Double post today! Though I’ve been editing this particular entry for a while. o_o
.

All right, some of you may have some difficulties picking up HTML (your coding language for web pages) yet still want to play with text widgets. But no worries, there’s a simple tip here so you won’t have to fiddle with HTML too much with text widgets!

.

The tip:
Use your “Write Post” feature to help generate the HTML codes you need for your text widget!

.

A step-by-step guide:

  1. First, go to “Write Post” or “Write Page”, whichever you prefer.
    .
  2. Click the “Visual” tag, if it isn’t already in that mode.
    .
  3. Use it to type anything that you want in your text widget (links, pictures, etc), as you would with your posts/pages.
    .
  4. Click the “HTML” tag, so that you can see the HTML coding of what you’ve written.
    .
  5. Copy the whole HTML coding and paste it into your text widget.
    .
  6. Don’t forget to click “Change” and “Save” to save your changes!
    .
  7. Voila! Your very own custom-edited text widget!

The only problem I see with this method is that… well… you’d get an extra draft post/page in your Manage section, because of the autosave feature. xP

It may be a simple trick, but hopefully it’ll help you WordPress bloggers out there. =D
