Hi everyone,

I want a simple admin panel similar to blogger (see the video below). What I'm thinking is when someone wants to design a page they will be taken in a page similar in the video.

Does BE.Net allow you to control the location of the widget and the display order?


Let me know if my question doesn't make sense, and I'll try to clarify it.

Thanks in advance.

When you're on the homepage and logged in as an admin, each widget has a little "Move" link above it.  If you click on "Move", it'll display a dropdown list of the available positions you can move the widget to ... within the widget zone.

It's not for controlling the whole site layout.  It's limited to moving widgets within each widget zone.  Typically a widget zone is the sidebar on the blog.  You can have multiple widget zones on your site, however ... each widget zone containing 1 or more widgets.

Otherwise, to control the overall site layout, that involves manually moving around (copy/paste) the HTML in the site.master file in your theme folder.
