So for some reason I have like 500 dynamic widgets on my widget page and only 4 of them are in use. How do I remove them? It takes me like 2 minutes to scroll to the bottom to add widgets to the only 4 I’m using.April 2, 2012 at 6:45 pm #69776
I’ve sent the issue to Kriesi to address and will get back to you as soon as possible.

None yet. I have the thread and issue marked in my watch list and will update as soon as an answer is available :)

To be honest I dont understand the question :)
Where do these 500 widget areas come from? did you create them with the template builder or with the sidebar widget area tool? why not simply remove them there?
KriesiJune 25, 2012 at 2:25 pm #69780
Kriesi, I think that these widget areas came from the template builder because I made a make-shift-boutique on my site where I created the same side bar column on every page which included custom widgets that I labeled “mid column”s 1-4. But I only did that once to create the widget area, and then for the rest of the templates by typing in the widget area name it uses that widget assigned to that area.
Well perhaps it used the assigned new widget AND created a new area.
Anyway, check out this screenshot. see how the widget areas repeat? and see how small my scroll bar is? I have hundreds of these and I cannot delete them.
ALSO, my widget page doesn’t have java working anymore, so i cannot drag and drop, and yes java is enabled on my browser.

oh and at the bottom it stops loading the rest of the widget areas with one of them containing this error text:
Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home/metrod/public_html/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 350July 4, 2012 at 6:11 am #69782
Please try to increase your php execution time (maybe you need to contact your hoster for this task) and make sure that your allocated memory is at least 96M or 128M: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP
