Plugins Required: Widgets
Plug & Play: Yes
Add multiple custom widgets to your sidebar. Paste text, HTML, PHP, etc into each widget and use the Widgets plugin to position it in your sidebar or other widget block.
1. Upload the "text_widget" folder to your plugins folder.
2. Install it from Plugin Management in Admin.
3. Add new text widgets from Admin -> Text Widget
If you would rather use a template than paste code into a widget, you can do so by checking the PHP box and putting the following code in the text area where template_name is the file name (without extension) of the custom template in your theme folder.
$h->displayTemplate('template_name'); // no .php extension
