Describe your idea in detail: Customize module position maker GUI plugin
I’m working with WordPress since over year, when I’m using it I had a problem to make new position for its widgets and plugins. So if someone wants to make new position in current WP theme we can use this plugin to create that position. Easily he can customize those position using this GUI based plugin .due to this kind of plugin We can do famous WordPress and FOSS more than today. Not only that it will reduce weakness of WordPress has.
This is an idea I’ve come up with: I tried to make new php and XML based GUI plugin to make this happen
Plugin, theme, or core: this is meant to exist as a plugin or to be included in the core of WordPress as a patch.
