Good idea
By , for WP 4.4.2

Revised review. Note that I don't actually need or use this plugin, but it seems to get the job done.

Original (incorrect) review below.

This plugin is a hazard, avoid it. I was handed a site by a client from another developer which used this plugin, and upon transferring it to a staging server dozens of these Black Studio TinyMCE widgets vanished.

I wasted hours of my time tracking down the problem to this plugin, which takes all of the data given to it and runs it naked through the standard serializer before regurgitating it into the WordPress options table. That means that when replacing URLs when moving a site any URLs inside of the widgets get replaced and invalidate the entire serialization, causing all of the widgets to vanish.

Any PHP programmer should know better than to write serialized output to the database, and WordPress offers many better options for storing data. The design of this plugin is ignorant at best and lazy at worst.

Simplement eficasse

By , for WP 4.0

The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that it slows down site a bit (New version might not be an issue)

Very cool!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Until WordPress 3.7.1 everything went fine!

Since WP 3.8.1 it breaks my widget-site in the backend. Everytime when i have to edit a widget, i first have to deactivate the plugin and reactivate it when i am finished working.

I hope for an update soon for the fifth star ;)
