Wikipedia is a pretty special website. It has a ton of content for you to learn from and go through. Many of us use the site to get started with our research projects. Have you ever wanted to display Wikipedia content on your website? Â Wikipedia Widget is just the plugin you need for the job. It shows Wikipedia results depending on the content of your posts.
Wikipedia Widget is simple to use. You can define a default search string to get started or use the current post title. The script lets you show and hide the search form and use cache to handle speed issues better. Results are formatted in a clean fashion and include links and pictures. This plugin relies on Wikipedia’s API to get the results.
Should you add the Wikipedia Widget to your site? It is up to you. But this script does make searching Wikipedia content a lot easier on your site.
