Amazing! Simple and powerful. Many thanks pal! I needed to put the community guidelines in a place where people could always see. Your widget made it possible.

Easy install, opens up a world of possibilities in modifying your forum. Very highly recommended.

This is great. One minor improvement, it would be good if your widget had a unique class or ID, or even in an ideal world, a field to add a class, so we can style it with css easily.

Simple and powerful. A absolutely useful plugin.
For the future I would wish an option to activate and deactivate this plugin for particular themes. This would be great!

Awesome, does what it says and in my opinion a better way for ads use since you can put the ads exactly where you want them. Well done.

I have gotten so much use out of this! I have never been able to get PHP working with it though, at all. Not even a basic "hello world". So I don't know if that's just me, or if that's long been broken, but being able to add custom HTML while using the following has been a huge benefit to my site:
Try using one of these:
<div class='ipsMessage ipsMessage_info'>Info-style message</div>
<div class='ipsMessage ipsMessage_error'>error-style message</div>
<div class='ipsMessage ipsMessage_warning'>warning-style message</div>
<div class='ipsMessage ipsMessage_success'>success-style message</div>
<div class='ipsMessage ipsMessage_general'>general-style message</div>

Seems its not working with 4.3.4 It crashes on install. Then I found 3 instances in the plugins list. I removed all but one, and its not showing up in the BLOCKS section no matter what I try.

Does not appear to be compatible with the latest IPB version - Developer please update.

Can NO-Longer add sidebar Blocks nor remove them with 4.1.11 -- Could we get an update ?

Widgets work as advertised by have various issues.
For instance, when placing a widget the widget will display an object exception error prior to adding any content to the widget. If widget is saved without adding content the error is displayed. - I reported this on the GitHub page.
When trying to edit a widget the widget just tries to load and never does. This usually only happens if attempting to edit the widget during a new session. For example I first set up a widget, then the next day I needed to edit a line of code and it just sat in a forever loading screen. I ended up having to delete the widget and put in a new one so I could edit the contents.
Overall, if these issues are resolved, this would be a 5 star plugin that should be charged for as it does wonders to clean up custom block lists. Now custom block lists can be minimal, to just what you need, since this drag and drop much more effective and less time consuming to build.

This works great. There is one minor problem on IPB 4.0.2 - I get this error logging out and it tries to load the widget for Guest users.
The CSRF protection key did not match. This may indicate a plugin or theme is out of date. Please contact technical support for more information.
Error code: 2S119/1
This worked great in replacing the widget 'Guest Message' from Devfuse. Very handy, but might need to be updated?
