We download and that's it. No adjustment. Happy to have a feature imposed on you that you don't really need on wordpress.

How ineffective is the new Widgets block editor in WordPress 5.8!!!! Super glad this plugin exists. Luckily only updated 1 site to 5.8. Hope WP will sort out this ugly interface and ridulous way of working with widgets before I need to update the rest of my sites. The previous version worked quite fine. Why change a working system. Luckily I use a page builder to build my pages and not the block editor. Thank you Classic Widgets for being available.

After many years of using WordPress, I don't understand why main core developers have to change to something stupid. Classic Editor is definitely perfect and now Classic Widget again. Thank you for this plugin developer, you save my life.

évite pas mal de désagrément lorsque l'on utilise des thème comme Astra avec une interface déjà très élaborée pour éditer les zones de footer utilisant les widgets
