I’ve change my blog template and quite satisfied with the combination between WordPress and a brand new BlogNews themes. BlogNews themes came with fully customization option, with flexible widget on every part of template layout. WordPress widget give me a simple way to add some content on the selected place.
One drawback with WordPress widgets is that we couldnâ€™t add plugins or call PHP code within widgets. If you get same problem, the following plugins may help you to manage PHP code within widgets :
Install one of the above plugins (I choose the first choice) with WordPress plugins page, activate it and then voila, you have a new widget, the one like text widget but it can handle PHP code. Don’t forget to insert PHP code inside PHP tags (<? and ?>) if you wish to add PHP function. The widget should also supporting standard plain text and HTML code.
