    WordPress text widget lets you add any text including AdSense ads script in the sidebar, but it gets tricky when you have to execute a PHP code in the sidebar. By default WordPress doesn’t execute PHP codes in sidebar, and you need to add codes in theme file to execute it. If you are a coder or a programmer, you can easily do that but if you are non-tech user like me, you will find it hard to do. Here I’m sharing two plugins which will let you save PHP code in blog sidebar and execute it. This is useful when you want to run ads on specific category. Something which widget logic plugin does.

    Hi Harsh

    Does this work with the current version of wp 2.9.2? If so, that would be great and I could use it asap.
