Custom widgets

Description

The Ultimate WordPress Widget configuration plugin!

This plugin enables you to select which widgets appear on specific posts, pages, categories,authorís posts and tag pages. By default, all widgets appear wherever the sidebar is loaded within your theme. With this plugin, you can configure where widgets are displayed on a per post or per WP Template(Using conditional Tags) basis.

Instead of writing a longer description here’s what others say:

  • “Wow amazing plugin, I have been needing this in a long time… first step to remove the recent posts from front page but put them on the rest… thanks!”

  • “Currently writing a review of the plugin for Performancing.com and I get psyched up while writing it. With this plugin, you practically added the functionality to WordPress that Joomla has had for quite some time with regards to module assignments. Instead of modules in WordPress, people can assign Widgets. This is great.”

  • “Iíve read whole post and Iím amazed. It seems to be one of most powerful plugin for WordPress. Thank you for great share.”

  • “Installed fine and added the features I was looking for. This really help make my sited do what I want them to do.”

  • “I love the granularity this plugin provides. I use the Mandigo theme, which allows you to turn off widgets on content pages. But being able to put related posts & categories on a content page would be ideal.”

So many people just can’t be wrong! Go ahead and flexibilize your widgets today!
