after the most recent WordPress 5.8 update, I suddenly only get a white screen when I try to access the standard WordPress widgets (image below).


What's worse, I cannot edit any pages that make use of the standard WordPress widgets (image below).


Does anyone know how to fix this annoying issue? It means that I can’t work on, update or edit my projects. 

Thanks a lot.

I have a similar problem.

I have:
Elementor version 3.3.1
Elementor Pro version 3.3.4
and the pages and Elementor editor is working proper but I also have  just a blank Widgets page, nothing is displayed.

I deactivated plugin by plugin and found that Redux framework is the issue.

Another solution is to install Classic widhets plugin, It will be supported and maintained until at least 2022, and we hope all other plugins addapt to this 5.8 version of WP .in this time


 blank Widgets page.

My fix,

Yes it works, but instaling another plugin, which has support until 2022, is not FIX.

From experiences from many diferent websites I am usinga the problem is with non compatible theme and not Elementor.

So fixing is only done by updating the theme.
