Support » Plugin: Multisite Widgets Context » Doesn’t work for Text or Custom HTML widgets

  • I am successfully using this plugin on Multisite to grab menus from the main site and display them on the subsites.

    It doesn’t seem to work on Text widgets or Custom HTML widgets though, and I have to create a new widget on each subsite instead.

    Is there any way around this?

    This plugin is not really intended for grabbing widget data from other subsites, but instead run that widget as if it were running on another subsite. What it can do is populate the widget with content (e.g: menus) from the target subsite. But not from the widget itself. (This just made me realize that the “Pull widget data from target site” can be
    misleading)

    What you want sounds more like a “Copy Widget From Site X” feature that what this plugin was built for. You can still use the text widgets or custom html to run shortcodes in a context of another subsite, that will work (running the shortcode) but the content itself will have to be manually (re)created).

    Hope that makes sense for you :).
