Cannot edit widgets

  1. I'm new to this. I created the blog with the Benevolence theme about a week ago, and today I tried switching to Kubrick. Now widgets do not work. When I put my cursor over a widget to drag and drop it to the sidebar, I get that 4-arrow pointer, but the pointer disappears as soon as I leave the highlighted widget area. Additionally, when I try to drag and drop a widget from the sidebar back to the left, the pointer disappears. Also, when I try to edit the widgets that got carried over from Benevolence, nothing happens.

    As per another Forum thread, I then tried switching back to Benevolence (to try the trick of deleting them there, then re-adding them in Kubrick). No dice. Now the widgets are un-editable in Kubrick, too.

    So now I have un-editable widgets on the entire blog, no matter what theme I have tried to use (I also tried K2).

    Help?

    The blog I need help with is societyforbarefootliving.wordpress.com.

  5. Same problem here - widgets were working fine a few days ago, now can't make any updates. http://30DayYogaJourney.wordpress.com

  6. I'm having the same problem at my blogs -- http://www.jenontheedge.com and http://www.ecowomen.net.

  7. I was able to edit widgets using Safari on my Mac.

    Widgets are locked and immovable using Firefox 3.0.

  8. Thanks, everybody. At least I know it's not me.

    I imagine after the weekend is over the powers that be will fix things.

  9. I think is a wordpress problem coz right now seems like there are a lot of users with the same problem (me too). I hope admins can fix it soon.
