Reviews

Nifty little plugin.

I typically add widgets to my template files using the below code:

<?php if ( !function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’) || !dynamic_sidebar(‘The Name Of Sidebar Goes Here’) ) : ?>
<?php endif; ?>

but this plugin is very useful if you want to add within the post/page content itself.

Simple and works like a charm

Thank you so much for this plugin! I just used the ID from the register_sidebar() in the functions.php file and it worked perfectly.

I tried using Widgetize Pages before, but then the widgets didn’t have any permanent ID’s so this plugin was much better!
