One of neatest features in WordPress is something called widgets. Widgets are basically containers that hold information, or provide certain types functionality, that can be easily added into your site with very little effort. The most familiar of these is probably the list of recent posts you see in the sidebar of many sites. Those are usually widgets, and they’re very easy to add.

While widgets are great, they’re often very structured and inflexible. This usually means you have little control over what is displayed. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could design your own widgets so that you could display any text, images, and use shortcodes in them? Wouldn’t it be cool if you could do this with the same post editor you use to publish content? Guess what? You can with Simple Widget Builder!

Simple Widget Builder lets you create custom widget content right in your WordPress post editor. You can add images, videos, text formatted any way you want, use shortcodes from other plugins, and just about anything else you want.

Here’s a little preview of creating a custom widget.
