    This was a wonderful plugin until about two months ago, when it began breaking for no reason. I used it to create custom sidebars for a dozen pages , and they consistently worked across multiple upgrades of both WP and the plugin itself. Then, about 2 months ago the sidebars started to disappear for no reason at all. I would rebuild them, and then a different one would suddenly disappear. Today my primary sidebar is gone--not just on the front end, but on the back end, as well. I thought it was a fluke, but checking the forum it appears it is happening a lot and the developers have not given any suggestions for a fix. My advice -- check daily to make sure your sidebars are in place. Or better yet, switch to something that is more stable and/or has developer support.

    Hi @journalt,

    Thanks for your feedback and sorry you had trouble with the plugin initially. I see that we discussed this with you since those initial troubles here:

    Glad that seems to be working well for you now and we'll be happy to assist with any further trouble you might have. :(

    Cheers!

    Hiya,

    Could you perhaps try the new plugin and consider changing your rating if it solves your issues?

    We've taken on a lot of feedback and put a heap of work into making sure it rocks out now.

    Cheers, James

    Hi, James,

    I will be happy to review it again. I am in the process of updating my site and when I'm done (I thought I would be by now but you know how that goes!!) I will be happy to give you my input. I can see with just a cursory glance that you have made some changes, so give me a chance to set it all up properly and I'll rate it again.

    Thanks much for taking the feedback and using it constructively. I'll get back with you here ASAP.

    Take care,
    Kathie.
