Is there a way to backup or copy widget content? (5 posts)

    I am doing a lot of changing of people's blogs, and I am wondering if there is an easier way (through phpmyadmin?) of backing up the widget content instead of using a text editor and copy and paste!
    Any ideas or tips would be great!! Thanks.

    Well phpMyAdmin in the wp_options table would give you access to the data (option names are like "widget_*" e.g. "widget_pages") but you'd still need to save that data or change the option name to something different so it didn't get deleted.

    Wish there was a plugin to do that...

    If there is any such plugin please post it here, even i do the back of sidebar widgets manually.

    Well, I have a complete list saved in the Microsoft Word.
