Per Page Menus and Featured Posts IntelliWidget

Display content aware dynamic sidebars with custom menus, featured posts and other dynamic content on a per page, per post or site-wide basis.

IntelliWidget is a versatile WordPress plugin that makes your dynamic sidebars "content aware." It allows you to create custom "Profiles" for any page or post that can be used where the default sidebar widget would normally appear. You set the rules for each profile to display custom widget content any way you want.

Use the shortcode option to put custom menus, featured posts and other dynamic content anywhere on your site.

Because it is generated using active titles and permalinks, your sidebar content is always current with the latest versions.

Select posts by title, date, category, tag, and many other ways. Combine with custom post types to create unlimited custom sidebar content. Combine with your favorite jQuery Slider plugin to display animated slideshows.

Reuse the settings from existing profiles to save hours of setup time.

With Per Page Menus and Featured Posts IntelliWidget you can add just a few widget areas and create unlimited per page custom menus and featured posts and other custom text.

Tabbed Profile Panels

All of the IntelliWidget Profile settings panels are combined into a single tab menu on the Edit Post admin pages. You can hover over the tab to see the IntelliWidget the Profile replaces.

Intuitive Settings Panels

Settings have been organized into collapsible sections so the settings you use most can be found in one place.

Hover over any input label and more details describing the input will appear.

General Settings include a new "IntelliWidget Type," which controls whether a normal custom menu, featured post list, WordPress Navigation Menu, or taxonomy menu is displayed. Section title, unique id and classes fields are grouped together for easy access.

We have moved the "Template," "Post Types," "Specific Posts," and "Terms" menus to a "Post Selection" new panel to keep the most-used settings together in one place. Here you will also find the Post Custom Data Field Date condition checkboxes.

Select Posts Using Any Taxonomy

You can select posts based on Tags and Custom Taxonomies as well as Categories. You can also use multiple terms in the same profile.

You can control the way posts are sorted, post sort order, number posts shown, excerpt length, HTML filters, image size and image alignment.

You can add a block of text or HTML and control where it appears relative to the custom menus and featured posts. You can even use any shortcodes your theme supports.

Works with the Customizer

Test adjustments to your custom menus and featured posts in real time using the Customizer. See how each setting makes any dynamic sidebar content aware by viewing actual pages and posts.

Written for stability and performance

Database queries are optimized and cached. Admin functions are only loaded on demand. Long menus are loaded dynamically to reduce admin page size.

Actions and Filters

We've made IntelliWidget extensible by utilizing action and filter hooks at key points of the execution.
