I can add widgets to the sidebar, but if I add text or data to them and save it doesn't permanently save, it will disappear. For instance if I take a Text widget and put it in the sidebar, and put a title and some text, the title and text will disappear as soon as I leave widgets. I have this with two blogs, one I just upgradded to 2.8 and one I installed as 2.8. The widgets worked fine in 2.7.
I am seeing other forum posts on this so suspect it is widespread.
Is there some file permission I am missing?
Anyone running 2.8 able to add new widgets (try text) and add text to it and have it save?
