How to add widgets to the page/post editing screen (2 posts)

    Hi All,

    I am looking for a plugin that would allow me to add widgets (mainly text boxes) on the right side or bottom of the post & page editor screen.

    The idea behind this is that I need to teach some users on how to use WordPress and I want them to have good tips on these areas. Also it would work as a quick reference on how to use short-codes from different plugins and how they are.

    I don't want to touch the code or CSS (I am not a developer), I would like this to be managed through a plugin that would not affect the content if Word-press or the plugin itself gets updated.

    Thanks a lot for your help on finding this!

    Fernando

    Hi Everybody, I found an old plugin very simple but does what I am looking for as a reference.

    Maybe someone knows another one with more flexibility and options?

    I am testing it with WordPress 3.8.1 and seems to work fine.

    The problem is that you can't use any HTML tag not even to do break lines...so its kind of TOO basic... :(

    Thanks!
