Sometimes in your WordPress theme you need to execute custom php code in a widget, because you want to display different information according to the category you are in, or simply because you need to execute a php script into that widget.There are a lot of plugins doing this task, adding a new type of widget generally called “php widget”, but rather than installing a plugin this simple job can be done simply adding in functions.php file of your theme these few lines:


function execute_php($html){







return $html;
