Widget. It’s got a widget. A lovely widget. A widget it has got.

(With apologies to Jack Dee).

Just did a quick revamp of the sidebar of this blog using WordPress’s new Widgets Plugin – and I’ve got to same I’m impressed!

As it’s really really new there’s a couple of plugins that are missing from the sidebar, but I’m sure that they’ll get fixed soon (hint hint!)..

Using ajax/dhtml style goodness with Javascript it suddenly becomes fairly trivial to insert, re-arrange, remove or otherwise modify your sidebar. As more plugins get converted to widgets I predict this is going to be a big boost for making WordPress even easier to use. Nice work guys!
