You can absolutely do that. This plugin aims to prevent errors when copy/pasting raw html code from Tilde, it makes it much easier to install and manage your widget. In the future additional options will be avaiable to further configure your widget.

You only need the Widget ID from Tilde. It can be found at Account > Widget.

The Tilde Widget does not collect any data and does not send any data from your WordPress installation. The plugin inserts HTML on your page that makes your users browser do two requests:

  1. GET cdn.towoo.io/widget.js to load the widget code, that renders the content, displays the modal and so on.
  2. GET api.towoo.io/v1/widgets/{id} to load the widget configuration and initial events from the Tilde API.

The only thing sent to Tilde (Towoo, the authors of Tilde and this widget) is the normal browser headers such as user-agent, locale, etc. The API request does not require sessions or any user identifiable tokens.

The hosted widget.js does not track or insert malicious code on your page in any way. This can be easily verified by observing network activity in your browsers Developer Tools.
