  • Hi!

    Below is a script that creates a widget area. Any widget that is added into this area is contained within a simple <div></div> tag.

    I need the script to generate a unique ID per div (widget) created.. so that it would be like:
    <div id=”name1″>widget 1 here</div>
    <div id=”name2″>next widget here</div>
    <div id=”name1″>another widget here</div>

    here is the script:

    function arphabet_widgets_init() {

    register_sidebar( array(
    ‘name’ => ‘Home Footer’,
    ‘id’ => ‘home_bottom_1’,
    ‘before_widget’ => ‘<div>’,
    ‘after_widget’ => ‘</div>’,
    ‘before_title’ => ‘<h2 class=”rounded”>’,
    ‘after_title’ => ‘</h2>’,
    ) );
    add_action( ‘widgets_init’, ‘arphabet_widgets_init’ );

    any suggestions?

    The ‘before_widget’ string gets fed as a format specifier into a sprintf() function when the widget is output, with the data arguments being the widget ID and class name. To get output similar to “<div id=\”$widget_id\””> use the following array value assignment: 'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s">',

    The widget ID will be a unique string representation of an integer, it will not be name1, name2 etc.

    ok great ill try it out.. thanks so much!
