You're awesome!
By , for WP 3.5.2

When dealing with some clients, most want things to display in VERY SPECIFIC areas of their site (one of my clients wanted the 'welcome user' to display in a VERY specific area outside of normal settings) - I try to avoid PHP in pages as much as possible (I do love the plugins 'PHP Snippets' & 'Insert PHP'), but I knew I could do this simpler, so I decided to use your plugin in conjunction with the 'Widgets on Pages' plugin to put the welcome in the EXACT place my client wanted the welcome to show.

This was the only plugin to work the way it was intended to (ex: other plugins had PHP comments & code not displaying on occassion, conflicting PHP due to plugin incompatibility, etc).

In addition, I didn't have to go back and adjust other plugin settings - something that is usually the result of conflicting code due to individual's writing/scripting how they understand). In the real world when you have a ton of clients as a small business owner, it's not time-efficient to do so and could cost you in the long run.

MUCH THANKS for this simple, yet effective plugin!
