Great plugin! Easy to use and integrates well with WordPress.

Works most of the time
By , for WP 4.3

When this widget works, it works well and is easy to use. It has worked on 4 out of 5 of my sites. On the 5th site, however, using the same theme and version of theme as the other 4 sites, it will not work at all. I can load it into the sidebar, load an image and text into it, save it, and absolutely nothing happens. I'd like to give this plugin a 5-star rating, and I'd like to be a raving fan. When it's fixed, I will.

Simple, quality, on point

Very easy to use plugin that has just enough features - not too many to be obtrusive, not too few that I've ever wanted more. I highly recommend this plugin to anyone looking to implement images in a sidebar easily.

Great work, clean code, and it's easy to modify the output template. I wanted to make exactly this, but discovered that someone already did. My day just got that much better :)

Best image widget

I keeped Jetpack for widget "image". So, now I use Simple Image Widget, is easy to use, light wight and work well. Thanks!

Whew! An easy solution to a Jet Pack problem

I'm not a web person. And since I'm low budget, I'm doing it myself and figuring it out as I go. That means when I have a problem....something doesn't perform as it should, it's 50/50 on whether or not I'll figure it out.

I have Jet Pack and I wanted an to use an image to link to my Mail Chimp sign up page. Jet Packs image widget leaves the image BIG, and resizing it didn't resolve it. It just made the image fuzzy. Plus the text was gray and hard to read.

No one responded to my question so I found another one - this one. Lots of downloads, recently updated, tested with my version of WP.

1.2.3 presto! Done! THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS (besides it's EASY) is that it gives you the option of what size you want the image: big, medium, or thumbnail.

Thank you.

Outstanding widget

I absolutely love the template loader solution. If every widget plugin had something like that, there would be no war in this world. Probably.

Thank you!
