Linkable Title Html and Php Widget

Using this wordpress plugin you may have Text, HTML, Javascript, Flash and/or Php as content in the widget (just like the text widget) with linkable/clickable widget titles, so this is a plus compared to the default wordpress’ text widget.

  1. Hi,

    I’ve added your plugin on a wordpress 2.8.6 installation.

    When I have added something in the widget box and then press save it clears all the input fields and therefore it show an empty widget on the blog.


  2. Hi PepLamb

    I just put your widget on a test site and have a question for you.

    I can’t seem to format the sentences the way I want to. Have tried using and not using ‘automatically format paragraphs’ as well as ‘pushing’ the text onto the next line using the space bar.
    Below is what I want to happen.

    Would you like to…….

    Increase the participation level of every meeting?
    Increase the engagement level of every meeting?
    Increase the enthusiasm level of every meeting?
    Increase the insights gained at every meeting?

    And here is what is showing up.

    Would you like to……..

    Increase the participation level of your meetings? Increase the engagement level of your meetings? Increase the enthusiasm level of your meetings? Increase the insights gained at your meetings?

    Any ideas on how to format the text?

    On a positive note, I have been looking for a widget that I could embed my Zenfolio (foto site) slideshows with and guess what?

    Yours works very nicely. Wasn’t expecting to solve that dilemma with this widget.


    1. Hi Tom πŸ™‚
      I come up with this solution, can you try this?

      Would you like to…….< br />
      < br />
      Increase the participation level of every meeting?< br />
      Increase the engagement level of every meeting?< br />
      Increase the enthusiasm level of every meeting?< br />
      Increase the insights gained at every meeting?

      in < br / > remove the spaces, this should work!
      I’ll look into the automatic issue, but this fix will work with or without auto-formatting πŸ™‚

      1. Hi PepLamb

        Still not working.

        I copied and pasted:

        Would you like to…….

        Increase the participation level of every meeting?
        Increase the engagement level of every meeting?
        Increase the enthusiasm level of every meeting?
        Increase the insights gained at every meeting?

        This is with the spaces removed…..I think….Don’t know anything about code….

        Thanks for the reply.


        PS. A suggestion. Allow automatic email follow-ups to posts. I don’t want to miss anything good. :>)

  3. In my previous post I included the html characters but they don’t show when I posted the reply. Hey, is that why you used the spaces in your post? I just might be learning something here. Amazing.

    Here it is again with spaces.

    Would you like to…….

    Increase the participation level of every meeting?
    Increase the engagement level of every meeting?
    Increase the enthusiasm level of every meeting?
    Increase the insights gained at every meeting?

    1. hi Tom,
      can you shw me the website i can help you directly or you just have to use < b r / > the br tag with no spaces in it and it should work, yep i put the spaces here because the application thinks its html and it give a line break as an output, so in simple words use line break meaning the br tag for new lines it will fix πŸ™‚

  4. I guess I’m not using enough spaces or something, because the code isn’t showing again……Trust me, your code is in there

  5. I just installed your plugin on my site. It’s working perfectly, but I had one question. I downloaded the plugin through the WP interface, and I’m wondering where the files are being stored. They aren’t in the regular plugin area on the http://ftp...

    1. hi Hannah, you must be able to find the plugin files at the following folder,


      hope this helps πŸ™‚

  6. Thank you SO MUCH for this plugin. This NEEDS to be part of the WordPress core. I will donate as soon as I finish and get paid on my current project.

    One suggestion though, is you might think about using CSS and making the whole widget header block a clickable area rather than just the text. You know, more like a button? Anyway, I’m not at all complaining! I searched for something like this for a LONG time. Thank you.

    1. Hi David Welcome!

      Glad you liked the plugin, and sorry for the late reply, have been busy with work last week.

      Coming to suggestion all suggestions and ideas are most welcomed πŸ™‚
      Right now the title section is already clickable, so i couldn’t figure out what you said David. Let me know again and i’ll look into it πŸ™‚

  7. Great Plugin that I was looking for!
    Weird that WP does not include this ….

    Anyway. The box to check “add paragraph…” does not work for me. I have to either use a or to have a paragraph (the first one gives me a smaller font, the later, more space between paragraphs, but a bigger font).

    The box for paragraph works well with the WP text box …

    1. Glad you like the plugin Sebastien πŸ™‚
      sure i’ll look into the paragraph issue and will release version 1.1.5 and i’ll need your input if the changes worked fine?

      1. No prob. Will update.

        In the meantime, I just add a at the beginning of a text/link – and that is not a big issue, so no worries πŸ™‚

        What is mots important is to be able to link the title of the box, which you provided from the start!

  8. Hey mate, great plugin!

    I was wondering, is it’s possible to have the Widget Title to parse HTML aswell?

    This is the Widget Title!


  9. First I wanted to say that this is a great plugin, very useful and straightforward and I was going to use it on my site to display custom fields. I worked out a very nice bunch of php code that calls up the contents of the custom fields and displays them as links to searches for more posts with those same custom field values. I worked perfectly.
    However, I just upgraded to WordPress 3.0 and the code gives me errors saying that the code is invalid. I checked the syntax and everything, in fact identical code put elsewhere in the theme works just fine. Therefore, there must be something wrong with this plugin’s compatibility with wordpress 3.0. I would greatly appreciate it if you would look into it! Feel free to email me if you want some specifics about what php code is giving errors. Thanks!

    1. Hy Karl,
      Thanks for letting me know, i’d like to know what kind of error you get you can email me at peplamb[at]gmail[dot]com and i’ll get back to you or you can just drop a comment in here πŸ™‚
      ( works fine for me though so far with WP 3.0 )

  10. Hi, I have a pretty weird problem.

    I designed a wp-site locally and used your plugin.
    Uploaded the site to an online test site – did all the stuff, backup, fresh wp install, export and changed database, but the one and only thing that doesn’t seem to work is your plugin.
    I mean it does work if I add NEW linkable text/php widgets, but the ones from my local site are gone.
    I checked the options table and did find the widgets, in option “sidebar_widgets”. All the other sidebar widgets show up – except yours.

    Very stange – do you have any idea’s?

    1. Hi Phil,
      you just have to copy the flash object or embed code into the box which looks like
      <object ...> </object> or <embed />
      hope this helps πŸ™‚

  11. Great idea for a widget!

    It seems to be acting strangely on my site however. If I add a URL as intended, then the font size becomes huge and the column title gets distorted and inconsistent (like a different header size or something). If I just use it without a URL, it appears fine.

    Any idea what is causing this? Am I doing something wrong?

  12. I would really like to see a simple editor that allows me to change font size, decoration, hover effect for the title and would donate

  13. Hello, I have a question about the plugin. It does not get the same font-color as the other plugins and widgets. The widgets I use with your plugin have a grey heading – while the rest of the plugins/widgets have a black heading. Is there any way to change this?

    1. It depends if your title is a link it might change to a different color depending on your CSS you could change it in your CSS though

  14. awesome widget. maybe a dumb question, but is there a way to change the color of the title font? i’m usig it for a twitter feed on my page, only the title is purple, whereas i’d like it to remain black to match the other widget titles. thanks.

    1. Yes you can with CSS if you are unable then may be i will provide additional feature so you could just choose or give your own color how does that sound?

  15. The most recent update to Linkable Title Html and PHP Widget caused much of our widget text to be deleted entirely! Thankfully, we had backups in place. Just an FYI.

    1. There were no major changes, how did you update the plugin? were you updating other plugins? I tested it on my machine and it doesn’t do that, please let me know…

  16. Linkable Title Html and Php Widget

    I just downloaded this plugin. Yes it works but the font is brown, and disappears with the back ground of my non changeable WP theme.

    Can I change the color somehow. I need white.

    Thank you,

    1. Sure you will have this feature in next release many have been asking for this and you will have it in a week πŸ™‚

  17. Hello again peplamb,

    A strange thing has happened. After I posted that last post. I deactivated the plugin. And then fully removed it from my plugins folder. Yet when ever I now make a new Test wigjets for my side bar I get the same effect. It is as if the plugin is still functioning, but I have fully removed it. Also the text wigjets continues to link to the same link, all of them.

    Any Ideas how I can get it out of my blog?


  18. Hi,

    I hope my post was clear, the problem is that the plug-in seems to have overwritten or corrupted the regular “Text widget”. I have fully removed it, but when I try to put a regular “Text widget” in the same spot it gives me the same result…I will say that so far it is only if I put the text widget in the same order on the side bar, but I need it last, yet I can not get it to behave normally anymore….any ideas? Do I need to replace an original file from the original theme? And if so can you tell me which file houses the widgets? (and by replacing the file will i loose any of the site? )

    thanks you for your help, also possible this bug will help with development as well. You seem like a very nice person as I read through all posts first before adding mine.

    Thanks Gary

    1. hey Gary hi again,
      that cannot happen, are you having some kind of caching plugin? let me know or is there a way i can look into it?

  19. Hello again,

    Well I’ve tried again this morning to fix the problem. The plug-in is completely removed and any Widgets I use in the side bar takes on your plug in function. So if I put categories, custom menu, meta, any of them, they all become links to the same link. No matter what I do, even with your plug-in removed.

    Hopefully I will only have to replace an original file from the template to correct this.
    But I don’t know which one is responsible for the widgets.

    The original files in my theme are these.

    Please help as I can not publish my page with this problem and cannot continue to develop it.
    Thanks, Gary

    1. Rest assured thats nothing to do with changing the theme that wouldn’t solve your problem im suspecting you have a caching plugin installed Gary

  20. PS: I also tried reinstalling your plug-in, activating it, then deactivating it and removing all files. then checking on web site with ftp that the files were removed and all were.

    I am trying to give you full description of situation.


  21. Hello,

    Thank you for getting back to me. I only have one plugin active and it is for creating columns in a page. If you go to my page and scroll down on the right to just below the calendar you will see a widget which is the “archives” widget (not even the text one), any widget that I put in the side bar now becomes linked to the same link with the same functions.

    WP Widget Cache

    Cache the output of your blog widgets. Usually it will significantly reduce the SQL queries to your database and speed up your site.

    * Description

    I’ve been looking up widget cache and found:

    There’re some widgets that should not be cached!!
    Some widgets are dynamic,
    If you use such dynamic widgets, don’t worry, just left the cache expire time field empty or 0, which will prevent the WP Widget Cache to do anything.

    Although so far I have been unable to find the widget cache.


    1. As said earlier it is nothing to do with the plugin but the cache issue Gary, you MUST disable any cache plugins disable “WP Widget Cache” don’t use it if you use it you will face the cache problem if the plugin has any option to clear the cache please go for it if you still face problems give me the access to your blog and i will look into it.

  23. If I cant fix this today, i think I am going to have to wipe out my entire blog and start over because of this plugin. I have found no plugin cashe whatso ever.

  24. Hello,

    I need to hear from you. I have now deleted my entire blog. I have reinstalled word-press. I have reinstalled my theme. I have spent the last 2 hours. And the effect of your plugin remains!!!!

    What is happening please.

    1. please note again this is not the issue of the plugin but the cache plugin you have on your blog always be careful a plugin can also break other plugins, my plugin is just an extension of default wordpress plugin, you are at your risk if you use other plugins that caches “Linkable Title Html and Php Widget” thats nothing to do with the plugin itself breaking

  25. Thank you for responding. I will give you access to my account as the problem has not been solved.

    Here’s the update.
    I just spent one hour with tech support, they deleted my entire account.
    Please understand the entire account was deleted. Not a single file left.
    I reinstalled word-press from scratch.
    I rebuild the front page of my site. And still the function of your plug in remains.

    They checked for any type of cash and found none.
    Please take a look at my account, don’t worry about messing anything up as I will probably redo it again.

    Note: The problem is above and below the calendar in the right sidebar.
    and only it seems in this area, any widget I place in this area takes on your plug in characteristics.

    Thank you for looking into this:

    site log-in link:

    username: hidden
    password: hidden

    If you have any difficulty with this username and pass please let me know.

    Thank you,

    1. You had problems in your html code in the widgets
      1). never have body tags in the widgets
      2). always end your anchor tags, you didn’t end them
      3). always end the img tags, they are self closing tags

  26. PS:

    It looks different in both browsers, I uninstalled both fire-fox and IE and reinstalled them.

    I use Firefox, where the problem is more obvious.


  27. Thank you so much, I am not sure what you did? It was just code? Not a cache problem? At any rate I really appreciate it. I should have had you look at it 2 days ago!

    Thank you again very much,


  28. Hi there,

    I have installed your plugin however when I try to place the widgets in (replacing current plain text widgets), they do not carry the styling from my site’s custom theme.

    At the moment they look like this (see screenshot at:
    But needs to look like this:

    I assume it needs some custom CSS styling…? But I’m not sure how to do this.

    The current CSS for my footer (which works perfectly with the normal ‘text box’ widgets), is below:

    Also, the current contents of my functions.php for that section (if relevant) is:

    __( ‘Footer Widget Area’, ‘twentyten’ ),
    ‘id’ => ‘footer-widget-area’,
    ‘description’ => __( ‘The footer widget area’),
    ‘before_widget’ => ”,
    ‘after_widget’ => ”,
    ‘before_title’ => ”,
    ‘after_title’ => ”,
    ) );


    1. Woops, that code didn’t show up properly:

      CSS code:

      /* footer start */
      #footer {
      background: url(../images/bg-footer.jpg);
      .footer-holder {
      background: url(../images/bg-footer-holder.gif) repeat-x;
      height: 24px;
      .footer-frame {
      margin:0 auto;
      padding:30px 0 0 20px;
      #footer .frames {
      .footer-frame ul {position:relative;}
      .footer-frame ul li {line-height:16px;}
      .footer-frame ul li a {color:#fff;}

      background: url(../images/separator02.gif) no-repeat 0 50%;
      .footer-nav li a {color:#d7c4b7!important;}
      /* footer end */

      Theme functions code:

      // Area 2, located below the Primary Widget Area in the sidebar. Empty by default.
      register_sidebar( array(
      'name' => __( 'Footer Widget Area', 'twentyten' ),

      'before_widget' => '',
      'after_widget' => '',
      'before_title' => '',
      'after_title' => '',
      ) );

    2. Hey Noelle,
      looking at your theme if you miss, li tag
      <li class="widget-container widget_text frame01" id="text-3">
      around the widget you will not find the frame around the widget so check for it,
      let me know if you need any help (i might be late at responding today though, Sunday going out for dinner) πŸ™‚

  29. Little plugin is very handy for affiliate link website. Thanks for sharing. Consider to mask target URL with affiliate link masking/cloaking.

    1. why do you think thats a good Idea? you could do that with no title and having all your text or images in the widget wrapped around the anchor tag that would do it

      1. Could you please clarify what you mean by “having all your text or images in the widget wrapped around the anchor tag” in your response to mas?

        I too would like to have my whole widget made into a link but can’t work out how and I didn’t understand what you were suggesting here.

        Many thanks

  30. Fatal error: Call to undefined function self_admin_url() in /home/radioaum/public_html/wp-content/plugins/google-analytics-visits/google-analytics-visits.php on line 1316

    Plus I cannot see where do i register for goggle analatical


    1. Hey Mehul which version of WordPress are you using let me know and i will look into the issue
      thanks for reporting!!!

  31. Please disregard my last comment (I assume it’s awaiting moderation). I found a setting in the Atahualpa theme options in which I can choose whether links within widgets are bolded or not. Problem solved.

  32. Your comment is awaiting moderation.

    I wanted to make my text widget title linkable, so I uploaded your plugin. But under the linkable title, I want to see all the pages I uploaded to the website on the sidebar. (like Pages feature of wordpress).

    Can you please help me with this?

    1. Hey Nazli,

      I am not sure what you are asking about what do you mean by Pages feature in the widget? you can always insert any link there absolutely any link it can be a Page, Post, Category Page, Tag Page, Search Result Page, or any external page you just have to drop a link ( a url ) there πŸ™‚

      Hope this helps!

  33. Hey Brenda,

    What i meant is this,
    1). do not have a title for the widget
    2). place an image or text in the widget
    3). surround step 2 with an anchor tag (a <a href="A URL HERE">SOME TEXT OR IMAGE</a>).
    Thanks it πŸ™‚

    if this is not what you are looking for could you give me an example of what you need?

    1. Glad you like the plugin Jane πŸ™‚
      Right now it takes from the Theme’s CSS and you have no control over the title as it doesn’t have a class or an id to add custom CSS to your theme, if you had control over the title the CSS you would be adding will be
      text-decoration: underline;
      If you need this feature I will add it in the next release probably this weekend fine Jane?

  34. Love your plugin, however I keep running into an issue with validation, and Im not sure the culprit ( started off with 50+ errors, and the last 8 are from this widget) Ive tried cleaning up everything I can think of, but its still giving me :

    document type does not allow element “li” here; missing one of “ul”, “ol”, “menu”, “dir” start-tag

    …tlehtmlandphpwidget-6″ class=”widget”>Our Locations

  35. Hello, your plugin is awesome. I want to request button “Show only at Frontpage” add to bottom of plugin.

    When you add this option to plugin, I’ll try to donate to you. πŸ™‚

  36. I think you should warp your elements in a css class or id. Call me crazy, but I want to hide the widget title. Now wouldn’t that be a cool feature to add in; maybe an additional checkbox where checking the box add style=”display: none;”. Of course you would have to have a css class or div to target.

    Not complaining. I love what you’ve created. I even enjoyed the music on your site!

    1. Glad you like the plugin πŸ™‚
      your ideas are great and i implemented CSS classes for Google Analytics Visits plugin i must do the same with this plugin too forgive me since i am busy with my thesis i will put this feature in the queue and will be adding these features once i am done with my semester hope that is ok…
      Thank you for sharing your ideas all these ideas make the plugin more lovable πŸ™‚
      GOD bless!

  37. Love this, but still having problems with widget title font color.

    #sidebar a, #sidebar-2 a, #sidebar-container a {
    color: #780A09;

    won’t override my theme CSS. I think a lot of people have this question, so could you please post the proper CSS. Thanks a lot!

    1. Hi. I still haven’t figured out how to fix this and would be grateful if you could respond with the CSS for that title text. Thanks.

      1. Hey thanks for bringing this up and sorry for the late reply, i will try my best to have an id or a class such that a CSS can be wrapped around it, i would like you to wait on this until January please because my semester is ending this month (December) and i will need to concentrate on it these last days… Hope you understand and thank you πŸ™‚

  38. I could use some help with your Widget. I’m new to WordPress and am just trying recently to build a website. I’m totally stuck on a couple of things. First, I might be misunderstanding the functionality of your Widget. I thought that I could use it to turn my site title (in this case Join GIN Now!) into a clickable link to the main GIN Website. I don’t think I’m using it correctly. I’ve put it in the sidebar but nothing seems to be happening when I try to use it. Maybe it makes a linkable page title and I’m misunderstanding it’s functionality?

    Also, this isn’t a question about your Widget, but I would be forever in your debt if you could help me out. I don’t want the comment or blog or whatever you call it on my Home page or other pages except my Forum Page. I’ve tried using the fix suggested in the Codex–i.e. setting the home page as a static page in the settings reading section and setting my forum page default for posts but it doesn’t seem to be working. The home page and the other page all display a comment section and I don’t want that. I just want static content on my other pages and I can’t seem to figure out what I’m doing wrong. When I uploaded this theme, it didn’t come with a sample page and I just want plain pages on my site except for the forum page.

    I would have posted this question in the regular WordPress forum but I can’t log in for some reason. It keeps asking me to reset my password or claims it doesn’t recognize my username.

    I really hope you can help me, I’m totally stuck. Any information you have would be very much appreciated!

    Hope you have a great day!

    1. I am totally here to help you πŸ™‚

      hope this helps πŸ™‚

      1. I am madly in love with you! Seriously! It worked! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I couldn’t figure out how to get the comments off the page and misunderstood the terminology a bit I think. I read and re-read the instructions and was completely stumped. I didn’t see that Screen Options button. Anyways, I’m so relieved.

        I’m temporarily strapped for cash but will definitely try to send you something as soon as I can.

        You’re so kind. Thank you so much and I love the tunes on this site. It’s pretty good music. Positive Alternative music. Who knew?

        1. You are welcome πŸ™‚
          Could you let me know what version of wordpress you are using? In case your wordpress is version 3 or above you will find ‘Screen Options’ (to the top right corner) when you are editing your post or page.

          Steps again in detail to disable comments of a given post or page in WordPress
          1). Just click on it and it should drop down, then you must check ‘Discussions‘ once you do that Discussions field containing two check boxes will appear just below your post or page edit content area.
          2). Uncheck ‘Allow comments‘ and comments will be disabled for that post or page,
          3). Update the post or page you are editing and comments will be disabled πŸ™‚

          Glad you like the songs they are airing from air1 radio, and correct most of them are Alternative genre.

  39. Sorry, I just got the Widget working and was able to create a link. I guess I misunderstood the functionality of the Widget and apologies for wasting everyone’s time….although, I could still use help removing the comments section from my homepage and other pages…

  40. hi,

    Awesome plugin, can’t fault it in anyway apart from the following part of code,


    We are now monitoring all Eval PHP Functions on our servers and letting you no about this, on line 45 in file (linkable-title-html-and-php-widget.php)

    It is such a great plugin and don’t want it turning up on everyone’s wordpress scans as a threat,

    Many Thanks..

    1. Thanks for the compliment πŸ™‚
      This is interesting though, the plugin needs to have eval function to execute php script in the widget, hmmmm, will think about it and come up with a solution ( i cannot think of any alternative so far though )
      Thanks for bringing this up Jae πŸ™‚

  41. Hey there,

    First of all, thanks for an absolutely invaluable plugin. I use it on just about every site I have πŸ™‚

    I am trying to make the widget title itself style-able. I understand that WP strips that outside of theme files, however I was reading this article and tried it meself. It went poorly LOL.

    I would be stoked to see this in a future version! Keep up the great work mate!


  42. I just updated through the site and now my widgets page won’t come up.
    If I disable the plugin, my widgets page comes back up.
    Is there a missing tag in your code or something?

    1. Ben thank you for bringing this to my notice it helps!
      I will look into this issue as soon as possible (in the next 6-12 hours).

  43. I am wondering if there is a way to eliminate the area under the title so that each button is a link and can be stacked below one another without having the extra blank space between them. Thank you in advance!

  44. so, i’ve just added this plug in which i think will be awesome for what i’m trying to do. but, i can’t get it to work πŸ™
    i have made a button and wanted it to be clickable through this widget. here is the code I put into the text box:

    and the images show up in the box but it is not clickable and nothing happens. i have checked the box to open in a new window and have entered the url i wanted the clickthrough to go to in the title url section
    yet no dice.
    any thoughts?

    1. Hey Josie,

      I didn’t receive your code could you email it to me instead? save it in a text file and then attach the code and send it to me in an email and i will go over it ok?

      1. just tried emailing it to you but noticed that the email you contacted me with is a no-reply address. can you email me your email? thanks
        God Bless

  45. I’m getting the following error when i try to implement PHP in the content. Any direction?

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘<' in… on line 1.

    The PHP I'm trying to use is:

    have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?>

    80) {
    $title_short = substr(the_title('','',FALSE), 0, 80);
    preg_match('/^(.*)\s/s', $title_short, $matches);
    if ($matches[1]) $title_short = $matches[1];
    $title_short = $title_short.'...';
    $title_short = the_title('','',FALSE);

    1. hey nick,

      i guess some of the code you posted here is lost, could you email me the code with the code in text file?

  46. well… guess it doesn’t display all the code in this format… i’ve got the “<?php" starting off the PHP… is this correct?

  47. Hi there – absolutely LOVE this widget! However, I am having a lot of trouble styling the title link to the colour I would like. Ordinarily I would just go into my style sheet – but for some reason I can’t locate the div that the title link goes under to try and overwrite it!

    Can you help?

    Much appreciated!

    1. hi Julie,

      In the next release I will make sure to add Master Styling support so you style the title right in the plugin options page or per widget haven’t planned it yet πŸ™‚
      Would you be fine with that? (this might take time though since i will be away from 8th for a month and will do it after i return) or do you want a quick fix where i look your website and give a quick style?

      let me know πŸ™‚

  48. Hi,

    Any idea why the text and title is being converted with cufon font, I dont want that but the entire text is being rendered in cufont font style. I am not sure why this happening.


    1. Hi Jaswant there isn’t any font conversion within the plugin it could mostly be your theme’s css, email me a screenshot or let me know where you are facing the problem!

  49. Hi,

    I am trying to make this plugin work with WPML but it can’t read content strings. Just other good widgets are translatable and you can change content for widgets to different languages. I would like to set up widget so it could link to estonian content on 1 page and on the same time when the page is in different language then link from there to the matching language links. I hope you understand what I was trying to say πŸ™‚



  50. I was wondering if the color issue was ever addressed. I love this plugin, but the color is an issue I can seem to resolve. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    1. Hey Katie you are welcome and you have the title color support from within the widget now as you requested in Linkable Title Html and Php Widget version 1.2.0 πŸ™‚

  51. Love your plugin for linking widget titles to web page.

    I’m able to make the linkable title the color I like, but would also like it to change color when hovering. How can I do that? Thanks.

  52. hey great widget, works fine, but im getting this error message in my wordpress dashboard:

    Warning: stristr() [function.stristr]: Empty delimiter in /home/content/58/10042958/html/wp-content/plugins/linkable-title-html-and-php-widget.php on line 195

    any ideas?
    thanks again for the widget!

  53. Great Job!!! Your screenshot above is out of date. Sending some $ to you today. Would love to be able to define hover color and font too. This is one of the most useful plugins I’ve seen.

  54. Hi PepLamb,
    I love your plugin it really help me out with the sidebar widget. I have a custom theme and their sidebar didn’t have the link option for the header. This one really do the job. I have one question though, I add your widget on top of my custom widget because I want to use the custom widget content and the header link of your plugin. My problem is that there is a white space between the two widget, who can I edit your css to make the header text and no bar line so it will be a little on top of the other.

    This is running both widget:
    This is how I really want to look like:

    Thank you

  55. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have a blog site, and have a shopping site as a subdomain. This worked perfectly to get visitors to my subdomain shopping site.
