I was an early adopter of Wordpress, in 2004. It has come a long way, but the Widgets admin panel has not.
I have to make multiple (maybe 20-30+) sidebars for one site, and so I'm facing the prospect of duplicating 100+ widgets manually.
Is there a way to duplicate an entire existing (populated) Sidebar?
Second, does anyone know of a third party plugin that handles the Widget interface better than Wordpress? Working with 100+ widgets becomes impossible with the standard admin panel. As I said, Wordpress grew, but not this panel.
By now, I would have expected sidebar containers to be moveable. Even scalable.
Accessibility mode I find very slow going.
This plugin is a step in the right direction, but not all the way there: http://codecanyon.net/item/sidebar-widget-manager-for-wordpress/2287447
Again, does anyone know if a sidebar can be duplicated in its entirety? Even in MYSQL?
