[resolved] Text widget does not parse php (3 posts)

    Hi all! There is a calendar script I wish to use, but I would like to use it in a sidebar widget or any widget for that fact.

    So I figured I could edit the header.php to call for ther style sheet and other javascript and then I could just simply drop a text widget into the side bar and add the code to call for the calendar to show up. However when I did this the php code did not parse so therefore no calendar showing up where I want it to.

    So, is there a workaround for working with the widgets??? I know how to insert it manually into a "copied" template or into the body of a page, but I would really like to load it into a widget using area.

    All help appreciated...Thank you

    peace out,

    Consider downloading and installing Otto's PHP Code Widget, then put code in one of those widgets.

    Just to let you know that a very nice person over at EPC wrote a nice widget today just for that particular calendar and it worked perfectly!!! He will be refining it so it has more options but look for it soon.

    Thank you michael for your reply!

    peace out,
