Movable Elements in the Widgets Page
|Reported by:||dcole07||Owned by:||dcole07|
It's hard to make a widgets management page that is to everyone's liking, but it'd be easier to please people if we allowed then to customize the Widgets page a little. This same kind of functionality is already in the Post and Pages editor pages.
I think we should allow them to set a maximum number of widget columns the Available Widgets and Inactive Widgets will expand to. Then allow the sidebars (Widget Areas) to fill the available space, meaning they could have two sidebar columns if they wanted.
It'd also be nice if people could swap the position of the sidebars and the two widget holding sections.
This could likely be done with a plugin, but it'd be nice if it was added to core. The options could be hidden away in the Screen Options tab along with the Enable Accessibility Mode.
Does anyone want to own this ticket and create the patch? I'm for someone else doing it, but I could end up doing it if no one else will. I'll take ownership until someone else steps forward.
