Like the Text widget, but also allows working PHP code to be inserted.
UPDATED TO FIVE STARS: FIXED my own code; SEE COMMENTS in three star section -- Alex. Use mysqli, not mysql.
This widget is great for simple php code and I recommend it. But I get mixed and even inconsistent results making read or write calls to my hosted server mysql database. I'm using the twentyeleven theme.
The same script that executes great in a standalone test.php in my browser may run in a PHP Code Widget, or it may run OK but break the sidebar below the insertion point, or it may not run at all.
A single database call seems to work better than multiple calls in the same script or multiple scripts in successive PHP Code widgets.
In fairness, I've been coding in Perl and mysql for years (very helpful) but I've only been picking up PHP more recently. I can provide code samples, but not sure this is the right forum for that.
Any common experience, comment or suggestions? Thanks!
I use this helpful plugin so often that I almost take it for granted! This functionality should just be included as standard. Thanks so much.
Does what it promises to do!
Great and useful plugin
Extremely useful for me as a non-developer with a basic knowledge of php.
I use it together with widget logic and it works great!
But my code is fine!
No, it's not. Really. (...sad but true...)
This is one of the BEST plugins i've come across. So long as you know your basic sh*t this is a real lifesaver! *bows to developer*
Nice, I wanted the Meteor Slider php code in a custom header widget and with this plugin I was able to manage it! Thank you for developing.
Just drop the php+html code and works
