works as advertised
By , for WP 4.3

Light plugin with very useful functionality. As others have said, it makes much easier for editors to take control of widget contents (with the added advantage over text widgets of being reusable). And this in turn frees time for the developer :-)

Ni un fallo. Sencillamente perfecto

Comes in Handy
By , for WP 4.2.2

This is one of those plugins that, as a developer, I always have on stand-by for difficult new websites! It really comes in handy when needing to put formatted content in widget areas, especially if clients are going to be updating it in the future.

Thanks for creating and maintaining this plugin! I've been using it probably for 3 years now and still go back to it quite frequently.

Brilliant

This plugin is a must-have for all WordPress users!

Exactly what I have looked for!

Hello Johan, thank you very much for developing that helpful plugin. I use it to add "Call to action" blocks on a commercial website. Editing the content with the WYSIWYG-editor is exactly what I have looked for.

Muy buen plugin

Essential WordPress Tool
By , for WP 4.1

Adding a Content Block post type into the mix is an essential tool for a WordPress type. One of the things I miss about using Drupal prior to WordPress is the ease of reuse built into that platform. Savvii Custom Post Widget fills the gap for WordPress by providing a robust content container that makes resuse easy: Content as Widget, Content as Page/Post component, workaround to plug content into some theme form.

The latest addition of specifying a Content Block slug in shortcode is a real time-saver!

Developer Johan van der Wijk works the forum and collaborates with users. Thanks!

Really great plugin
By , for WP 4.1

This is a really great and very practical plugin. I use it to add multiple blocks of content onto a single page, which are sorted into tabs using a separate (unrelated) tab plugin - it's much easier for me to edit the content of each tab via an individual custom post using this plugin, which makes it so easy to do!

Fantastic addition to my arsenal!

Another great plugin on WordPress.org!

Have been using it regularly now and love it!!

Couple of suggestions - these are NOT deal--breakers!!
- I like using Advanced Custom Post Search by Shane Welland and a few other Custom Posts plugins but I found the the content blocks are not found. Do you use a proprietary method to create these posts?
- Add a category for the content blocks. I used them for posts that I want to be static and hidden from the end-user so I have ALOT of them! Categorizing would be an efficient way of managing the content blocks!

Thanks for your hard work! The reviews are a testament!

Very useful plugin
