The Simple Widgets plugins adds 10 great new widgets to your WordPress Dashboard that provides new and also extends the functionality of already existing widgets. When using the default widgets there may be times when you find you may be limited in the use of these widgets, however not anymore.

The plugin is available is 2 versions. The “lite” version with contains 9 widgets and the “pro” version which contains an amazing 11 widgets. The lite edition is a free version however you are limited in the use of this version. The lite version will not allow for new widgets to be added and does not allow you to modify the T2 templates for each widget.

By purchasing the pro version of GD Simple Widgets you will receive any future widget releases when updates are available. At the time of this article there are already 3 new widgets in development.

Each widget is highly customizable by the use of the plugin options and the clever use of editable T2 templates. Each widget has a range of display and filter options that will help you set it the way you want and to show only the data you need. All templates support very advanced CSS classes that can be used for better visual manipulation of rendered elements.
