What is Widgetic?
Widgetic for WordPress is a plugin that connects your WordPress site to Widgetic, so you will need to have a Widgetic account first. Widgetic is a widget publishing tool that allows you to create customizable widgets using a simple WYSIWYG Editor. Widgetic is absolutely free for up to 5 widgets, with unlimited number of uses (for example you can create hundreds of widgets based on the Image Zoom Widget). Widgetic is a great choice if you want to engage your users.
If you do not have a Widgetic account, create one here in 20 seconds.
The widgets are hosted on our platform and we continuously improve them based on user feedback. To add a widget to your site, we use embed codes, just like YouTube.
We’re constantly adding new widgets to our library, make sure you filter by date. If you need a specific widget, let us know!
Development of the plugin happens on GitHub: /widgetic-for-wordpress
