The new widget dialog that controls on what pages/posts the widget appears disappeared with WP5

I am specifically using the recent posts widget, and I had it set to appear only on blog posts. With the update to WP5 it’s appearing everywhere and when I delete it and re-enable the widget there is no dialog for where it appears… I’ve disabled all other plug-ins.

Is this a known issue with the Sydney theme?

Hello there,

Did you use a special plugin to only display the widget on blog posts?

In fact someone from reddit helped me, it was Jetpack (that I had uninstalled) that gave me the ability.

Great!

Please let us know in a new topic if you have any further questions, or if we can provide you with any other assistance.
