Dear Programmers of WordPress and PHP:
I agree with Debigirl,
Please listen to writers and end users and not your perspective. Had her request been read correctly and thoroughly the point might not have been missed.
Offering up techno babble responses that require too much tech savvy AND don't address the need are why many of us don't even bother with the forums.
We who are not techie or who don't want to be programmers just want to be able to put widgets directly into our pages and posts without knowing about divs, programming, dealing with sidebars, php, etc.
Must be the different sides of the brain thing.
Here is an example. I have specific widgets for my travel page. I want to create a sub page that is just about about booking travel. I want to have a late flight widget on that page (not in the sidebar because the main travel page already has travel related widgets), a currency converter widget, and distance calculator widget. Why can't this just be inserted in the WYSWYG visual editor somewhere or somehow like YouTube embeds, etc.?
I might want to write a post about traveling in Hungary and put their tourism dept's widget in the post. Same question.
Please don't respond back with instructions like the ones above. I won't know how to find where to do it or understand what you're talking about.
If a solution is more complicated than copying and pasting a widget into the sidebar, uploading an image, or creating a page, then assume we can't do it.
This non techie but creative user thanks you.
