WP Wapuu Widget


This plugin adds a widget that shows the official character of WordPress Japanese local site. This pretty character is called „わぷー(Wapuu)“ in Japanese.

„わぷー(Wapuu)“ was designed by Kazuko Kaneuchi under GPL v2 license or any later version.


  • Widget that shows the official character of WordPress Japanese local site.
  • Resizing the image by GD library 2.0.1 or higher.
  • Setting image background color.
  • Adding a link to the image.
  • Showing your description on the widget.
  • Setting font size for your description.
  • Support lightbox.
  • Localization: English(Default), 日本語(Japanese, UTF-8).


Some different sizes of images are prepared.

Available size: 125pixel, 150pixel, 175pixel, 200pixel, 380pixel

You can also set other size. If you set other size, the high-quality resized image will be created by GD library.

If GD library 2.0.1 or higher is not installed, the low-quality image will be shown, because the image is resized by the browser.
