    I am losing the widgets every time i activate a new theme, and this includes the widgets i create with this plugin. It's just blank. So I have to reassign all the widgets again

    is there a way that the assignment stick even after installing/activating a new theme?

    Hi,

    This is the default WordPress behavior. When you deactivate a theme WordPress will make all widgets inactive. When you activate a new theme WordPress doesn't know where to put your widgets simply because every theme has its own set of widgets. This means you have to manually place them in the right sidebars.

    So basically there is not much we can do here. Changing the default WordPress behavior might lead to other issues.
