I will edit the plugins locally then until the plugins's authors put the modification. Thank you @julian for this quick fix. @a_5mith could you let us know when you have pushed it to npm or github please? 😉
I'm not sure if it's just me, but I thought I'd mention it.
I'm using @Schamper's shoutbox plugin and noticed if I deactivate the plugin without removing the widgets first there will be an empty object listed in on the page in the section where the widget would have been. So, I tested it with the widget-essentials too and it does the same thing...
I'm on 0.5.1. Here is how you can duplicate:
What makes this really confusing #4 because you can't get rid of it. It only reappears when you activate the plugin that had the widget again.
Has anyone else experienced this?
And if you added some custom widget sections in your theme.js (like a sidebar for topics.tpl in the vanilla theme), and changed the theme...god help you...but seriously, if you did do that hit me up and I'll tell you how to fix it.
