Widgets Button has disappeared from WordPress CMS Menu

If you are missing the Widget button in the Appearance section of the WordPress CMS there is something missing in your theme!

You need to add Sidebars to your theme. Since Widgets are (generally) displayed in sidebars you won’t see the Widgets button in your WordPress CMS if you don’t have Sidebars. In my case my theme had no sidebars intentionally, but when I wanted to use the amr shortcode any widget plugin to display widgets in the body content I was a little bit lost. Apparently I never used a theme without registered sidebars, even though in some themes we only used the full-width template.

Anyway: add this code to your theme’s functions.php

/**
 * Add sidebar so we can make widgets
 and display
 */
/*if (function_exists('register_sidebar')) {
    // Define Sidebar Widget Area 1
    register_sidebar(array(
        'name' => 'Widget Area', 
        'description' => 'We do not use sidebars in this theme but widgets are displayed in content.',
        'id' => 'widget-area-1',
        'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="%2$s">',
        'after_widget' => '</div>',
        'before_title' => '<h3>',
        'after_title' => '</h3>'
    ));
}*/

After refreshing the site you will see the Widgets Button has appeared
