Support » Installing WordPress » Changing Meta Widget

  • I would like to add a link to the Meta Widget in my sidebar
    viewable here which says Forum Login So my members can access the forum login page directly from the main page. All it allows me to edit in the Widget is the name. Other than just adding a new text widget is there a way to edit that?

  • That widget stuff is in wp-includes/widgets.php starting at line 468 in version 2.3.


    A better way is simply to use a Text widget and put your links in manually. This way you’re not hacking the core code.

    If you want to remove everything from the Meta menu (in WordPress Version 2.5.1) except for the Site Admin and Login/Logout links in the Meta menu then go to the widgets.php file in the wp-includes directory and remove lines 532-535.

    If you want to change the name of the Meta menu to something else go to line 525 and change where it says ‘Meta’ on that line to whatever you like within the quotes.

    I hope this helps.



    awesome! thanks marcbkk

    now that i’ve changed the meta menu, how can i add new links in there to only show when a user is login? for example write a new post.
