Button Widget

Display a CSS formatted button, for example to leave a comment or visit a contact page, using a widget that can be restricted by category, sub-category, post ID, etc.

What this Plugin Makes Possible

In a theme which includes a widget area at the start of the post content area, it can be useful to include a button that sends users straight to the comment form, or to a contact page, or even to a specific page related to the content being viewed.

The plugin also includes support for one additional special purpose type of button which won’t be relevant to other users, but this can easily be dropped simply by dropping the special purpose code from the widget class.

How it Works

This plugin communicates with WordPress via the usual widget standards:

  • widgets_init
  • WP_Widget

Configuration and Flexibility

This widget includes several controls to restrict placement to particular contexts.
