Call Sidebars by Static Name, Not Dynamic Number
|Reported by:||dcole07||Owned by:|
When sidebars are call or referred to, it should be done by the (static) name given, not by the (dynamic) number when they get registered. If WordPress is going to stick with numbers, it should be like posts, where a (static) number is assigned for the life of the install. The problem with the current way, of referring to a sidebar by a number they get registered by WordPress, is that this number can change with the addition/subtraction of sidebars. That means the admin has to move and edit the widgets.
The widget arranger, as well as anything else that calls or references to Sidebars should use a static name for each sidebar, instead of a dynamic number.
