Widget Builder

This plugin creates predefined content widgets that can be used in multiple sidebars while being centrally configured.


Dashboard Widgets

Select 'Available As Dashboard Widget' in the widget editor to enable a widget as a dashboard widget. If you do not want this widget showing in the available widgets list for sidebar placement, select 'Disable Sidebar Widget'.

Default vs. Custom Templates

The built in template can be overridden by files within your template.

The Widget Builder comes with a default template for the widget output. If you would like to alter the widget display code, create a new folder called "tribe_widget_builder" in your template directory and copy over the "views/widget.php" file.

Edit the new file to your hearts content. Please do not edit the one in the plugin folder as that will cause conflicts when you update the plugin to the latest release.

Alternatively you can point to a path of your choosing using the filter 'tribe_widget_builder_widget.php'.

Filter widget query args

Filter your query arguments or get_posts altogether for granular fine tuning your listing of widgets or in the case of MU install restricting the builder to one site.

The following filters are available for override

'tribe_widget_builder_get_posts_args' // customize the widget query parameters
'tribe_widget_builder_get_posts' // change the get_posts() query
