FAQ

Aren’t there already other plugins that do this?

Probably, but I couldn’t find any quickly and decided to write the plugin myself using the new WordPress 2.8 Widgets API. It only took me about 30 minutes to write so it was easier for me to just do it myself then search around for the same plugin features.
