Simple Page Specific Sidebars

Add a sidebar to any specific page by creating a widget area on demand.


Plugin has no built-in styling does not contain native styles; it's meant to use the styles of your existing theme.

This is a minimal plugin, placing function over form. If you would like to extend it, or would like us to extend it in later versions, feel free to contact us, or post feedback in this plugin's support forum.


Simply activate and go. There are a couple filters for customization:

$location = apply_filters( 'page_sidebar_location', 'side' );

$priority = apply_filters( 'page_sidebar_priority', 'high' );

These allow you to change the location and priority of the metabox on the "Edit Page" view.

$home_slug = apply_filters( 'page-sidebar-homeslug', $home_slug )

Use this filter if your home page slug is different from "home" :

NOTE: Any page that has a custom loop pulling in multiple posts will throw this plugin off. For some reason it always outputs the post ID as the last post output on the page. Also, the homepage is most likely the latest blog posts in WordPress so I created a check. It will get the Home page ID and use the Home page ID to get its sidebar. (uses is_frontpage() ) to check.

Contact us if you want some more filters or actions added. http://www.ivycat.com/contact
