The Inline Widgets plugin for WordPress lets you insert any widget within the content of your posts and pages — rather than merely in a sidebar.
You may also find its parent project, the Feed Widgets plugin, of interest.
Placing a widget in your content
It’s short and simple:
- Browse Appearance / Widgets
- Open the Inline Widgets panel (“sidebar”, in the WP jargon)
- Place whichever widgets you want in that panel
- Edit your post or page
- Notice the Widgets dropdown menu
- Select your widget in that dropdown menu, and it’ll insert your widget where your mouse cursor is at
Common uses for this plugin include:
- An ad widget
- A contact form widget
- A subscription form widget
- A silo stub or map widget
- A recent updates widget before or after a silo stub
- An archives and a category widget (to create an “Archives” page)
- A links widget (to create a “Bookmarks” page)
- An author image widget, in the event you only want those in some posts or pages
- A text widget with arbitrary information you’re inserting in multiple posts or pages
The list goes on, and on. Your imagination is the only limit.
