Immensely useful plugin (with a few relatively minor problems)
By , for WP 4.0

The ability added by this plugin to clone widgets is a very significant timesaver!

I gave it only four stars for now, because of two bugs which have already been reported:

  • when widgets are expanded, the leftmost '+' icon on the widget title bar misleadingly turns into a 'V' arrow, but clicking on it will nevertheless still clone the widget. Thanks to Marco Chiesi for providing this fix! Hopefully, the developer will incorporate it into the next update.
  • when dragging-and-dropping widgets from the Available Widgets area into a Sidebar or widget-area, the newly added widget gets duplicated annoyingly.
Worked great, but stopped working on upgrade
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've upgraded to the newest version 3.8.1 and honestly, not sure when it stopped working (on which upgrade - prob 3.8.0) because I haven't had to use it for a while, but it does not work now. You click on the + and all it does is open the widget. Does not clone like it did before. Any plans for updates?

Great plugin, but can only install manually
By , for WP 3.5.1

I use this great plugin all the time with the "Custom Post Widget" plugin.

I'm gonna hold back one star however as you can't auto-install it from with WordPress instead having to manually upload, unpack, activate. Once these issues are fixed I'll gladly bump to 5.
