Making Changes to Meta Widget

Meta Widget is responsible for the display of login information for registered users to access a Self Hosted WordPress site. It can be displayed in the sidebars or the footer. For a single author website, it can be hidden altogether.

There is no way that the five items in this widget can be changed without tampering the code. It’s a WordPress Default. But there might be situations where we might want to edit/alter the five items. Take for example if the WordPress installation is hosted on a private Intranet. In that case the link for will be useless link.


This can be however achieved by the use of the Custom Meta Widget.

Once the plugin is installed, go to Appearance — Widgets and drag the Custom Meta to the sidebars.
