    Is it possible to code this plugin directly into my theme's sidebar template without using it as a widget?

    Instructions on how to accomplish this would be great!

    Thanks in advance!

    You could distribute the plugin with your template if you wanted. Otherwise it would be a bit difficult. Also if you integrated it into your template's functions.php or similar then your users wouldn't get any updates to the plugin unless you manually integrated the new version so that would be a bit sucky. So untill WordPress adds a 'required plugins' feature for themes to use I'm not sure there is many good options.

    You could write a script in your functions.php to check for the plugin and if it isnt present display an error to your user.

    Figured it out using native WP functions within the functions.php file...WP keeps getting better.

    Thanks for your input though.
