WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

What I'd really like is a nice widget that displays the_content() of a selected page or just has a rich text field and displays what's in that. I figured there would be something like this around, but I can't find it. (Maybe because the search terms are too cloudy and overloaded?)

I already wrote an incredibly simple widget that displays the_content() of a hardcoded page (and hid the page itself with Page Link Manager, but if there is something a little bit configurable and tested I'd love to have that instead. Any clues?

Thanks! It's a mystery I didn't find any of those on my own... –  Jesse Millikan Oct 21 '10 at 4:00

How about the Rich Widget?

I would actually recomend using the Rich Text Widget as it uses the built in TinyMCE editor that comes with WordPress and doesn't add any extra javascript etc

You may want to try the Black Studio TinyMCE Widget plugin, which adds a WYSIWYG text widget based on the standard TinyMCE WordPress editor.
