    Hey Ollie,

    just updated to 4.8 but now my individual sidebars for categories are not displyed in frontend.

    They are still displayed under "widgets" in WP Admin but now on all categories the standard sidebar is shown.

    Would be great if you may help soon.

    Best

    PS: On Sites it is still working! BR

    But also the "Customizer" under Menu "Deisgn" View of Wordpress isnt working any longer. So maybe a little bigger issue.

    Thanks anyway!

    Hey guys, I've tracked down the bug. I've attached the file you need to replace - replace it on your server here:

    yoursite.com/wp-content/themes/gonzo/includes/widget_areas.php

    I know there are other tickets still left to do but I allocated 2 hours for support today and finding that silly bug took up all that time. I'll respond to the other tickets in the coming days. 

    Attached files:  widget_areas.php

    Hi, after replacing the file as told, the categories sidebars are working perfectly again, but the sidebar in the homepage has moved to the end of the page! please help!

    UPDATE: well, I just found out all the widgets in the home sidebar had moved to a footer. So that was it
