Widgets on Pages

Author: toddhalfpenny
Allows ‘in-page’ widget areas so widgets can be defined via shortcut straight into page/post content.
There is one default widget area that can be used or you can add more from the settings menu. You can currently have an unlimited number of sidebars.
Each sidebar can be called indepentenly by a shortcode and you can call more than one per post/page.
Sidebars can be included in the post/page by using a shortcode like [widgets_on_pages id=x] where x is the number of the sidebar.
Sidebars can also be named via the Widgets on Pages options page and that name can be used instead of the x id.
”NOTE” : see changelog for use if using the named sidebar

Install the plugin from within the Dashboard or upload the directory widgets-on-pages and all its contents to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
Add the widgets you want to the Widgets on Pages widget area in the admin screens
Add the shortcut [widgets_on_pages id=x] to the page or post in the place where you’d like your widgets to appear (where ‘x’ = the id of the sidebar to use (or the name if you have named it such as [widgets_on_pages id=TagCloud]). If using only the default sidebar then no ‘id’ argument is needed (i.e. [widgets_on_pages]).

Can I have more than one defined sidebar area

Yes… you can have an unlimited number of sidebars defined. The number available can be administered via the settings menu.
