MaxRef Widgets enables you to display multiple sidebar widgets to maximize how your visitors reference your posts, links, categories and comments. We will maintain and upgrade it here, and take your suggestions and comments below. Your donations will be appreciated to offset the continuing development expense.

Concepted by Scott Frangos, Managing Partner for *, and programmed by Antonie Potgieter of Tribulant Software, the plugin is a powerful way to add unlimited widgets on your sidebars to display posts only from a certain category, the links from a particular link category, posts, comments and more. Choose how many items appear, to display an RSS feed for categories, and how to sort the links presented. It uses the latest WordPress methods and functions and of course adapts the style of the WP 2.5 administration panel.


  1. Upload the whole plugin folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  2. Go to the Plugins page and activate the plugin.
  3. Go to your widgets area, and add a MaxRef Widget (as many as you want)
  4. Click on Edit to configure your new widget to display Posts by Category, Pages, Links by Category, or Comments, and then select sorting method and other options.
