This plugin provides a widget that looks very similar to the standard ‘text’ widget. The user can enter a title and some text in the usual way. In addition the user may cut and paste a url into the ‘URL’ field. The whole of the widget then becomes a link to this url. The intention is to simplify the generation of a link in a widget for those users with little or no html experience.
A user may visit the Admin -> Appearance -> Widgets page, and will be able to select the “Display Text and URL” widget and place it in any desired Sidebar. The user can then enter a title (if desired), text and a url. The text will then become a link to the url.
It is the user’s responsibility to ensure that the url is valid and correctly inserted.
The text can be descriptive of the target url.
