Can this plugin also insert post into widgets?

Not at this stage but if the feature is requested i can be enabled.

Why did you develop this plugin?

I developed this plugin because i found that i was writing HTML in text widgets and the sites needed to be edited by non technical people and inserting a page into a widget was the easiest way.

Reviews

Just as Expected

this plugin perfectly insert the pages to widget, works best with footer widget for me. So, i can managed the content with favourite page builder.

Works well, and helpful support

This is a great plugin, and made it much easier for me to create complex page structures yet still provide a usable update mechanism for my client. Love it.

I did have a problem for some months with this plugin apparently breaking other things and preventing other shortcodes from running (because disabling it or using an old version appeared to fix the presenting problem) and Jayde was helpful, letting me know each time a new version came out and asking if that fixed it. It turns out it must have been a ‘multi-factorial’ as, with recent updates to other plugins and WordPress itself, the problem has gone away.

Fantastic

Simply fantastic! I have been looking for something like this for days

AMAZING!

Works perfect! I’m just glad I searched for it. Don’t be fooled by low download count.
