Sane Widget Sidebar Management
Calling them Sidebars (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I really like the look of this plugin, but the one issue I have is that they're called 'Sidebars'. While I guess that's what they're technically called, none of my less technical users are going to associate 'Header Right' with a 'Sidebar'.

    In my opinions 'Select a Widget Area to Edit' and 'Select Widget Area', would be more appropriate strings.

    This might sound incredibly nitpicky, but I work with a lot of users are are very very inexperienced with these sorts of things, and you'd be surprised by what confuses them sometimes.

    Cheers,
    Jacob

    Hey Jacob,

    I think you might be interpreting the plug-in wrong.
    It doesn't change the name of the "widget areas" (ie. Header Right, Primary Sidebar, Footer Widget, etc.).

    Then name is defined in the theme or your functions file.

    This merely creates the dropdown so the end user can select quickly the area they want to add a new widget to. Mostly for those sites that have tons of sidebars for different pages or areas. The main graphic might be a bit deceiving.

    Nah I'm not making that mistake, I'm literally just referring to the labels for the dropdown.

    Like I said, super nitpicky.

    Regardless, it's good feedback for the plugin, and I've filed an issue on GitHub for its consideration.
