This should be a good feature for askbot sites - Serves for - Site announcements, NEWS, META and site-maintenance updates.
I've just started working on this feature. I need your inputs and thoughts.
There is already a way to customize sidebar on most pages on the site; look under "Static Content, URLS & UI" in the Askbot settings module (requires administrator login):
For example, I have added a simple box to my Askbot-powered site:
It's not the most user-friendly interface, and this probably is not an ideal situation for e.g., displaying a list of the most recent posts on a blog or meta site (you'd have to remember to manually update the list in the sidebar every time you made a new post).
But it might be a good workaround until a more fleshed-out widget admin interface is implemented.
