I’d just like to show you one more improvement in WordPress 2.8 and then I’ll stop. Promise!
With older versions of WordPress you can only see one sidebar at a time in the widget panel. For those of you with just one sidebar, this wasn’t a problem. But for the rest of us it was a pain to select the sidebar from the drop-down box. Plus there were always those exiting moments when you thought you were working on the left sidebar, when in fact, you’d been working on the right sidebar. Those days are gone, my friends. WordPress 2.8 shows you all the sidebars at once.
