Widget Pack

Description

Widget Pack consists of several widget modules that will enable you to do the things you wish were WordPress standard features.

The idea behind building such a plugin is that we believe following WordPress.org codex and best practices is the only way of developing WordPress themes and plugins.

We encourage all end-users, as well as developers, to extend any additional functionality of WordPress themes by using Widget Pack. This ensures painless and safe switching themes without loosing any widget content or its function.
