Duplicate Widget

Version: 1.0.2 A widget that can act as a duplicate of another widget (for synchronized use in another sidebar)

What happens to the duplicate(s) of a widget when that widget gets deactivated or deleted?

When a widget gets deactivated (dragged to the "Inactive Widgets" section of the widgets admin page) or deleted, all of its duplicates get deleted. The plugin provides numerous cues to make you aware of what widgets have duplicates.

Why can't I see a newly added widget as an option in a duplicate widget's dropdown?

If a widget is newly activated, any existing active duplicate widgets will not have it listed in their dropdowns immediately. Either a page reload must occur or the duplicate widget must be saved (which causes the widget to be retrieved via AJAX and thus the dropdown is regenerated).

Can a widget be duplicated into another sidebar on the same page (so it'll appear twice on the page)?

Yes.
