Widget Shortcode


The shortcode requires the widget ID, but no need to guess, the plugin generates the code for you. To override the widget title for a widget you can use the “title” parameter:
[widget id=”text-1″ title=”New title”]
You can also hide the widget title entirely if desired:
[widget id=”text-1″ title=”0″]

Additional Parameters:

  • container_tag: the HTML tag to use for the widget container, default: div
  • container_class: CSS classname added to the widget container, default: widget %2$s (Note: uses sprintf for variable substitution)
  • container_id: HTML ID attribute for the widget container, default: %1$s (Note: uses sprintf for variable substitution)
  • title_tag: HTML tag to use for the widget title wrapper, default: h2
  • title_class: CSS classname for the widget title wrapper, default: widgettitle


  • The plugin generates the shortcode for you
  • The shortcode generator in TinyMCE editor

Great addition to website design control

Love it as a complimentary design feature providing flexibility!!

I found a good (Plugin) widget called “Recent Posts with Thumbnails” and by using your great [Widget Shortcode], I can place this widget (Recent Posts with Thumbnails) right into a page or anywhere. Thus not being limited to using a sidebar….wonderful.

Just one issue is (I might be a little tired!!!!) it took me a while after activating the Plugin to actually find where it installed too. Surprisingly after searching for a while….found it in Widgets right across on the right hand side of the dashboard in it’s own little box – labelled “Widget Shortcode”.

Once found, it took all of 20 seconds to load my desired widget to your “Widget Shortcode”, enter my fields then scroll to the bottom and grab the resultant shortcode and bingo all done.

Hope the above tip helps others find it easier once activated.

Cheers Dennis
