The ThemeLoom widgets that are bundled with our themes provide some powerful and flexible tools for building your site easily and quickly. Users of our themes found them so helpful that they wanted to be able to use them with other themes too! So we have now bundled them as a free plugin.
Show Posts Widget
Drag and drop to fill the widgetized areas of your theme with posts and post thumbnails.
You can choose a post category, the number of posts to display and select whether to show images, headings and/or the post excerpts.
You can even select a column layout, so that in larger widgetized areas such as those on our theme’s home pages, you can have your posts display in 2, 3 or 4 columns layouts.
Show Pages Widget
The Show Pages widget does pretty much what the Show Posts widget does, but for pages.
You can show page thumbnails (yes that’s right!) for all child pages of a selected parent page. You can show in a column layout and select headings and excerpts as with the Show Posts widget.
Drag this widget into any widgetized area of your theme and choose the number of tweets for a display of your tweets that is fully integrated into your theme’s design.
Now using the new Twitter API 1.1.
Facebook Page Feed Widget
Tired of the awkward Facebook page widgets that just don’t look right in your theme? This one pulls the feed from your facebook page using the Graph API, and presents it with minimal styling, so that it works with your theme.
Especially useful for responsive themes like ours, since the default Facebook widgets don’t work responsively.
Show flickr images from a user or group. Uses the flickr official badge code.
The show posts and show pages widget functionality can also be accessed via a shortcode inside any page or post, giving you a very flexible way to build content layout.
