WP HTML Grabber Plugin (1 post)

    Hi

    Just thought some may be interested, I have added a new plugin that allows you to include page elements dynamically from other URLs, using xPath.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/grabber-widget

    Currently this is designed as a sidebar widget, but I'll probably include a shortcode too if there's call for it.

    The idea is that if you are using other supporting bits of software, you can use these to provide the detailed back-end features, but to include only the smaller sections you want on your blog.

    I'd be interested in making it even more adaptable, allowing the user to specify more detailed HTML manipulation before it ends up on the page, and potentially allowing users to specify multiple elements to include, and allowing for parsing of remote script blocks to compliment the retrieved HTML etc.

    Thanks
    Leo
