    Thank you for your feature request.

    The “Widgets” page indeed could need some more work in WordPress Core, but it seems unlikely now that the focus is to move all functionality to the Customizer. There have also been talks about removing the page completely from WordPress.

    There is not really any API to put in extra functionality or manipulate the order of the sidebars on the page, but I will see if it is an easy task to do.

    Can I ask how many sidebars you manage?

    Currently 20, but will be much more. See For every main menu item the sidebars will change left/right. Also the header slideshow will be different for the mainpages and specific for some or more posts.

    Although sorting is not possible the filter option helps also. Could it be that the widget page sorts the sidebars on internal ID or something which can be changed?

    Right now the content aware sidebars are “registered” by date, but yes it would be possible to do it by another key.

    Do you want to be able to sort all sidebars, or only the content aware ones?
