Custom Post Widget
[resolved] Option to enter a different widget title (3 posts)

    Hi Johan,

    Would you consider adding a new "Title" field to the Content Block widget, which lets me type in my own title to use on the widget?

    I know that the widget already has a check-box for "Show Post Title", which will use the title of the content block itself as the widget title.

    However sometimes I need to use a different title on the widget, than the title of the content block itself. Particularly if I need the content block to appear in multiple places on my website, with a different title, or perhaps if I'm using the content block title as an internal descriptive label for myself, instead of as a true title.

    So I think it would be great if the widget would allow for either option: there should still be a check-box for "Show Post Title", but also another check-box or field to let me type in my own title instead, which overrides the Post Title.

    I've seen other widgets that let you type in your own title for each widget, and that's always a useful feature for me. What do you think?

    Sorry, but I want to keep this plugin as simple as possible so I won't be adding this field.

    You could of course always include your alternative title in the content. Just use the appropriate heading tag or add a specific style for this in your stylesheet.

    I've written an unobtrusive way of handling this. See here. Allows for complete customisation without overcomplicating the plugin.
