Allow Shortcodes in Text Widgets

This plugin provides the option to enable/disable the shortcodes in the default text widgets along with smilies.

I have set the option to parse smilies in the `parse shortcodes options` but they don't show up in the Text Widget

Make sure convert emoticons like :-) and :-P to graphics on display option is checked in the Settings->Writing option page. Also check and make sure you are using valid emoticons and that you are attempting to use shortcode in the default text widget provided by WordPress and not some other custom text widget provided by a different plugin.
