Classic Widgets


Classic Widgets is an official plugin maintained by the WordPress team that restores the previous (“classic”) WordPress widgets settings screens. It will be supported and maintained until at least 2022, or as long as is necessary.

Uma vez activado, este plugin recupera os antigos ecrãs de opções de widgets e desactiva a gestão de widgets do editor de blocos. Não há qualquer outra configuração, os ecrãs clássicos de configuração de widgets são activados ou desactivados através de activar ou desactivar este plugin.

I can confirm, this plugin helped the our wordpress 5.8 hosting clients. Our Dutch webhosting and our partner US webhosting clients confirm that plugin does the work it should. We also confirm that by switching on you loose Gutenberg widget content. Be careful. Thank you for development and support! Great job

I was coming back to my old free blog on WP only to find that it can't be edited any more. Since the blog is free, I can't activate the "Classic Widgets" Plugin and will not be able to edit the old blog or do anything sensible to it without upgrading. Not very tempting now.

The first time I tried to use the new block version, I got a bunch of error messages pop up (I assume it doesn't like something else... but doesn't really help me by saying what), but thankfully also a popup advising me to install this plug-in. Works fine, back they way it used to be / still should be!

I was having the hardest time with this new widget design and it just isn't as user-friendly as the old one. Thankfully this app is here and I hope they keep it updated in perpetuity!
