Hi,

I'm trying to build a site using Wordpress and just wondered how I could do the following?

I've assigned a sidepanel to the template, and enabled widgets in that panel. I want the admin of the site to be able to add their own widgets into the side panel which will consist of HTML. I then want them to be able to select which pages that block of HTML should appear on.

I've noticed there's a text/HTML widget in wordpress already, but it just gives you a textfield with no ability to upload an image or easily format the text. When the widget is rendered in the template it also shows the widget title, which we don't want to display.

Does anyone know how I can do this? Is there a plugin?

For image-only widgets, you may want to look at the Image Widget plugin.

For your problem of wanting a different sidebar for each page, you should try the Multiple Sidebars plugin.

If you're not into writing straight HTML, there is this Plugin that adds an editor to a text widget, which may work for your needs - though I haven't tried it.

Finally, if you want the titles to always be hidden, you may need to add some CSS to your theme. Something like the following should handle most cases:

h2.widgettitle { display: none; }
