  • Hey there,

    anyone the same issues that custom sidebars in categories are not working. i get the same sidebar (default) on all categories after update to 4.8, even the custom ones are shown under “widgets”

    maybe its an theme issue, bus very strange. on sites the custom sidebars still working.

  • Hi,

    Is your custom sidebars created by a plugin?

    Thank you

    Hey Denzel,

    it is created by the theme (Gonzo) itself.
    But maybe theres s.th. changed in WP?

    The Code (at least what i understand)

    <?php
    wp_reset_query();
    dynamic_sidebar(get_sidebar_name());
    ?>

    Best

    Hi,

    The function get_sidebar_name is a function found in jetpack plugin.
    I think you are using this plugin.

    It’s probably related to widget visibility control on your widgets.

    Thank you

    Hey Denzel,
    unfortunately i am not using this plugin, the code is out the theme.
    is there any way that wordpress causes this issue because until 4.8. everything worked fine.
    best & thanks a lot

    Hi,

    Sorry, I had not used the theme, perhaps you can ask theme’s support if they are experiencing this issue.

    Sidebar is working properly for me using WordPress 4.8 with default themes.

    Thank you

    Hi,
    not only categories but even text-editor is also not working. I made a custom sidebar widget in my theme and after updating to 4.8 I’m unable to save a new text widget in the widget sidebar.
