Use 2.3 Widget Management in 2.5 (2 posts)

    LEGACY WIDGETS!

    Many people have been upset with the new 2.5 widget management, especially the lack of drag and drop between sidebars. So I found a way to use the old 2.3 interface inside of 2.5.

    NOTE:
    1. Use this to arrange your widgets only.
    2. No changes to the widgets will be saved.
    3. This does not replace the 2.5 page, just supplements it.
    4. This is a hack, not a plugin currently.

    Just download these files and upload/replace in the appropriate directories! To use, just navigate to: http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin/widgets2.php

    DEVELOPMENT HELP! I'd like to make a new sub-menu link to this "Legacy Widgets" page, but I don't know how! Any help would be appreciated! I also don't know how to make this a plugin.

    But for the time being, enjoy using the old interface with 2.5! Woo!
