    Just the kind of thing I am looking for, but would be nice if it had the WYSIWYG editor on it for people that don’t know HTML.

    Another great plugin of yours, congrats!

    Just a quick question: can we include php code in the snippet? From your post, I’d say no, so if that’s the case do you have another plugin up your sleeves to help me do that? 🙂

    Very nice. It’s a great improvement to helping novice users figure out how to update their sidebar for a particular page. For some reason they don’t quite grasp `if(is_page(‘about’))` 😉

    Excellent job! Does this also have a template tag we can use? Or is it Widget only?

    This looks to be a very useful plugin. Having the ability to control widget presentation from the post editor motivates me to provide more dynamic content in the sidebar because of the convenience factor. I’ll have to make it a point to integrate this into my site.

    This is a very useful plugin especially when used on a magazine style site. I haven’t looked at it yet but one question popped into my mind: if you put the Snippets widget into more than one widget area, would it be possible to choose in the post meta box which snippet widget should display the content?

    Very clever. For my clients who are “editors” of a website and who cannot see the widget area… You save my life 😉 Gonna use it right now !

    the plugin looks cool. can we set a default snippet that appear in every post? or we need to customize it one by one in every post.

    Thanks for sharing this plugin. Great Idea. Having a problem with the Excerpt header covering the snippit box…tried deactivating it and then reactivating it but that didn’t help. I have the latest install of WP and plugins. Could be a another plugin conflicting with it. Any suggestions?

    @Justin —

    Again, sir, you are a genius. I have run across an application where this was the exact functionality I needed, and you have provided exactly the solution.

    @Kevin —

    For the time being, just use the regular visual editor to generate the code, then cut the HTML version and paste it into the Snippet box.

    My question is the same as Robert above. Since we can now have widgets in more places than just the sidebar is it possible to have more than one snippet widget with different content in each. Ex. One Snippet in the sidebar widget, one in the Footer widget and different content in each based on the field that is populated in the post editor?

    This would be as you say “Going Wild” with this plugin. BTW, fantastic plugin and it isn’t just for the newbie. Sometimes we don’t want spend time (or have time) to do it with code. This plugin greatly simplifies unique content for each post.

    Thanks so much for a fantastic and useful plugin.

    I’m in the same boat as @Dave Smith and @Robert above. This Plugin is exactly what I wished I had for a previous project. And I’m now about to create a large CMS site where this would be invaluable. BUT, they have multiple content areas per page.

    I dropped the widget into more than one widget area and went to the edit screen expecting to see more that one post meta box (or one with sub fields for each widget). It would be invaluable to be able to have this functionality. I would think you would do what you have now but add a container for each that has the default title as the header to help differentiate (and/or the widget area title with default title).

    Any chance of this happening?

    Hi Justin! Like Jeremy, It would certainly be great if this will support PHP. I am one of those who use Exec-PHP and it doesn’t seem to be updated that much, although it works fine on WP 2.8+ versions. (At least that’s what I see when I look at it directly from searching through the plugin search panel on my WP.) Would be great if we get options, one that is newer and freshly maintained, on this type of plugin (that execute PHP code) especially when it seems another major version of WP is coming out soon. Cheers! 🙂

    @Dave Smith, @Dax Davis, I have made some mods to the Snippets widget to allow selecting a position if the widget has been used more than once in sidebars. I have sent the code to Justin so he can review it and include it in the next plugin release if he thinks it’s OK.

    Is there any possible way to include the wp gallery button within the snippet admin box? that way instead of having to paste in code, the user could select an image from the gallery and link that to another page, lightbox, external link etc.. Or they could select a video and have it embedded, same with audio etc..?

    I was even thinking for those that use the kaltura video system, we could even have the kaltura browse/upload button there like we do in posts?

    Could even link it to a shopping cart image like a book for sale that relates to the article

    Man the ideas are endless….

    +1 for php_exec(with permissions), and also multi-snippets

    oh…does it work with wpmu?

    This is a great, simple plugin. As a general newbie I wasn’t even aware that this could be done manually. And frankly, I’d much rather use this plugin than mess around with the code. As others have mentioned, this would be great to be able to use in more than one place on the page. -James

    Maybe you know how to fix this : I have added a shortcode to a text widget, which displays some content in a widgetized area.
    But the content div genereated by the shortcode appears before the widget div:

    instead of

    Your plugin places the content correctly inside the widget div, so maybe you can tell me how to achieve the same effect?

    This is an awesome plugin Justin, well done for your hard work.

    Is it possible to get multiple snippet post settings for one single post, i.e 3, to insert a google map, videos and extra info?

    Will it be included in future updates or can you help me modify the codes please, I’ll pay a fee.

    Hi there,

    First of all: Awesome plugin! Was looking for this for quite some time 🙂
    The only thing I can’t figure out is the way the text/html appears on my website.

    There is no margin or padding at all. The text just appears right next to the start of the widget ( to the border to the left). Is there any way I can add a padding to this plugin so it will appear more centered and in alignment with the rest of my widgets?

    Thanks in advance!

    I am trying to have a widget displayed for a specific user but unfortunately I cannot get it to work.

    I have found out how to get the current user id and display a text for this user only, but I don’t know how to convert to Widget Logic code.

    This is what I am trying to do:

    Can anyone tell me how I can get the above to work with Widget Logic?

    Does this plugin still works for current WP version?

    I like the idea. It’s both post snippets and Widget Logic together.

    You should rename the widget as “Post related Widget”, or something like that.

    This plugin works for the current WP verision (my answer to sergio that have written above me).

    Justin thank you again
    this smart plugin saved my day.

    I had to convert html site to WP and only solution was this Snippets plugin.
    Some wide (widget) content different on every page was real problem.

    I know you said above U do not like Visual editor, but can be handy here 🙂

      Once again this nice Justin’s plugin save the day. I wanted to show some special notification massage (this product is on sale) in marketpress plugin product page. But My Snippets plugin have no support for custom posts.

      Not any more 🙂

      Open meta-box.php

      Find line:

      add_meta_box( 'my-snippets-post-meta-box', sprintf( __('Snippet %1$s settings', 'my-snippets'), 'post' ), 'my_snippets_post_meta_box', 'post', 'normal', 'high' );

      And after that paste

      add_meta_box( 'my-snippets-post-meta-box', sprintf( __('Snippet %1$s settings', 'my-snippets'), 'post' ), 'my_snippets_post_meta_box', product, 'normal');

      So if you look in code I just replaced ‘post’ with product.

      I think that trick can solve other plugin’s matabox problems. U just need to look in code of plugin and find how custom posts is named (I do not know the term for this 😉

    John Published |

    test site using a city theme which uses “places” instead of posts makes this plugin pretty much useless – Q = how difficult would it be to make your plugin work with custom post types ?

    anyone that can make this happen for a reasonable fee $$$ ?

    much appreciated –

    thx JC
