Okay; I've never taken the time to review a WP plugin, but this is the second time my site has been broken after updating this plugin. This time I'm not going to waste valuable time figuring out the new shortcode syntax - it can stay out of date. Just infuriating.
Been developing with WordPress since it was created.
My developers and I spent about 30 min testing this plugin and it does not work.
For those saying it works, I would say check your theme because you probably have a severe coding error.
Best of luck to developer getting this to work in future releases.
Not sure about in any other scenarios, but I'm trying to include three instances of a certain widget type in a page and the behaviour I'm getting from it is very unexpected. [do_widget "Call To Action"] includes all three of the 'Call To Action'-type widgets I've got set up in the shortcodes widget area.
It's a too good to be true type of thing.
It will work for single word obviously named widgets, but when you try to use a widget ID it fails every time.
Doing the DeBug would have been very cool, however no matter which widget I put in the widget/shortcode area prior to page debugging, it's always the same thing. It will show the ID name or names, but putting those exact names in the short code area on the page will result in another fail. Then just changing it back to say "archives" or "pages" or "Calendar" will result in success.
Plug in at point was an hour or so of wasted time.
The plugin to get to manage pages and widgets that works amazing is
PAGE BUILDER by SITEORIGIN
It worked in 30 seconds, no lie.
Best wishes otherwise to those who try their best on these things, but it just needs more love.
This plugin is a good idea, but it doesn't actually work. When I try to use it, I get errors where the widget should display: You are admin: Try debug See a exclamation point ! above ?. Hover over to see error message.
