List Widget


This plugin makes a widget available which allows you to quick add a simple text list (bulleted or numbered) to a sidebar.


  • Widget editing interface.
  • How the widget appears in the default theme.


Install this plugin in the usual way, by downloading and unzipping the folder into your plugins directory (/wp-content/plugins).

The plugin then needs to be activated before it can be used.

To use, simply drag the ‘List’ widget into a sidebar. To use the widget, your theme must be widget-enabled.


Can I add more than 10 items?

At the moment, no. This might be introduced in a future version, but for now, 10 is your limit. It seems like a sensible limit, too. Who wants to read more than 10 things in a list anyhow? If your list is longer than this, then perhaps you should ask yourself whether it can be cut down…

How do I style the list?

You can style your list by adding the following code to the style.css file in your chosen theme:

/* Styles for List Widget */
sidebar .list_widget ol li {} /* Style for ordered list item */
