Custom Sidebars is one of the first essential plugins I install on every WordPress site I work on. No other sidebar plugin is as well designed as this; the new interface is really sleek and smooth and looks like it's built right in to the core. The WPMU team provides great support too.

Just what I need :)

It allows you to set different sidebars per post types, per individual pages/posts, etc. Love it!

Flawless Plugin & Support
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin works great for me running WP 3.9.1 and the Avada theme 3.5.1. After the timely fix, I really like the fact that everything is on one page in the dashboard now.
Aside from having to use the plugin to create the alternate sidebars instead of the standard Appearances->Sidebars, this plugin is flawless. Great job, WPMU devs!

p.s. Dev support really came through fixing the latest error in 2.0 in short order and thank you James for the premium membership!

Leider kann man dei Sidebar nicht komplett entfernen. Schade, so ist es für mich unbrauchbar.

Works great but sidebars are randomly disappearing
By , for WP 3.9.1

We're using this on the Anchor theme from ThemeForest. There's a handy side panel that allows widgets to be displayed on a per page/post basis. We've used Display Widgets in the past but this plugin is much more user-friendly.

However, like journalt's issue, the sidebars are randomly disappearing on the front-end and only seem to appear when hard refreshing the browser.

This plugin does not work. It looks nice.
But does not work.
Did everything as told in the instruction video.
Did more to try to get it to work.

Tested it with different themes.
Even the themes :

All themes I run were the latest versions.
Nop, nothing.
