This plugin enables you to edit and display Content Blocks in a sidebar widget or using a shortcode.
The Custom Post Widget allows you to display the contents of a specific custom post in a widget on in the content area using a shortcode.
Even though you could use the text widget that comes with the default WordPress install, this plugin has some major benefits:
This plugin creates a 'content_block' custom post type. You can choose to either display the title on the page or use it to describe the contents and widget position of the content block. Note that these content blocks can only be displayed in the context of the page. I have added 'public' => false to the custom post type which means that it is not accessible outside the page context.
To add content to a widget, drag it to the required position in the sidebar and select the title of the custom post in the widget configuration.
