Show or hide widgets on specific posts, pages or sections of your site.
Oh man! You just saved my life!
I needed dynamic widgets for a bigger project with several custom post types. Your "Section Feature", where you allow for adding URLs as show/no-show criteria, is a brilliant idea! All other solutions (including the famous "dynamic widgets" plugin) did not provide any possibility for targeting single cpt-posts.
THANKS A LOT!
I have had this installed for close to a year now, on four different WP sites and know that when it does work it is a good widget; but that it frequently stops working, and will reset itself to its installed default settings and drop previously saved configurations for any of the widgets your attempting to manage within your site.
Warning, there has been little or NO support on this widget. And the most critical bugs have not been addressed by the developer in over two years or more.
Always use this plugin, very useful.
Does what it says. Thank you!
I like the ease of use.
Thanks for this great work.
Using this plugin used to be great, but we can no longer reliably show or hide widgets on single URLs or even on wildcards.
It seems to work pretty well with the standard checkboxes, byt when you try to define URLs is doesn't always work, so on a few servers we've given up.
At the moment i'm messing with it somewhere that I noticed it had stopped working - Not sure why, and the forums filled with users about trying this or that at different servers, and other's who have hasd it stop working.
That that may be "fine" for some people, but it does kill my ability to give 5 star rating for this plugin.
The best thing I can say about it now (and we've used it at over 20 sites) is that "if you futz with it long enough you can usually get it working."
Developers and site owners need a plugin to consistently and reliably have showing and hide any widget they wish, and unfortunately, this plugin has lost it's way.
Pour les débutants et les pros, gain de temps et simplicité.
When I'm developing a WordPress site, I install WP, then I install Widget Context.
This is, in my day to day life as a WP dev, the single most important plugin. Why the functionality of this plugin hasn't been merged into the WP core is completely beyond me.
