Spectacu.la Page Widget

Widget that lets you output the content of a page in any place that'll accept a widget and allows you to hide said page from navigation (wp_list_

The install
  1. Upload spec-page-widget.php and lang/. to /wp-content/plugins/spec-page-widget/ or /wp-content/mu-plugins/ directory. If the directory doesn't exist then create it.
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. You should now see the widget show up under 'widgets' menu. Drop that widget into a sidebar.
  4. With the widget in the sidebar you should see the config for this widget.
The config
  1. First select the page you'd like to show.
  2. If you want a title to show tick the show title option. This makes two more options available, 'link title' and 'alternative title'. If you want to link to source or use another title enter them in this new area.
  3. Next we have an option to use an excerpt rather than the full content. By default WordPress won't let you create an excerpt for pages so one will be generated unless you've used another plugin to create an excerpt in which case that'll be used.
  4. Hide the page from the normal WordPress list of pages. This lets you to remove links to that page from other parts of WordPress that use the wp_list_pages() call. If you have two of these widgets both calling the same page then hiding the page in one will hide it in all.
  5. Finally hit save.
