Notes PostWidgets

Description

Please note! Developement of this plugin has been suspended. I would recommend my newer plugin
WP Editor Widget instead. WP Editor Widget adds
a WYSIWYG widget using the built in WP Editor without adding a custom post type.

Notes PostWidgets is a plugin which adds a custom post type (“Post Widgets”)
that you can use to create text widgets with. This way you can use the built in
WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor to set the mark up on your widgets.
You can set a custom CSS class name for each widget for more specific mark up.

The plugin probably works fine with 2.9 but has not been tested. It uses custom
posts which was introduced in 2.9 so lower versions will not work.

FAQ

How can I style my widgets?

The widgets are styled by the themes just like regular widgets. For additional styling you can sett the “Container class” to a class name of your choice.
This class name will be used on the DIV tag that contains everything inside the widgets.

Example:

<style>
.my-class-name { background-color: black; color: white; }
.my-class-name h2.widgettitle { color: pink; }
</style>
