#20326 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Widget dropped in sidebar with name=sidebar-two shows up in sidebar with id=sidebar-two (and different name: some-other-name)

Reported by: ruudjoyo's profile ruud@… Owned by:

reproducing steps:
register 2 sidebars:

sidebar 1:
id = 'sidebar-one'
name = 'sidebar-two'

sidebar 2:
id = 'sidebar-two'
name = 'some-other-name'

drop a widget in sidebar 1, and it will also after reloading the widget page show up in sidebar 2...

Also: widgets dropped in sidebar 2 disappear.

OK, OK, i shouldn't be mixing up sidebar names and ids like i did (sorry), am going to change that in my setup now, I just wanted to point out that I thought that assigning a widget to a sidebar was related to its id only. This current behavior strikes me a little strange :)

Thanks for the report. This is way late, but I don't think this is a big deal.
