ver 8 question installed but lost all widgets

I did the upgrade and made the required raw data changes but I can't get any of the widgets or the category listing  to appear on the left or right.   Could there be some code from a previous tweak over the year that's interfering.  I have the site set to the supplied default skin at this time.  There were no widgets showing on the skin that was updated from 7 either.  If so what do I need to do to start clean with out loosing my order and customer data.

Re: ver 8 question installed but lost all widgets

Hi lgbsteve.  Did you follow these instructions for updating your skin?

https://central.kryptronic.com/public/n … ANGES.html

If so, as you mentioned that you had issues before the upgrade, maybe you want to consider logging into your management interface and accessing the System | Component | Settings | Display Skins function.  There, choose 'Desktop' for the skin and upload your logo. 

Also, be sure you followed all of the instructions here:

https://central.kryptronic.com/public/n … grade.html

Specifically, the pre-upgrade database changed that need to be made here:

https://central.kryptronic.com/public/n … e-PRE.html

You may not have done them, so the skin widgets didn't import correctly.  You'd be safe to run those pre-upgrade database changes again, then re-run the installer.  That should fix skin widget issues.

Re: ver 8 question installed but lost all widgets

Thanks I had missed the Display Skin Changes file.

I can't seem to find this area though.

Then, in the management interface, access the System | Displays | Skin Widgets function, and change the value for the 'Desktop Display Group' field to 'SIDEMENU' for any skin widgets that you want to appear there.

I go to :System | Displays | Skin Widgets |   [widget]        But I only see
Component*
Namespace*
Name*

Where do I go to change the positioning?

I also need to now remove your demo skin widget side menu "turbo distortion" and Acoustics.  :0)
Where to I find them?

Thanks again.

Run the update again.  This time make sure you execute all of the pre-upgrade database statements.  Do a full load of the database with all files.  That should refresh the skin widgets.

Re: ver 8 question installed but lost all widgets

That helped some,  but I still can't make changes to the widgets in admin.  I can do it from mysql.  I can live with that.

Thanks

Re: ver 8 question installed but lost all widgets

You shouldn't have to do that.  I recommend dropping the core_skinwidgets table from the db, then doing a reinstall, choosing to overwrite all files and doing a full be reload.   Also, delete any rows in the core_columndefs table which start with core_skinwidgets prior to the reinstall.
