Homepage missing Widget option


I dont seem to be able to add widgets to my homepage. I have my website setup with the front page as static.

I can add widgets to the homepage from within the appearance / widgets section of wordpress (…wp-admin/widgets.php) but I do not have the option within the appearance / customise / widgets menu. Please see screenshot.

No widgets appear on the homepage when viewing (if i have added them using the first method).


Hi J,

I hope you are well today and thanks for posting here.

I have tested it on my test site and confirmed it’s displaying when the homepage (Page) template is actually being used and that page is set as static Front page.

Best Regards,
