Why did you developed this plugin?

I developed this plugin because i found that i was writing HTML in text widgets and the sites needed to be edited by non technical people and inserting a page into a widget was the easiest way.

Can i use filters to change the plugin output?

Yes. There are two filters for each posts and pages output. For content postsinwidgets_content and pagesinwidgets_content as well as pagesinwidgets_image and postsinwidgets_image for filtering images.

Only Title appears, and then nothing. Page is simple text with few images. <div class=”homepage_section”> </div> in between blank. Does not load page at all.

This plugin works perfectly because sometimes you just can’t get those specific sections/widgets on the homepage looking the way you want, niice 😎 I actually combined mine with the Page Builder by SiteOrigin plugin to section the pages out for that part, and of course this Pages In Widgets plugin to get the page/section/widget right where I need it.

This is a great plugin, and made it much easier for me to create complex page structures yet still provide a usable update mechanism for my client. Love it. I did have a problem for some months with this plugin apparently breaking other things and preventing other shortcodes from running (because disabling it or using an old version appeared to fix the presenting problem) and Jayde was helpful, letting me know each time a new version came out and asking if that fixed it. It turns out it must have been a ‘multi-factorial’ as, with recent updates to other plugins and WordPress itself, the problem has gone away.
