Lost widget and now I must pay?

One day my widget (I've only ever had one) disappeared from my home screen. When I went back into kwgt it asked me to pick a folder to store things in. I saw a Kustom folder existed in internal storage so I did that one. It then said I had to add a widget to start. So I added one where the old one was. To my delight, I was then able to then see in the app my old widget. So I tried to select it instead. But instead of being able to use it, it said I had to go pro! I'm thinking either this is a bug and you'll help me fix it, or you're hiding my own content behind a paywall. I'm really hoping it's the former of the two.
