Classic Widgets is an official plugin maintained by the WordPress team that restores the previous (“classic”) WordPress widgets settings screens. It will be supported and maintained to 2024, or as long as is necessary.
Tested up to6.3.1

Personally, I don't like the new block editor and I always install this classic editor. Please don't stop supporting this one!
First plugin to install everytime
By denny_p on June 22, 2023
1 - install Wordpress
2 - delete Hello Dolly plugin
3 - install Classic Widgets plugin
Unbelievable how Wordpress keeps pushing stuff that does not work and force people to install this plugin.
Restoration of sanity!
By ahyangyi on June 17, 2023
I tried to coexist with block widgets but failed…
The thing denied me any way to change settings for my legacy widgets. Even the “editing HTML” mode doesn’t give me any way to directly edit whatever internal data structure they use.
I mean, I’m a coder and I don’t do rocket science on my website. I should be able to diagnose whatever problem happening, as long as the CMS doesn’t actively get in the way.
And Block Widget is such a system: it seems to be designed to get in your way and serve no other purpose.
A (temporary, but hopefully long enough) restoration of sanity!

I have finished the Korean translation for Classic Widgets

I have finished the Korean translation.
I just want to say thank you for developing such a good plugin.
And I hope it will be translated into more languages so that many WordPress users can use it conveniently.
Classic Widgets 한국어 번역을 모두 마쳤습니다.
좋은 플러그인을 개발해 주어서 고맙다는 인사를 전하고 싶습니다.
그리고 보다 많은 언어로 번역되어 많은 워드프레스 사용자들이 편리하게 사용할 수 있기를 바랍니다.

This is such a wonderful plugin. I felt lost with blocks taking over and I no longer had a say in how I wanted my widgets to be. I am so grateful that this plugin is still updated.

The gutenberg plugins simply don't work at all. It is an absolute disaster that was never tested whatsoever yet pushed to production. Glad we have this plugin to fix the mess as a temporary stopgap while finding a new CMS.
