I've just updated to WP 3.6, and I have also just turned off network mode on a Wordpress website.

I cannot remove a widget I created. It is a text widget. I can't remove a search widget either.

I am logged into WP with the same username that create the widget.

Any ideas?

  • What do you mean can't remove? From the admin? from the template/front end? Please provide more info. – Brooke. Aug 3 '13 at 8:48
  • Sorry, from the admin. – Steve Aug 3 '13 at 8:57

I suggest trying to reset your widgets running this code from your functions.php

     update_option( 'sidebars_widgets', $null ); 

WARNING: this will totally reset your plugins so make sure you save any widget data/settings you need.


The source article also list a plugin/ and better instructions.


This symptom was caused by the plugin "Widget Logic Visual".

Deactivating this plugin resolved the issue.
