Description

Hi,

I have noticed that when trying to create and manage widgets in the classic editor using the view; appearance => widgets, that when you attempt to display the widget on the front-end of the website using dynamic_sidebar('sidebar-name'), that for some reason the widget does not display.

This only happens with brand new widget areas that have had no previous widgets assigned to them.

I then added a new widget to the same widget area in the customizer => widgets view, and the widget then displayed using dynamic_sidebar('sidebar-name'). This then showed both widgets added to the area, the widget i assigned in appearance => widgets, and the new one i just assinged in customizer => widgets. To be clear these widgets were exactly the same in both widget used and content assigned.

after doing this through the customizer, then adding another widget to the widget area in the appearance => widgets view, the updates are displaying on the front-end as you would expect.

I am using self-hosted a self-hosted WordPress website.

The widget I was trying to add to my website was a custom widget that, that followed the documentation in https://codex.wordpress.org/Widgets_API to the letter.
