    Hi there!

    There’s a known issue with saving after adding blocks in the Widgets screen, but it shouldn’t interfere with your existing widgets. Is this the problem you are experiencing?

    If it’s a different issue, could you share some more details on where it is occurring and which widgets are being destroyed?

    You can still access the old screen by going to directly, but I’m afraid the only way of reverting the wp-admin links to the old url is by disabling the Gutenberg plugin.

    I have the same kind of issue with themes 2020 and 2021. Widgets can’t be saved.
