Usability problem on the Widgets admin interface
|Reported by:||vteixeira||Owned by:||azaozz|
On the widgets page, when I have lots of widgets available it's a nightmare to drag and drop one by one on the intended sidebar.
I have to scroll down and up the page while keeping the mouse button pressed.
When someone is using a Notebook and no mouse it's really a pain.
And with all that netbooks today it's even worse.
What I think could be done: just put a toggle button (like the dashboard widgets) on each widget and when someone press this toggle button it opens a menu with some links like: add to sidebar 1, add to sidebar 2,...
This would really be a usability improvement since it's not usable the way it is now.
And off course the drag and drop doesn't need to be replaced. People should be able to use it either way.
If you have a big monitor, go for drag and drop since you should be able to view all your available widgets on multiple columns without the need to scroll down the page.
Otherwise just click the toggle and Add to sidebar.
