    Thanks for your help. I said I would follow up on the conversation with 2046 here:

    [resolved] Getting error msg after install of easy widget.

    I have not gotten to the bottom of this problem and the situation now is that I have Easy installed and the website is working correctly. However, I cannot turn on my other plugin W3 Total Cache, and this is a problem. I also have a third plugin called WordPress Page Widgets that has allowed me to choose what widgets get shown for each category. I think there is a compatibility issue involving some combination of these three plugins. W3 Total Cache is likely not where the problem is originating but I can't turn it on at this time without major issues because it is not liking something. Could there be compatibility issues between Easy and W3 Total Cache. Or between Easy and WordPress Page Widgets?

    I have emailed W3 Total Cache to see if they can fix this issue too.

    W3 total cache is most likely not an issue.
    I use the Easy with w3tc on many sites with no problem at all.

    I will look at that.. any particular errors?

    Your plugin doesn't seem to work correctly with the WordPress Page Widgets plugin. For instance, when using the WordPress Page Widgets plugin to change which widgets appear on a particular post, your widget does display properly when the editor is open. I am under the impression that there is a conflict between these two plugins that is also causing the other problem I had above. To recap:

    The situation now is that I have both Easy and WordPress Page Widgets installed and the website is working correctly. However, I cannot turn on my other plugin W3 Total Cache, and this is a problem.

    ...can be. Easy has many things done it's own way. Especialy the controllers which are of two types (controller and restrictor). The "WordPress Page Widgets" forces its own logic before the widgets which has mostly no controlling logic and so it is easy to force "any" new logic in. Because there was none, there is nothing to conflict with.
    These two logics (Easy-WordPress Page Widgets) do no like each other, they beat them selves. They kinda substitute one another.
    They are not good pair.

    What I suggest you to do is.. Easy has a "Sidebar" VIEW brick. You can make a dummy sidebar with widget or widgets you would like to see here or there. Then simply use the Easy controllers as you would do for the post content and the whole sidebar will be shown or not based on that logic.

    Thanks very much for looking into this. I don't exactly understand what you mean but I get what you are getting at. You are saying I can use the Sidebar brick in your Easy widget to decide which pages the Easy widget is shown on. What should I enter into the Sidebar brick? It only asks for a "Sidebar ID". I do not understand what you are saying to do exactly. Thanks again.

    First - You can decide on what page the content build by Easy widget will be shown by many ways. Either by using the "On ID show/hide" or "On template types show/hide" ...etc.
    That's why the CONTROL part is there.
    This might be already what you are looking for.

    If you would like to control different widget the same way as the Easy VIEW content, you can make a sidebar put the desired widgets in there and then use the "sidebar" VIEW brick and apply the CONTROL logic on it.
    This way you can control what sidebar will be shown where.
    (What you do this way is actually showing a sidebar within sidebar, based on some Logic (if any is used))

    Ok I have deactivated and deleted the WordPress Page Widgets plugin. Your Easy plugin's "On template types show/hide" function is great! I can change what Easy widget appears on which pages. Perfect. The only issue is that W3 Total Cache is still not working correctly. There is another possibility, that your plugin Easy is conflicting with my Wysija Newsletters plugin. Is this possible? I still have problems editing my website at all when W3 Total Cache is turned on, even if I deactivate ALL of my plugins and change theme. I don't know what to do. Ideas? Thanks for your help, you have been very prompt with your replies throughout.

    hi

    I thing we are missing something here.. what is the problem with W3TC?
    Does it triggers errors or it does not cache properly or..?
    Be more descriptive ;)

    .. btw does the W3TC works without Easy on?

    (I have no idea if it collides with the "Wysija Newsletters plugin".. I see no reason for the conflict.. but sure, I do not know the Newsletter plugin, I have never tried it, so I don't know)

    This is resolved. I upgraded my server and got rid of WT3C. Your plugin works great. Thanks for your good work mi amigo.
