renderPartial() vs widget

Hello there,

There is situation: I have Topic page and topic page have blocks like related topics, other topics from that user and etc.

And I was wondering what will be better to use widgets or just renderPartial()?

Thanks for opinion.

I’d like to know this too.

Whats the difference and when should you use either?

Was discussed recently in this thread (help with widgets and partials which one):


renderPartial needs a controler. Widgets don’t, I think.
