Ideas

Widgets and Sidebars should work like Menus

    We're working on Menus this round, and lessons learned from that should come back around to widgets.

    This is a wonderful idea, I completely agree, because of the pain when you have to remember and remake the widgets in a new theme. This idea, if implemented saves this work. Especially very good for someone who keeps on changing themes. This is a functionality that will make WordPress more dynamic.

  3. I proposed a Google Summer of Code project addressing this problem. It does go a different way, but solves the same thing.

    It is called "Widget Collections" and you can read the whole thing at my blog yrnxt.com/~121

    Maybe, if you give some feedback and the project gets approved for GSOC, you can use this functionality by the end of October!

    Agreed. Plus, widgets (especially text widgets) should look like any other WordPress post. The visual editor should be available so "real users" (who we show where the widgets are) don't have to understand all that HTML we have to put in to make the contents look good. Widgets should be visual, support short codes, allow images, etc.
