Thanks to filter definitions you can decide whether the widget should be displayed or not for specific pages or page-types.

FAQ

I have found a bug. What should I do?

Just visit me on my website and describe the failure. I will see what I can do.

Does this plugin works with other plugins?

Usually there should not be a problem. Nevertheless I added a backup routine.

Cool stuff! But I miss something. Can I add it?

Sure you can. It’s GPL! But you can also contact me. Maybe we can develop this plugin together.
