Admin Sticky Widget Areas

by Sridhar Katakam

Overview


This plugin fixes the widget areas on WordPress widgets page on the admin backend so they always remain in view when scrolling up/down.

It will greatly reduce the time and effort in having to hold widgets and drag a long distance up and down.

Set to work from 481px and above i.e., only when the widget areas appear on the right side, in a column.

If you do not wish to use the plugin and want to temporarily achieve the same sticky widgets, bring up your browser’s dev tools and add this CSS to the widgets page:

@media only screen and (min-width: 481px) {

    .widget-liquid-right {
        position: -webkit-sticky;
        position: sticky;
        top: 42px;
    }

}
