Reviews

good plugin

We use this plugin on most of the sites we build. I’m concerned that it hasn’t been updated in a while, but it seems to still work just fine.

Perfect but…

“Do not output before/after_widget/title” works exactly the way I want.
This is a perfect widget for my project, but… 2 years without update? Come on…

Can widgets load only on specific devices?

We’re looking to load a video widget only to desktop users. Hiding it would not work as it would likely still run in the background if hidden. Is it possible to load a widget just if device type is desktop, define a rule for loading on screens over say, 700px?
