Dashboard widgets disappear after upgrade?



  • Just upgraded to 1.2.3 Final.  Smooth as can be (outstanding work devs!)  Only glitch: when I went to top-level page, no widgets.  I reinstalled the xml component of the dashboard and all was well.  Hmmm….



  • just go to installed packages and reinstall the dashboard, it comes back with all your settings, happened to me.

    Usually when a package is not working (like your problem) reinstalling it will fix it.



  • I thought that's what I just said?  Yes, it works fine, just a glitch.



  • sorry, i didnt read your entire thread, just the title.

    That is normal.

    The dashboard package replaces index.php, which is also overwritten during the upgrade process. Thus, you must reinstall the dashboard after any firmware upgrade in order to get the widgets back.
