How to change Links widget names as seen in admin panel? (2 posts)

    I have multiple instances of the links widget in sidebars, and would like to change the widget names as they appear in the admin panel.

    I'm using the Display Widgets plugin which allows me to display different widgets in the sidebars of different pages, so instead of one single blogroll with all my links, I have several blogrolls by link category showing up in different places... the problem is, unless I open each one, all I see in the widget section of the admin panel on my sidebars is:


    So, for example, let's say I have these pages: Cats, Dogs, Bunnies. And I have a link category for Cats, one for Dogs, and one for Bunnies. I'm using one links widget that shows the Dogs link category, and it's showing up on the sidebar of the Dogs page, but not the other pages. Likewise, I have a links widget for only the Cats link category, and the same for Bunnies.

    In the widgets section of the admin panel, I'd like to see:


    so that I don't need to open each one to find the one I'm looking for if I need to move or alter it. (And I have a lot more than three, so it's a big pain).

    Does anyone know how I could do this?

    Also, to be clear: I'm using the standard WordPress links widget... the Display Widgets plugin just allows me to choose where the widgets appear.
