More Widgets from Automattic
Not to be outdone by Six Apart, Automattic unveils its Sidebar Widgets on the same day. The Automattic Widgets are a simple WordPress plugin that allows you to customize your sidebar. It’s pretty amazing actually it only works with select themes. It had been developed for WordPress.com but they’ve released into the general WordPress community.
From the Automattic website:
“Widgets” is just a silly buzzword we’ve chosen for this sidebar-chopping plug-in we have developed. They could have been called Gadgets or Gizmos or Wizbangs or Whatevers. On the surface, they’re just things you can use to personalize your WordPress site without knowing HTML. Way down deep, they may be something entirely more significant. Anyway, here’s a peek:

Even more widgets
The plugin comes with several useful and entertaining widgets but we expect great numbers of widgets to appear over the coming days and weeks. We’ll feature the best new widgets right here.
