Custom Post Widget

This plugin enables you to edit and display Content Blocks in a sidebar widget or using a shortcode.

  1. First you will have to upload the plugin to the /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  2. Then activate the plugin in the plugin panel. You will see that a new custom post type has been added called Content Block.
  3. Type some content for the widget. You can choose to either use the title to describe the content on the page, or to display it. Check 'Show Post Title' to display the title on the page.
  4. Go to 'Appearance' > 'Widgets' and drag the Content Block widget to the required position in the sidebar.
  5. Select a Content Block from the drop-down list.
  6. Check the 'Show Post Title' checkbox if you would like to display the title of your Content Block
  7. If you are experiencing issues with content being added automatically to your posts (Social media sharing buttons for instance), check the 'Do not apply content filters' checkbox. Use this with caution!
  8. Click save.
