    This is the 2nd plugin of its type that didn't work for me. I'm beginning to think this is a 3.6 problem. I've wasted enough time, I'm coding my own solution. Hope it works for you if you decide to use it.

    No offense, but I think as of currently 131 times a 5 star rating, the numbers speak for themselves to know the plugin does actually work. The reason why it doesn't work for you can have several reasons. Most of the time this is theme related. Anyway, good luck in writing your own solution. I can speak from experience it's quite a job.

    No offense taken. I tested it on two installations and it didn't work on either. It's not "quite a job" to write your own solution. It's actually quite easy and took less time than fiddling with your plugin. Thanks anyway.

    Congrats! Let me know when and where you make it public. I might be able to learn something from you.

    In my case, I just needed to remove a widget from the homepage. I didn't need any other fancy options or features. So it was very easy to just add code to my functions.php and using a hook I was able to add the logic that I needed to remove the widget from the widget array, thereby removing the widget from the homepage. It took about 15 minutes. It would have taken me longer to dig into why your plugin wasn't working for me. I'm sure your plugin works for others but it simply didn't work for me on two installations that did not have many plugins installed. Have you tested your plugin with 3.6? I really have no idea why it wasn't working. Thanks for the fast response though. Keep up your plugin work. :)

    I am using 3.6 and this is working great for me! Of course any developer can easily override PHP code to accomplish a given function, but that involves time/coding/testing. Your solution allows TOTAL control of every kind of Post Type/Page/Role etc. A genuinely well thought out flexible solution. Great plugin!

    @spiralmind : Yes, i always test my plugin before a new version is released. The homepage is a lot of times a bit of a hard nut to crack for DW, especially when it's a static page. But that static page needs to be set in the dashboard, otherwise DW will never be able to find out the page is set to the homepage. Other 'problems' can occur when content from other posts / pages is included in the homepage. Confusing DW which page / post ID to use for the conditional check.

    @fccadmin : Thanks! :)
