If you've already updated your site to WordPress 4.8, then you may have been surprised to learn that the Classic Text Widget has been replace with a new Text Widget that uses the TineMCE Editor, the same editor that is used to edit posts and pages. This has caused a lot of problems for developers because the new text widget rewrites your HTML markup.
Thanks to Christina Arasmo Beymer, the Classic WordPress Text Widget is available as a plugin. Christina started the work yesterday and an loaded her code to Github. She asked that someone fork the code and finish it up so it can be posted to the WordPress repository, which I've done. While we're waiting for its addition to the repository, you can download the plugin here: Classic Text Widget, or get the source code from https://github.com/vfontjr/classic-text-widget
The plugin is now in the WordPress repository. https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-text-widget/
