Adding a widget to my plugin (3 posts)

    I have a plugin that uses a shortcode to allow people to place multiple RSS feeds on their wordpress site (sorted, categorized, etc). Some people have asked me for a widget to do the same thing. My question is can I do this without putting together a completely new plugin, but rather extend the plugin I already have? In other words, is it possible to register a widget within the folder of another plugin (thus allowing me, for example, to provide an option to my users to simply check a box or something and this will activate the widget)?
    Thanks

    Hi.
    Yes, of course, you can do that from your current plugin.
    See these tutorials for more detailed info.
    Cheers!
