Conditional Widgets

Description

IMPORTANT: If upgrading a MultiSite installation from Conditional Widgets 1.x to 2.x, you’ll need to visit the dashboard of each site in order to make Conditional Widgets function on that site. If you have a large number of sites, consider using this small plugin to assist you in doing so: https://github.com/MadtownLems/cets-multisite-dashboard-crawler

This plugin adds a form to each widget on the Widgets panel which allows users to choose which pages and/or categories the widget is either displayed on or hidden from.

For each widget, you can choose criteria to either SHOW or HIDE the widget, based on a number of categories. The interface is quite intuitive, and requires no knowledge of php or conditional tags.

Screenshots

  • Each widget gets an expandable form at the bottom of it for controlling display options on the home page and for both pages and categories.

Installation

Standard Installation Procedure

  1. Upload the cets-conditional-widgets folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Reviews

Works GREAT even on custom widgets!

Upon installation and activation it adds a very complete menu to the very widget menu. I had some widgets that came with my theme that were actually custom and this plugin manage to add the menu to those as well. It works perfetly well. I love it. I had been looking for this solution for a few days thank god I saw a post recommending it and here I am, happy user!!
