Help! My WordPress admin is broken!

If you’re unable to add or rearrange widgets or use a theme options panel, or you’re seeing other peculiar behaviour from your WordPress admin panel, it’s often a JavaScript conflict between plugins / themes.

The first thing you need to do is activate a default theme such as Twenty Fifteen, and deactivate (not uninstall) your active plugins. If the problem with your admin panel is now resolved, that means it is a conflict.

You’ll then need to reactivate everything one by one until you find the culprit. If it happens to be one of my plugins, please let me know.
