big potential but not quite ready... (2 posts)

    Awesome potential. My big frustration: There does not seem to be any obvious way to install as sidebar widget, although the plugin appears to insist that this can be done "in seconds." For the life of me, I can't see how it's done at all. Instead, contextly sticks a gigantic gray box at the bottom of posts. The functionality is kind of cool but the aesthetics leave something to be desired.

    I'm certain the intention is for maximum flexibility but, at the moment, something big and obvious is missing. What that is, I have no idea. Hope the contextly guys figure it out soon, though!

    Hi Skipperdoodle,

    I missed this when you first posted this. Since your review (which is fair), we've added very different displays that are responsive and very easy to customize.

    As for sidebars, we've tried to clarify this a bit. What WordPress calls sidebars is different from what we do. The sidebars in Contextly live in the body of individual posts, not in the siderails.

    You make these inside an individual post using one of the buttons in the Visual or Text editors.

    We've made a lot of progress since you last tried us out, and would love to see what you think now.
