I am building a theme that allows widgets to be dragged & dropped, essentially turning WP into a desktop-like environment where the admin controls what "apps" are available via the widget panel.
This is going reasonably well, except that it would be nice is if there were a way for the admin to store starting locations for all of the widgets (and presumably, more meta-data later)
In practical terms, this means I want 2 custom fields to appear on each widget in the admin panel, and then for there to be a hook to spit that data out when the widgets are printed on the page (in my case as some inline style values).
I am building this "desktop" using home.php
I am not sure if wordpress is actually built to do this, but it seems vaguely plausible. Any thoughts? Thanks!
