Customize->Widgets vs Appearance->Widgets

Posted in

WordPress has two ways to set up widgets. One is to use Customize on the front end and the other way is in the backend go to Appearance->Widgets. Widgets Control Pro has separate settings in these two places. If I change the settings in one place, the other place does not automatically get updated. This leads to some really confusing behavior.

    Hi George,

    I was running an older version. I updated to 2.1.0. I guess that will solve the problem.

    Hi Jonathan,

    That’s exactly how the plugin works, the settings used in Appearance > Widgets apply also under Customize.
    Please check your plugin version and update if necessary because your current one is probably outdated.
    FYI, the latest version of Widgets Control Pro is 2.1.0.

    Kind regards,
