[resolved] Widget Intro Text (4 posts)

    Hi, I am wanting to put a bit of welcome text before the form fields on the widget. Something like "Sign up below for our weekly newsletter filled with fun stuff, blah, blah." Can that text field option be added to the plugin or do I need to hack it? I purchased both "extras" but need this functionality also. Thanks!

    Hi mediagin perhaps you can add a text widget above the form with that explanation?

    The text-widget above didn't produce good results. I edited your esu-widget-class.php to include an "intro text" input below the "title", but it doesn't appear on the widget in the admin area. I don't expect troubleshooting help with this seemingly simple hack, but I've been through every line of plugin code looking for the answer as to why it wouldn't show. Any clue? Thanks Greenweb.

    mediagin instead of changing the plugin code, as I am due out with an update to it, perhaps you could make use of a text widget and paste in the esu shortcode.

    To enable shortcode support in widgets have a look at the following:

    // Use shortcodes in text widgets.
    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

    The code above could go into your theme's function file. Or you could make a utility plugin for it.
    more on that here:
