All Widgets and Sidebars in Admin Panel Disappear


Was having problems with sidebars and widgets not being able to open up once I got to the Appearance/Widgets page.  Deactivated EventOn and it started working again.  Downloaded newest version of the Plugin and installed it and now nothing shows up on the Widgets page at all.  Any ideas?

      It is a problem because I am not able to add the EventON widgets to the sidebars when I deactivate EventON obviously, but this is the only way I can get the sidebars to show up.

      Also, FYI I installed your patch, but it still is having the same issues.  Deactivated the Single Event plugin also.  No change.

      Also, none of my events are showing up in the sidebar widgets now on the pages.

      For example, on https://www.itdojo.com/it-training-courses-virginia-beach/courses-cisco/icnd1-v2-0-interconnecting-cisco-networking-devices-part-1/

      Above “Get a Training Quote” is supposed to have my list of classes with the EventON plugin.  I have been using this plugin for a few years now without issue until now.

      single events was not deactivated

      so I deactivated and events work https://www.itdojo.com/daves-event-on-test/


      as for the widgets page- I went to the page and there was no place to drag and drop widgets into

      so I will alert the plugin creator- you may want to post private your ftp login as he may need this to fix the problem

      while you wait for ashan the creator to fix your site


      you may want to turn eventon on- choose a shortcode from this (create a new page and use the shortcode generator to get a calendar shortcode) – copy and paste the calendar shortcode into something like a note pad

      then deactivate eventon- and add a text file to your widget and add that eventon shortcode to the text widget

      then re-activate eventon- hopefully that widget will show the calendar

      All the errors you are getting are from advaced widget plugin and thats why its not working. Once its deactivated it works fine.

      You can perfom the debug yourself http://www.myeventon.com/documentation/how-to-debug-for-php-code-errors/ to see how i got those errors.

      I deactivated and uninstalled that widget and it is still not working.  Cleared cache as well.  I still cannot see the sidebars on the Widgets page nor can I see the event lists on my pages.

      That plugin I mean.  I deactivated and uninstalled it.  Still not working.

      I really do think it is the EventON plugin causing the problem.  If I deactivate it then fo to Appearance—->Widgets, I can see all my sidebars and widgets.  When I activate the plugin in and go back to Appearance—–>Widgets, all the sidebars and widgets disappear.

      Even with your plugin activated, I do not see any of the events located on any of the pages that I have the EventON widgets running.

      Ok found the issue you have wayyyyyy too many inactive widgets


      You need to delete them if you are not using thats whats causing the page to break.

    • By: crealities Jan 17,2017 AT 2:56PM - Posted 5 years ago - #23804

      Ok….I removed a ton of those and now I am able to see the sidebars in the Appearance/Widgets section, but when I go to pages that should have the EVENTON widget in the sidebars are gone.


      See this page.  https://www.itdojo.com/it-training-courses-virginia-beach/courses-cisco/cisco-foundations-ccna/

      I got it to work (Event Lists was deactivated), but all of the shortcodes have been removed from my sidebars and I will have to manually add them again.  Any idea why?

    • By: Ashan Perera Jan 17,2017 AT 3:33PM - Posted 5 years ago - #23809

      please try now. I deactivated some parts of the shortcode executor widget because multiples of those were causing the issue. But I activated it back again please try.

    • By: crealities Jan 18,2017 AT 6:51AM - Posted 5 years ago - #23916

      I still had to manually add them.  It took a bit of time, but that is ok.  All is back to normal now.

      Thanks so much for your help, Ashan.  I really appreciate your commitment to supporting this product.  It is by far the best one I have seen out there for events.  I have a new client coming up that will need events on their site and I will definitely be purchasing another EventON license to use on that site.

      Keep up the great work!
