With this page widget you can create a page in the normal WordPress editor and then drop it in any widget space - you can even embed shortcodes, videos and so on, all from the usual visual editor, rather than having to type HTML into a text widget.

And you can even control the widget to a significant degree, meaning it can be hidden and revealed as and when you require it.

This makes for a much easier to use process and has proven hugely popular with our users for the creation of profiles, sidebar videos and more.

And you no longer need admin access to be able to edit sidebar content belonging to you!

In a few rare cases, with poorly coded CSS in themes you may run into problems, so you should test this widget with your theme, across several browsers, before using it on a critical live site.

The widget will not show up on the page that is chosen to show in the widget. So if you click through to the page the widget will disappear from the sidebar.

If you want to translate the widget interface the files need for that are held in a sub-folder called lang. Just copy the spec-page-widget-en-US.po file to match your language (spec-page-widget-xx-XX.po) then load it up in poedit and change what you need to change.

If you create a translation and you'd like your language file included with the plugin contact us at Spectacu.la and we'll see about adding it.
