Hello to all,   I just wanted to report a plugin called SweepWidget. When installed and activated, it completely locks down Formidable Forms on my side. Unable to add fields, modify fields, unable to switch between settings. It basically locks down Formidable Forms completely. I have deactivated the SweepWidget plugin for now.   Best Regards, Brent

It's highly unsual for another plugin to interfere with Formidable unless the other plugin has a bug that breaks Ajax or jQuery. Are there any errors in the browser console when the plugin is activated?

Victor, that makes sense.

I went to my test domain environment where I was able to test it again with only the two plugins, Formidable Forms and SweepWidget. In the test environment, Formidable Forms is still working fine, with only the two plugins. My main website that utilizes Formidable Forms has a lot of plugins, so there could be an overlap of some kind of code in the domain environment.

Use your browser console to see if there are any errors with jQuery or Ajax. If you don't know how to use the browser inspection tools, please see this:

Usually, if Formidable Forms breaks on the back-end like you are describing, it is caused by another plugin loading their files (javascript,etc.) on all admin pages instead of only their own plugin pages or necessary pages. If you can find the source of the conflict, or provide steps to replicate, we are happy to take a look, but most likely it is something that needs to be changed in another plugin.
