The extremely annoying WordPress 4.8 and its Visual Editor in Text Widgets

Yes, it’s extremely annoying. It should be optional in the first place. Let’s wait for the WP guys to fix this issue once and for all. I hope WP 4.9 will make it optional, or just completely remove it. This. Is. So. Annoying.!!!

For the meanwhile, you can use this plugin:

Add Paragraphs Option to Text Widget

Or just wait for the future release of WordPress.

And nope. I am not alone. There are a lot of us:

And more. Oh please, Matt… for the sake of all the people of the universe, just disabled the visual editor in text widgets. T_T
