v 4.4.4 Unable to add widgets to template

In an effort to create new templates, I was successful with creating the regions, however, I am unable to add widgets.  I believe that I will need a screen share call to resolve. Chris Wright is intimately familiar with our setup/past issues.  


I am going to create a support ticket from this request.  We will post resolution here when done. 


The cause of the problem in this case was a version of jQuery UI being referenced by the template (the CMS user interface also uses jQuery and there was likely a conflict between the two versions). 

We were able to work around the problem by clicking ‘View --> Disable JavaScript’ in the CMS while editing the template.

Hope this helps!
