, when adding a widget, it would disappear from the widget list after saving changes. Eventually I found the problem to be that the id_base cannot be mixed case. At least, changing from mixed case to all lowercase solved the problem for my plugins. But I don't see why that the id_base should have to be all lower case. It seems like WP allows mixed case in most other situations. I have more details about the problem and my experiences on my blog:
I had users of my plugins report this issue in all major browsers. I suspect that the issue is somewhere in the wp_register_sidebar_widget function or the wp_register_widget_control function.
Thanks for all your great work on wordpress!
