Ignoring explicitly provided widget ID ; Shiny doesn't use them



I am trying to use Plotly to visualize on the shiny dashboard. But only the plot background shows up, without the plot and I end up with the following warning:

Warning in origRenderFunc() :
Ignoring explicitly provided widget ID “2ce07ec59b5”; Shiny doesn’t use them.

I have tried every tip and trick mentioned so far in StackOverflow and GitHub but to no avail.
Please advise.

If it’s possible, share the relevant parts of the app code and maybe someone can help.


And if anyone is interested in why, you can follow these threads:

Why it’s OK to ignore for now:
