This time it happened .. My wordpress installation broke after a (spontaneous) update (the widgets are completely missing) so i had to switch over to one of the standard templates. I don’t know why i did not followed my own habits this time and made a backup. So in case you’re a returning visitor and wondering about the changed layout you know the reason now.
I’ll try my best to get the old look back up running. And install some automated backup plugins afterwards. (i guess)
I’ve might found a reason for the breakdown and (hopefully) a solution. As described in [Wordpress Support Forum](http://wordpress.org/support/topic/widgets-disappear-from-admin-after-manual-upgrade “WordPress Support – Widgets are missing after update to 3.2.1″) you might have your
zend.ze1_compatibility_mode = On
file. Changing that to
should be bring the ”’Widgets”’ back.
Because my provider has “not the fastest” support response time and i’m planning to move my domains anyway i don’t know if it’s worth the effort. I’ll give it a try and we’ll see. No later after i moved i’ll do it by myself.
