or some time, users of PRblogs.org have desired the ability to personalize their sidebars. Now, that is possible.
Widgets have arrived at PRblogs.org. This will add significant functionality and likely please existing and new users.
Fiddling with plugins, I’ve been able to get Widgets to work on PRblogs.org.
Pretty cool. Visit the example blog at widgets.prblogs.org to see how they look.
- a text widget pointing to an image file,
- a text widget holding Constantin’s code to search for all PR blogs,
- the Google search widget,
- an RSS feed widget, and
- a del.icio.us feed widget.
Pretty nice, huh. Currently widgets only work on two themes – default and classic – but we’ll fix that over the coming week.
I’ll be going through and identifying themes that will work with widgets. All don’t, by the way, and it will likely take awhile for “all” to be made widget friendly. But, I’ll come back and identify the ones I find that work both with widgets and WordPress MU, the versions of WordPress we are running at PRblogs.org.
I’ll consider adding other widgets, if you wish to suggest them. I’m thinking that I’ll not put the PHP execute widget in as that is a security issue. But, there are others out there and I’m open to considering them, if you wish.
Update: Themes that work with widgets on PRblogs.org are now these…
- WordPress Classic
- WordPress Default
- and more to come…
