Hi, since last Friday and the 4.8 WordPress update, I have lost the Frontpage 1, 3, 5 text widgets. The update changed the html widget to a visual editor and ruined the code – it’s simply not working any more.
I have tried using the Classic Text Widget that Victor Font on the Studiopress forum suggested but it won’t work either. If I refresh the homepage, for a nanosecond, I can see my widgets, but they don’t render after that.
I put some html, button code, divs, and span classes into the old text widget.
I am at complete loss as to how to resolve this. And it’s pretty urgent as the site needs to go live mid-end this week. I am really desperate to sort this so your help appreciated.
Looks like the issue is coming from a plugin you’re using called “WP Overlays“.
