Need replacement for Display Widget plugin

According to Ted Gerstie, in another question on this forum Display Widget has had malware attached to it and is no longer available. What other plugin would work to be able to complete this class?

Here's a good post on that very topic: https://dev.institute/blog/display-widgets-alternative/

Thanks for the info. This is very helpful. Do you by any chance know which one most closely resembles Display Widget, so that it will be easier to complete the course and make things function in a similar way to what the course requires?

Unfortunately I haven't used any of those solutions, so I can't provide much insight into which one might work best.

No problem. Ted Gertie had found one that almost matched the original plugin and I used that. Will look at all of them for use in future sites, though, so it's great to have the info.
