Very useful app
By , for WP 4.6

This plugin is an excellent addition to many WP websites. However there is a bit of a problem with the shortcode copy. You (dev) have wrapped the output in <code> tags, and when copied and paste into TinyMCE, the tags are included so the result is just a display of the shortcode. I edited the output function to use a readonly textarea and the problem is gone, however, when the app is updated, that modification is replaced.

This is just a suggestion that you use this output method instead, just so I (or other users) don't have to edit the file after each update.
<textarea class="widefat" onclick="this.select()" readonly="readonly">[widget id="'. $widget->id .'"]</textarea>

Why isn't this a standard part of wordpress? Why would anyone ever want to contain widgets only to a sidebar that you don't even want there half the time!

Thank you!

Brilliant

This plugin does exactly what it is supposed to do and also in a extremely user-friendly way (the shortcode to be used is at your fingertips inside the widget itself). Other similar plugins are full of usage instructions and still much more difficult to use.

No longer works with WP
