There are some themes that uses coloured primary sidebars with widget text font set to white. In such cases this widget doesn’t shows up any text (or you may say that text goes invisible), because most post content areas has white backgrounds.

For Example: Twenty Fourteen, the new default WordPress theme has main sidebar’s widget font set to white and Add Widget After Content plugin uses the default widget area fonts and styles. Hence, the widget text goes off as same color schemes are applied on after post content area.

Well, in such cases you should either change the default color scheme of your theme’s widget areas or activate some other WordPress theme or simply deactivate this plugin and use this alternative.
