Secondary HTML Content

Description

Add unlimited extra HTML content blocks to pages, posts, and custom post types. A perfect solution for layouts with distinct content “blocks”, such as a sidebar or multi-column view. When editing content, the secondary editors appear beneath the usual editor.

Name the new content blocks anything, and assign each block to any of your site’s public post types. Hierarchical post types, like pages, can optionally inherit their content from ancestors (including their parent page); perfect for section wide sidebars. Each block can individually be customized to offer media buttons and the full or more stripped down version of the editor.

Secondary content can be added to your site by using the Secondary HTML Content widget. Theme developers can also call secondary blocks by using the built in functions (see “Installation”).

REQUIRES WordPress 3.3 or newer.

Is this plugin outdated?

I love this plugin, I have used it on a lot of wordpress sites. It worries me that I get an error message in my error log that says "The called constructor method for WP_Widget is deprecated Use __construct() instead". What I don't understand that see __construct() in the widget, but I still get that error message. Can anyone shed light on this?

Works as stated but...

Works as stated - my only issue is that the content in these blocks does not show up in WP Search results.
