Custom Sidebars

Display custom widget configurations for every page or post on your site.

If you'd like to be able to choose what widgets display on each page or post of your site, then this is the plugin you need.

Screen space is limited and you can quickly run out of room when trying to pack every widget for every page of your site into one sidebar and a few widgetized footer areas.

Custom Sidebars allows you to display custom widget configurations on any page, post, category, post type, or archive page.
