Why a Plugin?

There are several reasons why we released the Gabfire Widget Pack plugin. Here are a few:

1) Contribute to the WP Community – Some of our widgets are quite popular, and we received several emails asking for the code. So rather than limit them to only the Gabfire community, we decided to package our most common widgets into a plugin that could be used by the entire WordPress community.

2) Give End-User Control – Our themes are quite robust in features and options. We found that some users took advantage of the various widgets, however some did not. Therefore, in an effort to allow the end user to decide which widgets they wanted on their site, moving the widgets into a plugin made more sense. Now, you can decide which widget to enable or disable on your site, and users can take advantage of them on any theme.

3) Less is More – There are plenty of plugins and widgets available through WordPress. Depending on your needs, some may be relevant and useful, whereas some are just extra bloat on your site. By transferring the widgets into a free plugin, our themes are lighter out-of-the-box.

Where do I download plugin?

Similar to any other WordPress plugin, you can grab the Gabfire Widget Pack plugin from the WordPress Plugin repository. Try it out. If you like it, give it a rating on the repository to let more people know about it. If you have any questions related to it, feel free to post a comment below.

    Thanks for this plugin. Recently I’ve seen many theme companies release free plugin to communities, this is a great way to give back to the communities.

    Hi Guys!
    This is awesome that you have decided to go with a plugin – the best solution for WP I think. Do you plan to update this plugin with a more configurable version of Widget: Recent or Popular Posts Widget – which will allow to display latest post with a total control?
    This really needed option – especially for news sites. You would need to include multiple instances of the widget and be able to mange the output – both visually and strategically:

    widget 1: show 3 posts (1,2,3) from “Loacl News” category
    widget 2: show next 3 posts (4,5,6) from “Loacl News” category

    Really good example for this is joomla extension from JXTC: K2 Content Wall.

    Would be happy to elaborate on the topic if you need any of my input.
