Support » Plugin: Display Widgets SEO Plus » New feature request – Widget name and display name

  • Resolved Venutius


    I’ve got a new feature request, not sure it’s appropriate to this plugin but I thought I’d run it by you.

    I have a problem with Displaying different images on different pages. What I like to do is not give the image a title so that only the image is displayed. I do this with other widgets too as often you end up replicating information that is already displayed within the widget itself, I like to try and cut down on unnecessary information on my pages.

    The problem this creates is it makes managing the widgets really difficult from the widgets page in that they all look the same, with no name, and finding the image that I’m displaying on a particular page means I have to drill down into each widgets settings to reveal that info.

    What I would like is some way of labeling my widgets and only shows up when I’m on the Widget management page, a reminder to self. This should display when you are in the top level (unexpanded) view of the widgets, possibly alongside the name itself.

    What do you think about this? I think it would make using Display Widgets an awful lot easier.

    You want to label a widget (give it a title), but when it’s loaded on a widget area (a sidebar) it doesn’t load the Widget Title.

    I do understand the problem as had the same issue with adding Text Widgets with text links, I’d have a couple of dozen Text Widgets with no titles that’s a pain to manage.

    So I like the idea.

    Found a plugin which is a simple filter (few lines of code). I’ve added it to the Display Widgets SEO Plus Plugin code so will be in the next update.

    To hide a widget tile you add an exclamation point ! to the start of the title.

    This widget title would show:

    Example Widget Title

    And this widget title would NOT show:

    !Example Widget Title

    Working through the BuddyPress and bbPress widget logic, should have an update out soon.


    That sounds like a great little workaround
