    Whenever i try to drag an application to the dock, it will not do anything. Instead of making a space for it to be put in, it just stays there, and the dock doesnt move. Same goes for taking apps out. If i try and drag an app out of the dock, it wont move. It just stays there.

    I need help!

    Try pulling the icon further down, to the base of the dock

    try relaunching the dock and see if it works, if not, then reboot.

    Uninstall any new themes you put on, etc.

    Yes. Search Spotlight for terminal, then when it opens, type; Killall Dock, and click enter.

    Okay Guys. I did all that, and it doidnt fix it. Its still in a "locked" type thing! None of the apps in the dock wll move, not even to switch places. And none csn be added on!
