How can I change the order of widgets in the dashboard widget page? (3 posts)

    I am creating new widget areas in my child theme, and it's bumping them all to the top. is there a way to specify which order they appear on the widget page. I want my main widgets at the top then my template specific widgets at the bottom of the list. Is this possible?

    This used to be possible, but I noticed I can't drag mine where I want them since 3.5 maybe this will be fixed in 3.6
    Or if someone knows better please respond.

    If it was possible then there has to be a hack to allow me to do it. I don't really want draggability, I want a hard coded positioning system as when I finish my template designs I'm making an admin pluggin so I will comment each widget area as I plan to have 20 templates with this theme. utilising different sets of widgets. Any solution would be good at the moment though, as It's not good to have my least important widget at the top of the list.
