I see you stick with that godawful widget screen from 2.5 and 2.6, where I have to remove, then add again, losing all the settings.
Pat on the back.
It’s the main sticking point for 8 of my wordpress users, and combined they run about 20 blogs.
All of them were willing to wait for 2.7 and an improved widget area.
Seeing this (I have it installed on a test blog for them to play with) the first reaction was “Not going to upgrade to that one, either”
So here I am, looking for an alternative blogging platform, because I know where it’s heading with my guys. They’re done. They want to switch to something else now.
The admin screen has improved slightly, but it’s the widget area they liked in 2.3.1 (I did too) with the nice drag and drop, and having all widget areas visible at once.
Grab a widget from Bar1 and drag it to Bar2 – done.
2.5-2.7 has killed that functionality completely.
On top of this, one of my users just managed to add all the widgets to the HEADER. She told me she had Sidebar1 selected, but that’s not where they went.
She changed the dropdown, yes. But I’m guessing she didn’t hit “Show” after. So while she thought she was adding it all to Sidebar1 (because that’s what showed in the dropdown), it was still adding everything to the header.
Since she could only see 1 bar at a time, she had no idea where the widgets were going.
Wow. Talk about screwed up.
