Content manage those little snippets of text that you need across your WordPress site and in widgets properly. Forget the text widget.
Here at interconnect/it we have a policy of developing client sites with the premise of "content manage everything!" That means the little notices on sites, minor widgets and so on should not only be content managed, but they should be easy for both an end-user and a developer to work with.
To that end, we developed Spots. This creates a custom post type that allows you to create widgets using a visual editor, whilst also giving developers an easy hook for the creation of content managable elements within a theme.
The plugin now uses caching in order to help ensure that the load on a typical site is kept to a minimum. Performance is important!
The plugin is prepared for translation, if you'd like to drop us a line about your translation you can contact us through our website.
