Widgets on Pages

The easy way to Add Widgets or Sidebars to Posts and Pages by shortcodes or template tags.

''NOTE'' Apologies but you may lose the widgets in your customised sidebars if upgrading from pre 0.0.8 version. The cause of this loss is required to enhance functionality and reduce further possible loss of config when changing/modifying themes. The choice to to do this was not easy but hopefully will make the plugin more stable going forward.

  1. Install the plugin from within the Dashboard or upload the directory widgets-on-pages and all its contents to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Add the widgets you want to the Widgets on Pages widget area in the admin screens
  4. Add the shortcut [widgets_on_pages id=x] to the page or post in the place where you'd like your widgets to appear (where 'x' = the id of the sidebar to use (or the name if you have named it such as [widgets_on_pages id=TagCloud]). If using only the default sidebar then no 'id' argument is needed (i.e. [widgets_on_pages]).
  5. To add a sidebar into a theme you can add the following type of code to the relevant PHP theme file. <?php widgets_on_template("wop_1"); ?>
  6. If you see bullet points/images next to the widget titles when using this plugin use the 'Enable Styling' setting in the options page
