Reviews

So Helpful

Was looking for a way to duplicate one of those ‘Custom HTML’ widgets – you know – the one that’s supposed to help you by adding custom HTML but then all the code just evaporates giving you no way at all to copy the code and place it into another widget (also known as a WordPress improvement – lol yeah right).

This plugin however takes care of all that by adding a ‘clone’ option to all widgets, then you just drag the newly cloned widget to it’s new location (even WordPress improvement ones).

So simple and helpful – but then most good plugins are simple and helpful.

Thanks for a great new toy!

very good!

works as expected, is easy to use and unobtrusive.

thank you for developing it!
