Is it possible to relocate the widget/sidebar meta boxes that normally appear at
Appearance > Widgets so that they appear as a meta box on a specific page's Page Edit dashboard page?
Here's what I'm trying to do in more detail:
Each page on my site is comprised of a group of widgets and static content
Every widget is registered via
Every page has a custom page template
Users should be able to edit all of a page's content from a single location -- the Page Edit screen.
However, currently users have to edit the static content on the Page Edit screen and the widget content at
Appearance > Widgets
I want to move the widget meta boxes so that they appear on their respective pages' Page Edit screen.
If possible, I'd like the widgets to "stay widgets" -- that is, to still create them with
register_sidebar() vs. creating custom meta boxes and saving custom meta box data. But I'd be open to alternatives if what I'm trying to do just isn't possible.
