This plugin introduces the Widget API. It is required by all plugins that create widgets.
Widgets let you standardize, manage and control the layout and style of specific sections of your WYSIWYG area, all this at the press of a button. They group various elements together so you can easily move widgets around the surrounding content.
Widgets are fully customizable because they are based on our plugin system.
