Using the Widget Block Editor w Vantage Theme

Vantage seems to disable the new Widget Block Editor. I’ve confirmed it’s not another plugin – I can get the Widget Block Editor functionality by switching to another theme.

I don’t see any use of

remove_theme_support( 'widgets-block-editor' )
in functions.php, so I can’t modify that with a child theme (I already use a child theme to add a couple of other functions, it’s not at fault either).

I’d REALLY like to have this functionality, but I’ve no idea why it’s not there.
Is there a way to get it back?

    Hi, thanks for reaching out.

    Vantage opts out of the Widgets Block Editor interface. You can opt back in by adding the following to the Code Snippets plugin or a child theme or custom plugin if you’re making use of one of those:

    add_filter( 'siteorigin_settings_disable_new_widget_area', '__return_false' );

    A Code Snippets import file has been added to the theme documentation:
