    My site is:

    My site is working fine but I noticed the other day that the widget area (appearance -> widget) is not working with the drag and drop feature anymore. (Also, I am able to add/delete widgets to the all sections except for Footer 3 which is no longer visible; the text widget that I had there is still working, though.)

    This is not an emergency, but obviously I would like to fix these two problems.

    I have deactivated all non-essential plugins to see if there is any conflict. I have also gone to screen options in the upper right hand corner and it is not responding. I am reluctant to try theme Twenty Twelve until the weekend.

    My site updated to the latest build of Genesis automatically and I also did an update of All-in-One-Calendar. Could there possibly be a conflict from one of these two updates?

    Note, I am using jQuery UI Widgets to support another widget I am using for the site. I have tried deactivating it but that hasn’t helped fix my problem.

    I appreciate any advice.

    Sounds like it’s mostly likely going to be a JavaScript error somewhere.

    If you go to the widgets screen, and hit F12, your browser will likely open a toolbar at the bottom – have a look through for anything called console, or script errors, and report back what it says.

    Best to disable ALL plugins, temporarily.

    Thank you, Gary–I did go back and deactivate the other plugins and it turns out that the problem was caused by a plugin for youtube. The widget page is working well now.

    Thanks for having me go back and and deactivate the other plugins!
