New Drag/Drop Widget Interface does not work in Wordpress 2.8
|Reported by:||grassrootspa||Owned by:||azaozz|
Hi guys, I've been running, editing and updating Wordpress for years, and have never had major problems with the various widget variations ...until now.
After installing Wordpress 2.8 beta 1 and beta 2 I have found it impossible to work with sidebar widgets (the new interface does not seem to work).
Under the new Wordpress 2.8 widget interface I simply cannot drag/drop wigets into my sidebars. While I can *sometimes* (after fiddling around with a widget) 'drag' widgets from under the 'Available Widgets' and 'Inactive Widgets' headings to the general sidebar area, once I drop them to a sidebar, nothing happens.
I'm also unable to 'open' the 'Inactive Widgets' via the triangle in the upper right-hand side. Trying to do so seems to make the screen (which was scrolled down to view their lower box section) jump back up to the top.
I've tested the widget interface in IE8, FF 3, Chrome, and Safari with no luck.
Apparently I'm not the only one having problems:
My theme is Sandbox 1.5.1. I doubt this is a theme issue as the widget interface issue began when Wordpress 2.8 betas unveiled the new revamped widget interface.
