Severity: major Version:
Component: Widgets Keywords: needs-patch
Focuses: ui Cc:


Current version: 5.8-beta3-51224, Theme: Twenty Twenty One Default. Local Install
Issue existed for the very previous nightly version too

Description: Gutenberg blocks doesn't work properly in the widgets section.

Steps to reproduce:
1: Appearance -> Widgets
2: Remove all the existing blocks in the Footer widget
3: Click on 'Add new block' -> ' Browse All'

Current Result: No blocks list available for the user, or the sometimes last used blocks only.
Current Images: No blocks available by default No blocks even when searching for

Expected Result: Entire block lists available for the user to choose from.

The same issue exists for the inactive widget column also.

If the user does not clear the existing blocks in the footer, everything works as expected except the inactive widget section.

Hi @alanjacobmathew,

Welcome to Trac, and thanks so much for this great report.

This was previously reported in #53460, so I'm going to close this out as a duplicate. That ticket was also closed, but with the reported-upstream resolution. Progress is now being tracked over on
