Support » Plugin: Widget Alias » Very cool but

    This is a very cool plugin and I hoped to be able to use it but there is one problem:

    I need to change one parameter in the alias.

    In my case it’s: Display as: [ ] Links [ ] Checkboxes

    At the original widget position it needs to display as links on the alias it needs to display as checkboxes.

    It’s a plugin that allows to select categories.

    I want the same categories checked but displayed differently.

    Sadly only the title can be overwritten.

    Hi there,

    I hear your question, however the whole point of widget alias is to mimic a widget exactly. If you want to output a widget with different options, then I recommend just using a second instance of that widget with the correct configuration. Does that make sense, or am I missing something?

    Thanks. You’re right. There is also a plugin to clone a widget which would do the job for me.
    Since your widget allows to change the title of a widget, it would have been nice, but of course it would complicate the whole thing.
