Whew!! Errr… I mean Woo!
Many people ask me about the simplest, most stable (and free) way to add a tabbed widget to their theme (without mucking in advanced code)… and this is the solution you’ve been waiting for!
Simply download, upload and activate the plugin. Then you will see that WooDojo has added a sidebar element, right below the “Dashboard” link, where all these options live:
I personally am, at the time of this writing, running “Tabs”, “Dynamic Menus”, and “WooSidebars”.
Tabs gives me the tabbed widget (which automatically contains “Latest”, “Popular”, “Comments” & “Tags”) while Dynamic Menus and WooSidebars let me make the most of many focused pages on my blog including some sales pages.
WooSidebars is a somewhat different alternative to using the Widget Logic plugin and once activated is found under Appearnces -> Widget Area (as well as in each post editor).
I found it odd that there was no widget to let you easily add the simple social media icons (and links to your profiles). This is such an elementary widget that it “feels” like it belongs here (even though WooThemes do not usually include one either). They do however have “Social Widgets” that are single widgets for a few individual social networks. Even better would be if it also included something similar to the WP MashSocial widget!
An awesome little plugin from the Ninjas at WooThemes. This plugin gives you the feature options you want… while not downloading/activating all of them. This makes the already clean plugin respectful of your sites resources. Get all the features you want and none of the one’s you don’t!

PS: WooThemes is on my A+ list for being a company that not only creates kick-butt themes, but is fully GPL licensing compliant, and gives lots of cool stuff back to the WordPress community. I carry a developers license with them and definitely recommend the things they create!
