Extend Post-widget?

Asked on February 15, 2016 in Development.

Is there a quick way to extend a widget, e.g. post-widget?
I’d like to show a certain blog-post and would like to select any post from the front-end (without adding a taxonomy or category to it).

I haven’t found a hint in the documentation how to do that?

Anyone?

Hi there,

You can only filter specific elements where a filter exists (please see our guide on using hooks and filters if you are unsure what this means) in the post widget file. If your modification adds new functionality like a new static column containing a specific post, then you need to create a custom widget that implements those elements (you can use the post widget as a starting point). This is covered here:
http://docs.layerswp.com/plugin-creation-guide/#adding-layers-builder-widgets

Thx, but wouldn’t it make sense to let me extend the Layers_Content_Widget n the same way I can extend the Layer_Widget class?

(Btw: for me the docs.layerswp.com site is dog-slow from here (Europe)… it took me 20 secs to open this page and reply..)
