Stag Custom Sidebars

Create custom dynamic sidebars and use anywhere with shortcodes.

This plugin adds a button to widgets area to create a new sidebar area which you can later use just about anywhere.


To display the sidebar with shortcode you can use [stag_sidebar id="custom-sidebar"] where id is the id of the sidebar that appears in the description area of the respective widget area. You can also pass an additional parameter class in shortcode to add class to the widget area wrapper on frontend.


We have added compatibility with Widget Importer & Exporter, which gives you the freedom to import and export custom widget areas when moving widgets from one site to another or backing up the widgets.

If you'd like to check out the code and contribute, join us on GitHub. Pull requests, issues, and plugin recommendations are more than welcome!
