Widgets from September Meetup

This is a quick list mostly of widgets I use on sites I own or manage. Feel free to add yours. The widget-creating site Noel mentioned is Widgetifyr.

You can install these from the WordPress Plugins Database by searching on their names.

  • Advanced Text Widget--lets you paste in HTML, PHP, or text
  • AVH Extended Categories--lets you choose how your categories are displayed
  • Customizable Search--lets you style your search box to match your site
  • Collapsing Pages--gives you a drop-down menu for navigating your static pages
  • Advanced Blogroll--lets you display only certain categories of links, in different sidebars, or different sections of your sidebar
  • Query Posts--lets you display posts from your blog sorted by just about any criteria you can imagine. A little geeky to use.
  • Collapsible Archive--creates a drop-down menu for your blog archive. Important to have once your blog gets to be long.
  • Advertising Manager--for handling your Google AdWords and other ads.
  • Polls--I have a poll about backups on the FileSlinger Backup Blog, courtesy of the WP-Polls plugin.
  • WordPress Popular Posts--I use this on the Backup Blog, though I might switch to Query Posts instead, now that I've discovered it.
