wordpress sidebar disappeared from site AND dashboard WordPress


My sidebar and footer widgets have disappeared from my site (

The option to see and edit which widgets are active has also disappeared from the Wordpress dashboard.

I recently activated a mobile template for the site which I think may have been the problem. I deleted the mobile theme but the problem persisted.

I have also:

reinstalled wordpress
deactivated all plugins

but the problem persists

Anyone have any ideas? I have been using my current theme for a long time, never having any problems before.

Any suggestions?

Reinstall WordPress, all plugins, too.

Check your functions.php file (within your theme folder), or upload backup of functions.php.

Clear the cache on your browser.

Can you provide the URL of the website or the test area where the wordpress is installed.

Please let me know the plugins that are installed and whether the plugins are activated or not.
