Widget Weirdness?

    Anyone else having this issue?

    When I drag a text widget to any of the widgetized areas, the widget opens without a textbox area to add content area, it just shows the widget title bar, Delete and Close links and the Save button, nothing else.

    If I navigate away to another admin panel, then back to widgets, the textbox area appears and I can enter content. Wierd, never had this happen before with any version of Thematic.

    I'm using the downloaded Thematic, and it doesn't make a difference if I have any plugins enabled or all disabled. I turned on Debug, nothing, and I cannot find anything wrong with my functions file.

    Appreciate any thoughts to reolve the problem.

    add_filter('wp_page_menu_args','childtheme_menu_args', 20);

    I can't seem to replicate the problem. Do you have the same issue with the text widget if you switch out to TwentyTen theme?

    Thanks for the reply beanfair. The problem seems to be aparrent only on my workstation (Ubuntu Linux w/ LAMPP) web server. After I uploaded the site to it's real home on the 'Net, the widgets are working just fine. **scratches head**

    Dunno what the issue is, but it's definitely local to my workstation setup. I'll look into it more when I start the next website development locally.
