#32922 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Dashboard Widget API Widget Sorting

Reported by: atomicjack Owned by:

In the Dashboard Widget API, it is stated that sorting of widgets is not currently possible.

Could we please have this ability to sort widgets brought into the API?

This could work by setting an order_id on the widgets, where 1 = top widget, and so on, with the admin theme setting how many is displayed per row.

P.S Apologies if this has already been suggested, I did search but didn't find anything.

Hi, @atomicjack !

Thank you for the report!
I'm so sorry it's taken this long for a response to your ticket.

It was discussed during triage today.

In #42791, context and priority arguments were added, and the docs can be found here.

After discussion, it was decided to close this ticket as a duplicate of that one, since it seems like this might solve the problem.

If not, apologies! Please feel free to comment back if it doesn't solve the issue you are having, and re-open this ticket with a description of the problem you're trying to solve.

Thanks again!
