    What is the best way to display the Full Content of a specific Custom Post Type post in a content block. I've been testing several Plugins to attempt this using Widgets.

    Optional: I would love to be able to display some Custom Meta Fields in the same block.

    Any ideas?

    @katart17 from your post, I can't tell if you are asking how to place the content, or how to query the content, or both?

    I guess I didn't explain myself too clearly. I want to display Title, Content and some Custom Meta Data from a Custom Post Type using a widget. I can easily do this with Query Posts in the template, but I'm looking for a good Widget that will do the same thing for my clients to turn on/off display of certain Custom Post Types (in my case - Testimonials is the Custom Post Type).

    I ended up using a Plugin called Multiple Content Blocks by Trendwerk. It works fine for now.
