Does the job right

Needed a simple widget to display some custom fields somewhere on my website. So added the relevent PHP and it just works as expected. Easy to use.

Still Working on 4.9.x

I’ve been using this for a very long time on one of my sites when I needed to jerry rig a solution together to display different ad groups on posts based on their category.

I’ve had no issues and it’s still working in 2018!

good plugin

We use this plugin on most of the sites we build. I’m concerned that it hasn’t been updated in a while, but it seems to still work just fine.

Perfect but…

“Do not output before/after_widget/title” works exactly the way I want.
This is a perfect widget for my project, but… 2 years without update? Come on…
