I am trying to add a web part that was accidentally closed. I am doing this through Edit, Add Web Part, Advanced Web Part gallery and options, Closed Web Parts, Selecting my closed web part and attempting to add it.
The workflow is slightly different depending on browser - in IE, you have to drag it to the correct row, in Chrome/FF you need to select the web part and click the "Add" button.
The errors are also different depending on button. IE reports that the item no longer exists, and it says this no matter which web part I select.
Unable to add selected web part(s). The Web Part you attempted to add no longer exists in the Closed Web Parts Gallery. It may have already been added to the Web Part Page. Refresh
your browser to update the Web Part Page and the Gallery.
Chrome and FF show a much more generic error:
Unable to add selected web part(s). An error has occurred.
I don't even know where to start looking.. The web part DOES exist - it's listed everywhere and it was only just closed (not deleted). It is not already added on the web page.
