Easy to use once you get it.
By ,

I was a bit confused first until I realised it's using custom posts, in this case called 'content blocks'. Works very well. It's supposed to work with WPML, haven't tried that yet but will find out soon enough.

Helping me make my client sites managable
By , for WP 3.5.2

I love this plugin, I use it on most sites I create as I am able to explain content blocks easier than widgets. I use it for recurring content as well as enabling my clients to update sections of their site in one spot.

Thank you and well done.

Also works well within the gravity forms 'notifications' section.

Fabulous Plugin and Very Responsive Author
By , for WP 3.4.2

This is a really great plugin and the author is incredibly responsive to bug fixes. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Brilliant!
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plug-in solved a headache nagging me for weeks:

The power to widgetize custom text and images allows display of more than one unique sidebar on the same page--or even more than one custom widget in the same sidebar.

I was a bit leery of "content block" [a new term]. No problem--it's easier done than said. There's nothing TO it, you just DO it!

Many thanks from a delighted fan, Anna

A Plugin I Use Every Time
By , for WP 3.5.2

I love this plugin! It makes it so easy to re-use content in various places and makes it easier for non-techies to update. Did I mention I love it?

Best I've found
By ,

The flexibility this plugin offers makes it so easy to achieve things no other plugin can do.

My only niggle is how long it takes to get a support question answered.

Deceptively useful
By , for WP 3.5.1

For me this helps turn WordPress into a really flexible CMS (not unlike Joomla) if used along with a condition widget plugin, you've have lots of flexibility about where widgets appear and what they contain, in a very user friendly way.

Good work!
