WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

hopefully someone more experienced can help me out with this idea I've got...

I'm working on a new theme, and I'd like this to be widgetised. I've done this before using the regular widgets/sidebar setup in the admin area, but this time I'd like the home page sidebar (the drag and drop part) to feature on my theme options page. Can anyone tell me how tough this would be? I would like access to the same set of widgets, but a drag and drop sidebar area which is laid out horizontally rather than vertically, so the user could choose widgets for , say, 3 columns.

I think this would make a cool interface for the administrator - if only I knew more..!

Many thanks, Dan.
