How can I use PHP inside my widgets?

It's possible to add some scripting to your widgets using the shortcodes [php][/php]. All the text inside those tags will be interpreted as PHP code. The PHP execution is based in the exceptional plugin Allow PHP in Post and Pages. Have a look to its page for further usage instructions.

I want my widget to display the message `[php]Hola amigo[/php]`. How can I do it?

Use the shortcodes [php off][/php]: If you write [php off]Hola amigo[/php] the widget will display [php]Hola amigo[/php].

Why the `[php]` shortcodes are not working on my posts or pages?

Widget Entries does not aim to give the inline php execution feature to the posts and pages. To do so I recommend to use Allow PHP in Post and Pages plugin.

I have a lot of widget entries in my WordPress, and selecting them for appearing in the sidebar is a pain, because the list is too long. How can i make it shorter?

If you have created a lot of widget entries I'm sure you are not using them. You can unpublish (save as a draft) the ones that you don't use it anymore, and they will not appear in the select box of the widget.

An editor user cannot create widget entries. What capability is needed to create them?

The capability needed is 'edit_theme_options', the same that is needed to edit sidebar widgets. You can change the capability modifying the 'cap_required' variable at the begining of the plugin source.
