How to Create a Widget Plugin for WordPress – Part 2

Remi | November 13, 2012 | in News

I just finished the second part of my tutorial called “How to Create a Widget Plugin for WordPress” that i started and published on WPExplorer. In this part i cover some advanced aspects of the widget plugin creation such as adding specific fields and how to features to them.This tutorial will gives all the keys to create a powerful widget inside a plugin where text fields, textareas, checkbox and dropdown selects will allow you to easily add different content types to the widget. Another great point i cover in this tutorial, is how to allow paragraph auto-creation in textarea fields. And finally you’ll learn how to modify the widget to make it look bigger for example, like the built-in text widget.

If you didn’t already read first part of the tutorial, read it here.
