Tagged: text widget
I'm using Daily Dish Pro. I've tried adding a new text widget and it simply won't save. I've tried it on two different computers and two different browsers. It will allow me to drag the widget into the desired area (in this case a footer) but when I try to save the text, it blanks out.
It depends on what you are trying to save in the widget. WordPress made a major change to the text widget in 4.8. They added the TinyMCE editor to the text widget that strips HTML from your content. That's what prompted us to release the classic text widget plugin. With WordPress 4.8.1, they added a HTML widget for code snippets. If you want a widget that works like it did before 4.8, install the classic text widget.
I'm trying to add a footer with my Amazon affiliate disclosure statement, which does include a link. But I've also tried test copy that is straight text and that doesn't save either.
It seems that the change renders the text widget unusable??
