    initial v1  
    11Far too late to say so, but I really fail to see how this was a bug. Assigning widgets to "Inactive Widgets" when they could not be allocated to an active sidebar by matching IDs? Perfectly logical. Surely people understand that WordPress isn't psychic? No, instead we have some brute force to fit them into active sidebars - even if it means the "Logged In Users Only Sidebar" items get shunted into "Home Page Only Sidebar".

    3 If one theme has a special "404 page sidebar", then why assume it has an equivalent in every theme? If users are expected to move things around, how "In The Wrong Place" widgets safer than widgets that don't show until they've been taken out from "Inactive Widgets" and put in the appropriate place?

    55I doubly fail to see why it warranted the creation of a set of auto-expiring backups, and the whole thing trying to second-guess whether you wanted the old widgets or the new widget positions.
