WordPress Plugin: Custom Class Text Widget

Every now and then at Inigo Media @Ben_Seven likes to come sit by me and pick through my work finding issues and generally tries to cause me the greatest amount of stress. Yesterday was no different, apart from he had quite a cool idea regarding WordPress widgets.

Currently there is no way to define multiple widgets with the same class – unless you do all or none. @Ben_Seven had the idea of somehow getting a custom class into the widget area while still maintaining the general look/feel & presentation on the front end.

I give to you; Custom Class Text Widget.
