Insert a Page Widget (Wordpress plugin)

This is a Wordpress plugin, which allows you to insert a page into a Wordpress sidebar as a widget. It was written and tested with Wordpress 2.8.6 but may work with other versions.

I made it as a quick alternative to having a WYSIWYG HTML editing widget, as I couldn't find a plugin which make an HTML editor into a widget for Wordpress 2.8. With this plugin you can create a new page with an image and link and bit of text and put it into a sidebar. Also see the similar Bits of HTML Wordpress plugin.
