Digitally Imported WordPress Sidebar Widget

By request, we are making the Digitally Imported WordPress Sidebar Widget available to everyone. It was originally just a quick script that we wrote to support our favorite internet dance radio site. The code is not elegant but it works. So here it is.

    Nice widget. To fit to wp2.6 design rules please add at line 138 styleclass definition “widget” to div declaration e.g.

    echo '<div class="widget">' . "\n";

    It works, but not in damn IE7 :-)

    change 138 into

    echo '<li class="widget">' . "\n";

    and 151 into

    echo '</li>' . "\n";

    This should work for ie/ff/opera.
