    As a Drupal user, I'm used to being able to add "blocks" to websites which the end user can then edit using the nice Drupal WYSIWYG editor.

    I'm basically looking for the same facility in Wordpress. WP has the built in "Add Text" widget, but it doesn't include a WYSIWYG input box.

    The only ones I've found are 1 year+ old and out of date. Anyone know of one that works? This isn't a huge stretch, surely there's something out there that does this.

    You're kinda stuck with include()'s unless you find a plugin that does it for you.

    If you like Drupal, just use the blog module. Theme interface is way more clean and flexible anyway.

    Client has specifically said she wants Wordpress :hs:

    I can't believe there isn't something as simple as this. I'm hoping someone will come to the rescue with a plugin that does this.

    Limited four blocks per page. :mamoru: Not surprised, but it should fit your needs. :dunno:

    Nevermind, got it working.

    I was probably doing the stupidest thing I'd done in quite some time.
