Implements a set of WordPress shortcodes and theme additions that allow widget content (initially just sidebars but eventually any text) to be used in any page or post using simple shortcodes.
For a sidebar:
[show_sidebar id="<sidebar id>"]
- id: the id or name of the sidebar to be shown.
- Install Widget Magic either via the WordPress.org plugin directory, or by uploading the files to your server. If uploading the files to your server create a
widget_magicdirectory in your
/wp-content/plugins/directory and upload
widget_magic.phpinto that directory.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
- Why Widget Magic
I needed to reuse a specific piece of content in multiple places (specifically a sidebar in a page with no sidebar). This let me do that. In general WordPress does not appear to make it trivial to reuse smaller pieces of content in multiple places.
