Yank Widget 1.2

I’ve completed an update to my silly Yank Widget WordPress Plugin.

This release includes some minor bug fixes and hopefully some optimizations.

  • Yank Widgets should be more optimized. The plugin checks for pages added to Yank Widget areas on each post or page before trying to query the database for pages added to a Yank Widget sidebar area.
  • The widget container will not show without page content for all posts and pages unless you set the widget to always show the container in the widget settings.
  • Multipage pages using nextpage that are used in Yank Widget areas will now only show a “Read More” link that will direct the visitors to the second page.

As usual, if please leave a comment or send me a note if you find any issues! If you find this strange plugin useful, please consider making a donation or other contribution!

Yank Widget 1.0

I’ve decided to release Yank Widget 1.0 for the Weblog Tools Collection Plugin Competition. I wanted to do more for this plugin, but ran out of time.

It works fairly well as a way to add secondary static content to the sidebars for a particular post or page. The user interfaces are not quite what I wanted, but that will have to wait for future development.

You are more than welcome to post your feedback and bugs here, or contact me privately if necessary!
