Widget Magic

Description

Implements a set of WordPress shortcodes and theme additions that allow widget content (initially just sidebars but eventually any text) to be used in any page or post using simple shortcodes.

Usage

For a sidebar:

[show_sidebar id="<sidebar id>"]

Attributes

  • id: the id or name of the sidebar to be shown.

FAQ

Why Widget Magic

I needed to reuse a specific piece of content in multiple places (specifically a sidebar in a page with no sidebar). This let me do that. In general WordPress does not appear to make it trivial to reuse smaller pieces of content in multiple places.
