Widgets make it so easy for everyone to drag and drop elements into different sidebars and widget ready areas of their websites. While working on our 最好的 WordPress 响应式主题 article, we noticed that most WordPress themes come with a lot of widget ready areas and sidebars. For example, there could be a top sidebar, right sidebar, left sidebar, footer widget areas, and so on. Now if you look at the widgets area in your WordPress admin screen, it would have a long list of widget areas where users can drag and drop widgets. That not only makes it super annoying but also it makes it very hard for beginners. In this article, we will show you how to improve WordPress widget management with Sane Widget Sidebars.
First thing you need to do is install and activate the Sane 小部件侧边栏 plugin. After activating the plugin, go to 外观 » 小部件 and you would notice a drop down menu above the Widget area. Now instead of showing all of your widget areas in one long column, you can choose which widget area or sidebar you want to edit from the drop down menu.
In WordPress 3.6, we saw the new and improved user interface for Menus administration screen. The author of Sane Widget Sidebars plugin (WebDevStudios team) has decided to contribute to the WordPress 3.8 release. The hope is that WordPress Widgets UI screen will see a refresh, so it is easy to use. See 他们的文章 for some early round screenshots.
