I'm working on a custom widget. When on the widgets.php page in the admin area (so not the front-end) of the WP site I want to dynamically get the sidebarname of the current sidebar inside my widget. So when my widget is dragged into a sidebar you can see a little heading that says: ' This is MyWidget in the sidebarname ' .
The form() function from the widgetAPI only recieves one parameter: $instance. I can't see how it's possible to recieve the sidebarname from this. On the frontend you can easily see but here I can only get a list of all sidebars that exist.
Does someone know if it's possible and how to achieve this?
Thanks in advance!
edit: I found this question from someone who wants the same: How to determine the current widget's parent container (sidebar widget id)
