    Hi guys,

    I am starting a version of my blog in a different language (arabic). In the admin area/appearance the side bar widget is really a pain in the neck, especially when i need to modify any widget code and i open it. check it here.

    Help guys. PLEAASE.

    Maybe the solution is to change its location to the left side? how can i do that?

    Are you running wordpress 3.5?

    Have you tried reducing the number of widgets on your widgetb-bar?

    Hi tomontoast,

    i am using WP 3.5.

    I don't have that many widgets really. it is just that wp is not really great for languages that are written right to left!!! like chinese and arabic

    do you have any idea on how to move the widget menu bar to the left? i guess this is the only solution

    I'm afraid I don't know. You could edit the source CSS code to move the bar but that is getting quite complicated. I will have a look whether to flag this up as a software bug.

    Could you provide another screenshot showing the location of the scrollbars and tell me what browser you are using.

    I hope this is what you asked for.

    I am not really great in css so i would be really reluctant to do it.

    you have to admit that wp isn't really great when it comes to right to left written languages like chinese or arabic.

    I guess the best option is to move the widget bar to the left like this one http://caspost.com/ar/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Screen-shot-2012-12-14-at-2.30.39-PM.png

    Does the editable area go outside the scrollable are of the browser?

    What browser are you using?

    More right to left writing developers are needed to test everything actually works!
