New WordPress Widget UI Suggestion (2 posts)

    I really don't like the new WordPress widget UI. Since there are now four columns - two for the widgets and two for the widget areas - I find myself constantly having to grab a widget from way down the page and drag it up to the widget area where I want to put it. So annoying.

    Why was the interface changed? The previous setup was so much easier to use. Is there any way we could allow users to select the type of widget setup they want to use? This is driving me crazy.

    You can now click a widget without dragging and a menu will appear where you can add the widget to the sidebar want.

    Here's what might be included in 3.9:
