This plugin generates as many sidebars as you need. Then allows you to place them on any page you wish.

Version 3.0 is here!

The new version 3.x has many advantages compared with the old 2.x. First and the most important is that it remove the need to add some special code to the theme in order to display the generated sidebar. That's because it now can override the default sidebar and apply special conditions for any page on your site.


  • Unlimited number of sidebars.
  • Replace default theme sidebars using the conditions or globaly just by selecting the sidebar that you want to replace.
  • Show the generated sidebars on any page you wish without touching a single line of code in your theme.
  • Drag to sort sidebar position.
