Wordpress Widgets Disappearing



  • Having an issue with widgets disappearing from my business site. Some of which link to sign up forms and present key contact info. Have had new customers point it out to me almost every week.

    Has anyone ever had this problem with wordpress or a provider? Its Envato. They seem dubious to the cause. I would guess a database issue.



  • I have had issues with the "weather" widget multiple times and ended up removing it. It would never update. No issues with any others.



  • It’s 4 footer widgets all just image or text, and they all just dissapear every day. And now a sign up and login button in the top right. No fancy things except the twitter widget which is the only one that doesn’t go away.



  • I've never seen that happen.

    Is everything up to date and are your plugins / widgets compatible with your WordPress version?

    If so, is it an issue with the widget or a template issue? Might it be a layout issue, where different screen sizes may potentially hide or mess it it up?



  • Also check for adblockers blocking your widgets.

    They were just gone, occured last year and I noticed but was too lazy too fix. Now that I am working on all the pages to move from the single page to a full website I noticed they kept disappearing.

    Only a huge deal because I am using them for buttons like "sign-up" and for actual contact info in the footer. So looks kind of bad.

    I've not seen this, either.
