Hackadelic Discreet Text Widget


When you use a shortcode in a text widget to dynamically create its content, the shortcode may yield empty content in some contexts, leaving you with an ugly looking empty widget in your sidebar with nothing more than a title and a blank rectange.

What you want is a text widget that will only show up when it does have content. This is such a widget.

A use case when you will immediately benefit from Discreet Text Widget is when you want a Table of Contents in the sidebar.
